I like keeping my GPU under 90c.

The 5770 is better then the 880gt in pretty much everything. They aren't very comparable

Oh, I forgot to add 8800GT SLI vs 5770. A single 5770 can beat an 8800GT by 10-20FPS from the last benches I saw, but as I researched, people told me 8800GT SLI is better for more FPS (don't know how much), but the 5770 is more future proof (being 1 card, DX11, etc)

Mine never goes over 40C...overclocked.

Might be because I have it on water though.

Never went over 60C on stock cooling.

Would the 8800GT make a good PhysX card?
