What resolution are you playing at? Are you going to SLI in the future?

Your motherboard does not support Crossfire but I would still get the 5770 cause it's a DX11 card, newer technology.

kILLDR3n, I was recently in the same boat your in. I couldn't decide between the GTX 260 and 5770, but then I saw this video and I was completely blown away.

If you can get a 5850 instead of a 5770, then get it. It's a HUGE improvement and it overclocks great. Compare the specs

Get a 5850 if you can spring it.
