    PCI Express 2.1 supports a large proportion of the management, support, and troubleshooting systems planned to be fully implemented in PCI Express 3.0. However, the speed is the same as PCI Express 2.0.

    Nothing whatsoever with performance.

    I've been coming to this site for going on 3-4 years now, grats on being the guy to get me to register an account!

    Same card, different design.
    Clocking seems to be same aswell.
    The second one is discontinued.

    edit: yeah, just saw the 577A is PCI Express 2.1 x16 where as the other one is 2.0

    The first has a cooler designed to exhaust into the case, the second is designed to exhaust out of the case.

    Well I decided against the 5770 and I won (on ebay) a MSI Nvidia GTX 260 with 3 games for $68!

    The age of the architecture of the GTX 260 shows in the price - it's the same as a 8600 or 9600. I hope the 3 games are good.

    Still on a GTX260 here, and it runs everything I throw at it at Max details. Can't complain.

    Now I have another question, would my Raidmax RX630Z be enough to power my 260?

    Well I kind of figured it out. It will support it because I have my 12volt rails combined at 44 amps and it needs 36 amps.
