I would recommend the 5770. Get an XFX for a lifetime warranty.

I would recomend the 5770, like rainbow six recomended, though I typically recomend Saphire. they are the number one retailer of ATI chipsets and ive never had a saphire card let me down. :D

The GTX 260 has a slight performance edge over the HD 5770 but I'd still recommend the latter because:

1. Supports DirectX 11
2. Less power-consuming
3. Cooler and Quieter
4. Eyefinity—the ability to run three concurrent display outputs

Overall, good value for money.

If your willing to trade in DX11 support for a slight increase in performance, the HD 4890 is another great option !

Hope this helped.
