GTX 260 vs ATI HD 5770

i M going to buy a new PC in few days.

But i m not able to decide as on which GRAPHIC CARD to buy.

i Have 2 choices :
1} ATI RADEON HD 5770
2} nVIDIA GTX 260.


Pls. dont give me any other choice as i have decided to buy any one of these cards.

ATI 5770 has DX-11 SUPPORT, EYEFINITY, etc BUT IS SLOWER THEN GTX 260 ON GAMES.

nVIDIA GTX 260 HAS
CUDA & PHSYx which is a BOON TO GAMING & ANIMATION.
i Dont think ATI has such technologies with them.






SO PLS. REPLY

I have seen less problems reported with nvida products and have the GTX260 on my main system. I would go with the GTX260.

I've always been a GeForce fan...only ever tried one Radeon card in my life and I hated it, it was impossible to deal with overheating and the drivers issues, but they have come along with the products but I can't say and never will be able to. So go for the 260.

GeForce GTX 260:

- Slightly better all around performance.
- PhysX.
- Less driver-related issues.

Radeon HD 5770:

- Lower power consumption/temps/noise level.
- DirectX 11.
- Shorter/smaller PCB.
- Cheaper.

Another thing.

If you're willing to spend ~$200 on a GTX 260, why not just go for a Radeon HD 4890?.

Doesn't have Radeon HD 5000-series driver-related issues, and is significantly faster than any GTX 260 out there right now.

actually i agree with this..... the 4890 is faster, and is about the same price, um 5770 has some driver issues but they'll get fixed soon enough, um 260 just another nvidia card nothing really special about it

You should just ask goolge then come to your own conclusion because you will have ati fan boys loving ati and nvidia fan boys etc etc....

The question should be which am I going have more trouble with.

Pizzaman what's so special about a 4890? I happen to have one and there is nothing "special" about it. Nvidia happens to be more special because the 4890 has no physx or cuda etc etc.
