My previous 4890 just blew up and needs to be replaced, so now I'm trying to figure which way to go. If my understanding is correct, the 4890 is probably a little quicker than the 5770, but the 5770 has DirectX11. The GTX would be the fastest of the three, but would also cost me the most. Soooooo, any thoughts? EDIT: Dur, should have mentioned needs. Priority 1 is working in Final Cut, Color and Motion… After Effects to an extent, but that's more long-term as the company is paying for me to go get trained on it, but not for a while. Priority 2 is gaming. Don't care about heat or noise.
