  1. what i would like to know is why pay $10.00 more for a 7850 when the 7750 is also a BE, They both seem to hit a stability wall, from what I've heard, at ~3.0 - 3.2ghz.
  2. ^ I don't think the 7750's after the 7850 came out are BE anymore.
  3. whats the difference between a Black Edition and a non-Black Edition?
  4. From ehat I have read the 7850 is a 7750 with a higher clock , anyhow the 7850 will be better than the 5800 ......just about..
