    Crusher sold me his HD4850 which i used for a week instead of my GX2 and i loved it! sold the 4850 to my bro for silly money and traded my GX2 for a 4870 (ty moonpig) and my benchies and FPS rate has gone UP w00t. used nvidia since the 6800Ultra so, big step for me. im loving the ATI tho..next purchase is a 5770 for sure. thanks Crusher! :p

    The red side is the better side for now. in a few years or even months, it may switch again.

    It is entirely pointless to go for a 5770 from a 4870.
    These cards performs exactly the same.
    Go for a 5850 or forget about it.

    yes, and it at least offers DX11 instead of 10. which isn't huge but it's something.
    I agree a 5850 would be better... but it's also twice as much. if you happen to not have $300USD to spend on a video card, the 5770 will be a decent upgrade.
