if u're willing to part with ur existing 8800GTX...then nVidia GTX260 is a resonable upgrade. if not..then getting another 8800GTX is the only option u have. mixing one card with another..i don't think its a good idea.

I've figured out a way to get the money for a new card. I'm going to become a prostitute.

Is the difference between these two cards worth $20?

Ok well they seem to be exactly the same card so I'm not sure why one is 20$ more...

You could also get a 4870 which is a bit less expensive and is nearly the same as the 5770.

Don't spend 20$ more for that, clock it your self or like I said get a 4870 for less it's nearly the same card and does nearly the same benchmarks.

Don't get any 5000 series cards everyone is having a lot of problems especially 5770's its due to the drivers wait until they say they have fixed Grey screen and vertical line crash it continuously crashes for me but with my 10.5 beta drivers there's a lot less crashes.

The two 4870s on Newegg.

One is four dollars cheaper but doesn't have free shipping.

The other is more expensive and also doesn't have free shipping.

Doesn't sound like a big problem for most people, and they're fixing it so meh.
