I want to get a 6850 and i cant decide what one i want..well to be honest i decided between 3 different cards...

Asus 6850

XFX 6850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Gigabyte 6850

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)

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.
