Great card, although I'd buy a 5770 if I were you. It's more powerful, lower power consumption, newer tech (DX11), and you can find em for around the same price.

you can grab a 260 for about the same price used

The only reason I say EVGA is because they have outstanding customer service and support (edit: and warranty) for their graphics cards. Another reason to buy new, and not used. If it is only for gaming, you might want to look at a radeon card. If you are using it for photoshop and other apps, go Nvidia.
