Gigabyte 6850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... what i really want is one thats quiet,cool,and a card that can achive a decent overclock 15% or more.(even though i know this is not always possible) One last thing do you guys thank my athlon will limit my gaming performance or make it were i cant play games at (1680/1050 max out Without AA) heres the rest of my RIG Antec 300 case Antec 650 earthwatts power supply(just got it ) Amd Athlon II x4 620 OC 3.25ghz 6GB of ddr2(800mhz) ram as of now ATI 4770 More about : amd 6850 shadow187 November 29, 2010 10:42:45 PM If you think you can overclock a bit more on your athlon you'd be just fine. Try to hit maybe 3.6ghz? The ASUS DierctCU HD6850 is purportedly the best, as per Toms' own HD6850 showdown article. Pallimud December 1, 2010 6:19:24 PM ASUS is the best for the ones they tested. They didn't test the XFX or the Gigabyte. XFX is a great brand in general. Gigabyte has another one for $199 with a nice cooler and slightly OCed, but not many reviews. I've yet to see a review of these two though. Related resources 6850 - with what should i upgrade my PC - Forum What should I replace 6850 with? - Forum Which amd driver should I try installing?
