Im going to be building a pc this christmas and i have be looking at parts go up and down in price for the last few weeks. I have decided to get either a Hd 5850 or HD 6870 but prices have not been consistent and the 6870 has went way up since it was released. I am looking at this deal at newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... it is the cheapest the 5850 has been with a psu (which i need).
So should i buy now or wait until black friday/cyber monday? Do you think the 6870 will drop below $240 again before the new year? What do you think, this deal expires tomorrow so i dont have a lot of time to decide. Thanks.
Could some of you other guys give me some advice? Does anyone think i will get a better deal on this or a 6870 on black friday/cyber monday? What kind of discounts does newegg usually do on video cards on black friday/cyber monday?
That looks like a pretty good deal for the psu/gpu combo, but if your not buying all your parts at the same time, why not wait ?
You can always slot in a 6850 instead of the 5850.
The 68xx are a little better in tesselation. The 5850 is still a great card, sorry I can't make your mind up for you , lol
I would go with a faster cas latency for your memory, since the prices have been falling on that lately. For 13 more you can get cas 7 Gskill instead of cas 9 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...
