460 is the better performer

5770 consume less power

You decide, if it hardly games, then I suggest the 5770

Maybe you could go with 460s and make some demos of 3D stuff down the road.

I guess it all depends on what you call sexy, but if you need blue, I'd go Sapphir or HIS GPU.

I think some of the ROG cards are more of an acquired taste, don't get me wrong, I like the aesthetics of that one, but its pretty bulky, which is expected considering its got 2 overpowered cores that need cooling :)

You should try to grab 2 used 4890s for Xfire. I see going for around 70 bucks each all the time...
