    Look 6870 its a little bit faster than 6850 but there is not so much difference that u will say wow!
    The difference of price between 6870 and 6850 is much than their performance difference.
    I think the price difference is about 70$ but i m not sure.
    So u better put your hands on 6850.

    *HD 6850:
    GPU 6850
    Core Clock 775 MHz
    Memory Clock 4000 MHz
    Memory Size 1024 MB
    Memory Type GDDR5
    Memory Interface 256 bit

    *HD 6870:
    GPU 6870
    Core Clock 900 MHz
    Memory Clock 4200 MHz
    Memory Size 1024 MB
    Memory Type GDDR5
    Memory Interface 256 bit

    There is the difference of Core Clock n Memory Clock.
    Both consumes nearly equal power.
    If u can afford 6870 easily then go for it.
    Best of Luck zniff.

    There is difference of warranty and the type of cooler they use.
    Some make less noise or even silent.And they also do ventilation of air in case
    XFX is the best
    XFX offers excellent warranty.
    These are the general differences
    U should select with respect to your budget.

  7. ive heard talk about this XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5
    PCI-Express 2.0, "BLACK", 2xDVI, HDMI, 2xDisplayPort, 940MHz
    why does it say "black" is it some kind of superior thing or just a clocked HD6870
  8. Check the specs, it maybe an overclocked version. Try and match the specs of the card with the one's provided by geniusender above.
  9. it actually is a clocked version
  10. Its an overclocked version alright!

    If you can OC, then do it yourself and get a normal card. But if you are not too confident enough then you can get this. Or if the Black edition is on sale and you are getting it cheap.
  11. i think ill get a normal card, because ive got the experience and i kno experienced people
