So, I've decided to go with the HD 5770 Graphics Card

I want to play Call of Duty with it, and I may upgrade to play Battlefield 3 if this can't handle it.


Thanks for the input!

I have 2-year-old HD 4770 with only 512MB VRAM and I can play Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 2 on medium-high at 1920x1080 with a few stuttering in some scenes.
Call of Duty series, in my opinion, don't use too much GPU resources so I think your HD 5770 can handle it at 1680x1050 without problems.

The ATi 5770 is a great graphics card for resolutions upto 1600x900. It can handle anything at medium to high to ultra settings at those resolutions. Its one of the most recommended budget GPU's as well. Go ahead and get it, i am using the 6750(same as 5750) which is the younger brother of the 6770/5770 and i have been able to max out every game till now at 1280x1024.
And yes, the card u mentioned is a great card, as it is already at 850Mhz(stock 5770 is 800 Mhz), so it wil perform better than default 5770's.

Here's a sample benchmark of the 5770 from Tom's.
