Hey was just seeing what everyone thinks is a better value... Im building a new computer and wanna get the best value for my GPU and dont really know which one to get. Im going to be using it for a Gaming rig.
so what would be the best value a 5870, 5850, 6870, or a 6850
What resolution? The 5870 is the best. 6850 = 5830 with better tesselation. I heard that the 6870 was like a gtx 460 I think. If your gaming at 1920 x 1080 go for the 5850 or 5870. Really all of the cards will do, just the 6000 series of those are a bit weaker for 1920 x 1080p. If you choose the 6000 series it should still do you well at 1920 x 1080p just not as good.
buy the gtx 470, its as good or better than a 6870 and in some games it beats out the 5870.
Not to mention it is cheaper than both of those on newegg right now
Just know that you will use more power and produce more heat and noise with the gtx 470 vs. the ati cards.
