In other words, as of the day of writing this post, what is the expected lifetime of a Radeon 5770?
Life span? Good year or so, though, depending on your IQ needs, it may be required for you to purchase a new card now, or a crossfire solution, using 2 5770's or 2 5830's, unless of course you need/want more ram; 2 to 4 gigs is the most powerful, and it'll last you 2 years, with max IQ and greater aa/af quality for most games you'd play.
The cost, however, is dependant on your finances and willingness.
