Should i buy Powercolor AMD Radeon HD 5770 1 GB DDR5 Graphic card?

I need advice as im going to upgrade my graphic card....i have a working SL 10.6.8 from NAWCOM's method

Im thinking about Powercolor AMD Radeon HD DDR5 5770 1 GB Graphic card,
it will cost me INR 5500/-
i have heard that it performs better than Nvidia GTS 450 and 550Ti, and is cheaper than both

Please suggest me if its meeting, My primary requirements are:
1. Gaming performance
2. HDMI port for audio+ video
3. works OOTB for Lion and Snow Hackintosh (I have MSI 890GXM Mobo and AMD phenom II X4 955 BE)

As what i've read somehere before, only XFX 5770 has some issues running Mountain Lion out of the box, though it runs pretty well with the older versions of osx. Im using XFX 5770, get pass with this problem without patching its bios by pluggin another card on the second slot while using my card as main display. Gaming is better in windows i guess and i was able to play bf3 at max though the temp really spikes up. Havent tested HDMI, sorry.
