i keep wanting to get the ati because i do think you get better value for money and allthough having amd and nvidia dont make any difference (a friend has a nvidia card on an ati chipset) i like the fect that i will have an amd/ati system, and i want to get a red fan. plus the 5770 has got a much better clock speed. and it dosen't use as much power. only disadvantage is the CCC issues, but maybe that is solved in 10.3? also i think it depends on your other computers hardware because some poeple are reporting theres is working fine.
from what i have experienced so far:

drivers & control panel software: ATI has been caught up with nVidia
power consumption: ATI better than nVidia
dx10 speed: ATI worse than nVidia

when i'm going to choose next card it could be either. and years back i was going only nVidia.

I won't lie, I've been having some trouble with 10.3. I'm trying to determine if it's my OC, or the drivers.

Almost all upcoming games will support Dx11, I have been using my 5770 for 3 months and never had an issue with the ATI drivers..

Go with the 5770.. If you can squeeze a little more money then get 5850..

if you're not planning on overclocking, you could always buy a factory overclocked card for a little boost. I know xfx sells a few, although they're more expensive. the msi r5770 hawk also has a 25 mhz factory overclock (875 core clock) and can easily hit 1000 mhz with afterburner. i've been running 1008 mhz core, 1408 mhz memory stable. just a suggestion. you get more performance for your money

i have my HD 4200 overclocked from 500 to 725Mhz. stock mb heat sink. no problems whatsoever. this chip can be safely clocked to 1000. so lots of reserve.

You'll notice that I posted that it was my drivers, not the overclocking.

good choice, you can't go wrong with the 5770. The 10.3 drivers have been running perfectly for me since they were released, so no worries there.

Good luck!
