Furthermore, pretty much the entire hardware community thinks (by way of user experiences) that the HD 5770 (especially when overclocked) is in the same performance league as the HD 5830.
I don't know why I'm having to repeat myself here, but it sounds like you're not willing to admit the overlap that exists between the high-end of the performance segment and the low end of the enthusiast segment.
It's much the same as the 6600 GT overlapping with 6800 NU, 7600GT and 7800GS, 9600GT and 8800 GTS 320.
But does it makes sense to you that I'm getting WORSE, noticeable worse performance with the GTX 460 vs the HD 5770?
It's been reported that some of the 400 series cards don't play nice with BFBC2, low GPU usage, jerkiness, some stuttering, etc... and that's exactly what I'm getting.
