    HD5770 is around the same performance as the 4890 and supports DX11.

    What CPU are you using?

    as far as computing power the edge goes to the GTX 260. however the 5770 will play nearly all games at highest settings at high resolutions and supports DX11.

    go for 5770, If you're looking to plan for the future, then the 5770 is probably the better option because of the crossfire scalability of the 5770 and the DX11 capabilities, but gtx260 would be faster than 5770 despite 260s expense and its higher consumption .
