    I want to upgrade my crappy(ish) graphics card to this model Google Products, but I thought I would browse to XFX's website first to see what information the manufacturer had regarding the card.

    I found there are multiply versions of the card (including this one on google products)

    Now I had heard of different models being available but not on this scale, there are ten separate cards on XFX's website. I need to know that I am getting the best card/value etc

    help?

    If you look at the different models, you will see the difference. Some have cooling that exhausts out the back of the system and some have cooling that exhausts into the system. Some have a bundled game that comes with the card, etc.

    I do not really understand your post; what is it you want to know?

    Next are you sure your pw supply is up to running a 5770 type card?

    Thanks for the rapid response, I'm just in the process of upgrading atm

    I suppose I was shocked at the selection and perhaps a little startled tbh

    They all use a 6pin pw connector. Personally I like the type that exhaust air out the back of the case rather than into the case. It just makes more sense to remove the hot air rather than just move it around. Usually these type cards cost a few $ more however IMO they are well worth the slight extra cost.

    XFX is a fine mfg; their cards even have a lifetime warranty. In fact I use an xfx nvidia 260 card in my own system.
