Alright, let me be one of the only GeForce supporters D:

You could get a GTX 260 or a 9800 GT, those are pretty good.

They don't have dx 11 and the 5770 and 5850 destroy them cards.

Well I can get a HD 4890 or HD 4870X2 for a little more than a HD5770 that performs nearly as good as a HD5850....

Ok you gain DX11 but....

...So much for "technology will pass that card".

Technology will pass every card. Buy one that you can afford that will play your current games awesomely and play future games well. Buying the cheaper one now means buying another one sooner.

It's over your budget though: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 465

MSI Twin Frozr OC GeForce GTX 260 are nice performing cards, but they lack DX11 support.

Mine usually goes right in, are you sure it is the right information?

I once got one thing wrong and they didn't bother to tell me until later that night, which meant i had to wait anther day.

A 9800gt is essentially a re branded 8800gt which he already has.
