that's the card he originally picked, but someone said it's outperformed by the 4870. ohh...that reminds me...typo on my end. we didn't get the 4870, we bought the 4890. still directx 10 tho. bought it locally because I really wasn't sure if it'll fit. newegg price was the same, so it wasn't a big deal.
anyway besides directx 11 what are quality differences between 4890 and 5770?
he's playing arma 2, GTA 4 , etc... stuff like that. but he's just getting into pc gaming... ex xbox player. lol
note: I did see the list Graphics Performance List
but couldn't find the 5770 on the list.
that psu has to wait at least til christmas. then he'll get a new case, etc...but right now i am broke.
