Default Best Hybrid SLI choice??

Got a motherboard with hybrid SLI, so I figured I might as well get a card that i can use this feature with.

I'm looking for a card around £100 but will go higher if its worth paying for it. Was going to get an HD5770 1GB Vapor-X or just a normal version.

So is it worth getting one now? or when does NVIDIA release the new cards and is it worth waiting?

An HD5770 won't work with Hybrid SLI, if that's what you were thinking. But it's probably your best bet, since Hybrid SLI isn't really worth using.

Hybrid SLI is only for people with very low end cards.
If you have a mid-high end graphics card, it won't benefit from Hybrid SLI or Hybrid Crossfire.
