Budget?

Personally I love the look of the MSI Cyclone cooler so you could pick up any 2 cards with those. Maybe some gtx 460's?

Again, stating your budget helps people keep within it and suggest set ups accordingly

don't know , I have to decide now, because I want to format this build, I have a spare GT 8800 and a HD 4650, if I format ATI, I will purchase ATI, if I format Nvidia, I will purchase Nvidia, I don't want to have to clean the drivers on a new build.

How about a pair of these?

ASUS GeForce GTX 460 Fermi DirectCU TOP 700MHZ 768MB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini-HDMI PCI-E DX11 Video Card - DirectCanada

Cheaper (after rebate) than the 5770's you listed, and they pull some better numbers too.
