Yeah it is a lot better... I have both (well the 5770 is my brothers but i have benched it)

In terms of performance, it cant be beat for its price.

No DX11 though.

No.... nothing can beat the 4850 x2 for the price.

DX11 doesnt seem to add a whole lot in games, in fact it appears identical to 10.1 in Call of Pripyat. The Heaven benchmark is a different story. It makes what used to appear to be a flat texture actually render in 3D.

idk if that will ever happen in games though.

Well its up to you really.

I would though if the 5850 isnt an option.

Just be sure you have enough power and a big enough case. You will lose drive bays in any mid tower.
