Default Witch Video Card for new build.

I'm gettin the amd phenom II x4 965 (3.4ghz), and a M4A785TD-V EVO the mother board has Intergrated graphics but I want to purchase a new ATI 5000 series card should I buy a 5770 right now or a 5850 latter. I would still want to play games but I would probably only play WC3 for now as I wait.

I would save up for a 5850 if I were you. The 5770 performs slightly below a 4870 in general, and isn't that great of a value in my opinion.

If you're gonna go for a 5xxx, go for a 5850. The 5770 gets slapped silly by the 4870's price/performance ratio.
