I was planning on the 6850, but i am open to suggestions that is why i posted here.
I cannot power the 5850 on my PSU i only have 1-6pin connector.
But what is the huge differnce between the 6850 and the 5850.I read that the 6850 was rated/performed in the 5830-5850 catagorey.
Open to suggestions...
the HD6850 isnt that much slower then a HD5850. When overclocked it will beat it. the 6850 and 6870 prices are actually going up at the moment as there isnt much supply of them. now the GTX460 1GB is actually cheaper then the HD6850, but it does use as much power as the HD5850.
