Graphic card update

Am thinking about getting a newer graphics card. Am not a nvidia or ATI fan boi so I don't mind either just something that will give me a nice boost and last for a while. I currently have in a 5770 ATI in my machine but am looking for something a little more.

Any advise guys will be much appreciated.

Regards

Si

Re: Graphic card update

If there is no rush then then AMD are supposed to be releasing there new line up this quarter although rumours say January.
If you need one now whats the budget?, What PSU do you have? and I will only help if you start lanning again

Re: Graphic card update

I wont be flogging you my GTX 580 then

Check out the Radeon 6870, should be a nice step up, perhaps the 6950 if you can stretch to it.
Nvidia wise the GTX 560 seems to be the sweet spot atm.
