    I've always had Nvidia cards and really don't know much about ATI....That and I haven't upgraded in a few years...need to replace this 7900gtx.

    That seems to be the way to go, you may also be able to find a 4890 for under $200.00 which is supposedly better than the 5770.

    I can vouch for my 4870's

    These are the first ATI cards I have had as well, was always an nvidia loyalist, but these cards screamed when I bought them and still hold their own, I haven't yet found any game they couldn't handle at 1920x1200 with full quality settings.

    I got > 100fps on this DX11 benchmark, pretty cool benchmark too:

    There's also supposed to be a 5830 coming out in the coming days that should be in that price range and have support for DX11.
