Yes the 5850 is much better than the 5770 and worth the extra cost, but a newer 6870 would generally be even better.

More shaders, more bandwidth, more power consumption, and more price. Both very good cards, and can be found dirt cheap if you don't mind getting a used one.

So alot of conflicting info so far look at this and any other comparisons http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/charts/2010-gaming-graphi... in this test the 5850 got about 50% more frames per second on average @ 1920x1200. I am fairly sure the 5850 would beat the 6870 in most tests as well.

Wrong. I don't know if you really think that or you're trying to troll, but get your facts straight. Or if you're trolling you can just gtfo.

Just look at the stream processors. 5770=800, 5850=1440. This is more of an indication a speed than the other specs. If you're willing to go a little higher, the 5870 is double that of the 5770, basically two 5770's in one.

As you can see from my specs I own 2 5850s and 1 5770. The 5850 is a faster card but the 5770 is hardly a slouch. The 5850 requires 2 6 pin pci-e connectors while the 5770 uses 1. A lot depends on your other components. What is the maximum resolution of your monitor? I can play COD BO just about as well on the 1680x1050 20" screen with the 5770 as I can the 5850 on the 1920x1080 24" screen.

To the guy saying 5850 is faster then 6870, you must be joking right? 6870 destroys it!
