thx,im trying to aim toward future games.think ill be teaming it with a 790x mb.
excellent choice and should be a strong combo
Sounds like a good choice to me. Given that it's DX11 and should last a while before another upgrade, and if he wanted he could even get a second one down the line.
5770 should be a dam fine choice; and will handle a lot of games @ 1920x1080

Does your friend game a lot or specifically what kind of games does he play? If it's mostly RTSs etc then you could get away with a lot less (and HD playback still wouldn't be an issue)
5770 would be an excellent choice and would get the job done

Also 5770 is great bang for bucks.

Agree with all of above. 4890 is also a great choice if you don't really care about DX11.
was going to go with the 4890,its been a great card for me.but im going to move toward dx11 so he wont get screwed with anything new comin out.
You could also get him a 5750, you can get a 5750 Vapor X for $149.99 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-865-_-Product) or you could get an HIS one with Dirt 2 and HIS Tool for $144.99. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-307-_-Product) The HIS card comes with free shipping too

Like coolrock said, a 5750 is pretty good, and cheaper. On the other hand a 5770CF does have power while a 5750CF is a bit stupid to get, better get a single 5850 then..
