you mean 512MB

if ur resolution is = or > 1080p, i suggest 1GB. plus DX11 cards are for future-proofing. and 1GB is way more future-proof

That being said both cards are great for the price.

Any you can't unlock a bigger memory bus or more ROPs on the 768mb card. The memory bus and ROPs are directly tied to the number of memory chips, which are physically missing on the 768mb card.
Sorry I meant to say 1680 x 1050.

why do you need to crossfire it? 460 is better than 5830, which is better than 4890 i thought?

On the Fermi cards, the number of ROPs is tied to the memory size, as is cache. 1680x1050, IMO a 768 would be fine. Look at this:

If that's the only reason you're getting rid of your 4890, just buy this.

i thought about getting an aftermarket cooler as well but i don't feel confident enough to mod a computer component runs up to 90 degrees. Also, I have read a lot about cooling the VRM with a high quality heat sink is more important. It's not that popular of a solution either

Just feel better with a solid card that i can just plug in and OC

Is 5770 noisy at all?

Thats the way i feel. If the 768MB walks up and hits the 5770 and 5830 both in the throat and says what now *****es!! Do I really need a 1GB version? I wanted a ATI but right now Nvidia has the money shot at the 200 price range.

Unless we have another round of 465-like, 460 cards shipping with full memory chips on board.

If its the case, and companies are playing games with memory chips again, it would be less of a surprise in the 200$ price range, then what we're seeing happen to the 465/470 350$ price range.
