Default thinking of upgrading my graphics card

i wrote a semi long thread but got an error trying to post it.... so im gonna just get to the point....

specs:
xfx radeon 5770 vcard
gigabyte p55ud6 motherboard
intel i5 core pu
full tower coolmaster haf
1tb hard drive
750w psu

what would u suggest to make my bad video card match my other specs?

5850 worth it? possibly even the 5970, im not too familar to nvidia cards.

There's nothing wrong with that video card at all, I think it's a pretty good match for the build to be honest. What's the goal here? budget?

I would say 5850 or GTX 460 if you want to upgrade.

I have to agree with Gibson here. I fail to see the weak link in your build. Why is that video card not good enough? If you're experience problems with it, try a different catalyst version.

Yeah, with the newer drivers there's a pretty big jump in performance. If you upgrade to a new card, you aren't going to see a big difference, and are going to pay a lot. Maybe just get another 5770 and crossfirex?
