Looking at a new GPU for a build. The Gigabyte version of the 5770 is $60AUD more expensive than the Gigabyte 5750, but the XFX 5770 is $30AUD more expensive than the XFX 5750. Is the price difference between the two something I should take notice of? and Brand-wise, what is a better brand (and card 5750 or 5770)

btw planning on running it on
Asus P7P55D Evo
Core i5 750 2.6ghz
Antec TruePower 650w

my recommendation is XFX 5770 . it is the best of mainstream cards for the future . it would be nice to add one later when prices drop further , and they will surely drop as even the "cost effective" 512mb 4870 debuted at 300 , now its 125-135 usd .

I'm going to be running mine on a Corsair 450 watter once I get my mobo back from RMA this week.

I went with the XFX 5770 and it should be plenty for a media center system and occasional gaming.

Its a lot of card when you calculate the new features you get...
