Nothing uses DX11 anyways? only windows 7...nothing more nothing less
some games do use DX11 such as DIRT 2 and a few others so not just windows 7 uses it and there are more and more games being built for DX11 and crysis 2 is supposed to have DX11 in built as well. so its good for future proofing
For the record...

Metro 2033 (DX11)
Games with DX11 Support

once again, good luck

I had bought a 5770 originally, but it just didn't do it for me, so I returned it and got the 260...

I have the XFX 5770 on my Windows 7 setup and i have not had a single issue with it. I can play all the newest games at very good FPS. MW2, BioShock 2, Dirt 2, the card is very good at playing sequels. ;-)

i'm glad everything is working out well. It's easy to volley back and forth between which card is better, but truthfully they're both good. And judging by the fact that you plan on using this for a while, the 5770 was probably a much wiser decision.

happy gaming
