Im thinking of upgrading my GT220 to one of the above but dont know which is best, I hear the 4870 has more power but the 5770 is overall a better upgrade, care to shed any light on my situation?

P.S-Im in UK, you know any good retailers. I currently use aria.co.uk.

5770. lower power, only 1% slower than the 4870, more overclock room...

Agreed, there. Plus, the 5770 is a DX11 card, the 4870 is DX10.1. I'm quite happy with it, it's cuite comparable to a GTX260 (better, in some cases).
