I finished building my budget gaming pc almost two Mitch's abomination and as a soon to be 14 year old (June 25) I can get an early b-day present. I bought the rig with my own money.

My 550tinthat I got for free died permanently, and am about to get then 7770. 99$+ a 15$'mail in rebate equals only 84$. Would the 6850 be better used? This is newer and smaller, and I will over-clock if needed.

the 6850 would do slightly faster. but the hd 7770 is great for its price. also getting 1600Mhz ram is better.

Forgot to mention I have dual 1680x1050 monitors, and since this has 1 dvi, I will switch to only one, and later upgrade to a single 1080p monitor (Christmas). I play skyrim, grand theft auto, batman games,just cause 2, bio shock, battlefield, counterstrike, etc all siting in my steam library

an hd 7770 will be slow on dual monitor gaming it works excellent on one monitor. you can use dual monitor for browsing and stuff.

also getting a fx6300 would be better with its 6 cores at around the same price with the fx 4300.

The thing is that I already built this pc, just don't have a gpu yet. Deciding which one to get. Do you think the 6850 is worth it after these: no dx12 support, huge, loud, hot, higher tdp. In raw performance it is better, but after all of that is it? Also the 7770 is new, and 6850 used from amazon. Also, the r7 260x is 94$ Used, but I hate the way the gigabyte one looks

there is no dx12. getting the 6850 is "slightly" faster.

but if you're on tight budget the hd 7770 will do. i never trust used stuff.
