So i have a 8800gtx that ive had for a long time now and my dad has a 5770 but hes getting a new card and giving me his 5770. So im wondering if i should just stick with my 8800gtx or install the 5770? any help would be appreciated

Well i just put the 5770 in this morning and it is better than the 8800gtx.
in GTA 4 with the 8800gtx i got around 20 to 25 fps with the 5770 i get around 45 to 55 so i like this card a lot better!
but my gtx did stay a lot cooler then this one
