Windows 7: Looking for a new card

Looking for a new card

Hello all!
I am looking for a new card (Current one is ATI Radeon HD 5770). I am looking for 2 GB+ and supports 3 monitors (and is made too, this one just barley does and it doesn't always work well). If possible I would like NVIDIA, I have had much better experience with them but I can still deal with ATI.
It also must be the same PCI type as the 5770 (PCI Express 16 Pin I believe)

3 monitors on a single card, then AMD is your only option as Nvidia hasn't released one that does yet. You want more than 2 monitors with Nvidia you're going to need two cards.

Yes that card would. I am running that card and it performs excellent. For example in Crysis 2 with dx11 patch and hi res textures enabled, at full hd res with settings on ultra I'm getting on average 45-50 fps. So for gaming it's excellent and it does support 3 monitors...

A times I have connected my 52" LCD tv to the card in addition to my dual monitor setup with no hiccups

Sounds like the card for me! Thanks - I'll probably order it next month sometime.
I'm assuming I will have to remove all traces of 5770 driver before I install the new one correct?
