5770 is future proof, however by the time ther is an abundance of DX11 games there will be other options... if you absolutly have to buy right now and don't plan to upgrade for a while then the 5770, if you still want to play games but will upgrade not far downt he road i would get somthig from the 4700/4600 family...

Any reason for that?
the 5770 is cheaper?

So in a straight down battle which is better?
Cheers for all the help

A suggestion if you buy a 5770 take into concideration customer support and warranty. I like the XFX double lifetime warranty plus they have always responded quickly to my support tickets and RMA's were painless and quick. They even upgraded me when the card I was RMAing wasn't avalible. Newegg.com - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
