Thanks alot

A 5770 performs like a 4870, so it's about 10fps in difference in alot of games.
Personally, I would go with a 5770 if you have the option, it has DirectX11

I would go with the GTX275 since it has PhysX and also it performs better and heck for 20 bucks that's a sweet deal considering you don't have a second slot to worry about.

I vote 4890 since stock vs. stock the 4890/275 are very close, however once you start to overclock the 4890 can take a big lead due to the large overclocking potential. IMO, the 5770 is a waste of money since its about as fast as a 4870 and will be too slow for DX11 games. Transition cards rarely do well, and the 5770 is one of those transition cards.

4890 is the best bang for buck on the market now.

The GTX 275 is not a better card, and I've had first-hand experience since my friend owns a rig similar to mine except with a GTX 275. Go for the 4890, you won't regret it.
