  1. Best answer
    6870 is faster than 5850,so go for it.
  2. Both use the same drivers, both are ATI-GPU based, 6870 is the new 5850 added a bit of performance. Conclusion - same as Maziar. Go for the 6870 unless you can wait a bit and see if prices are shuffled when 6950 and 6970 come out.
  3. MSI is a quality brand. The 6870 has several improvements over the 5850, inluding better DirectX 11 tesselation.
  4. ok Thnx every1, I will go for MSI 6870 now. Once system build is complete, will place pic too. Thanks again :)
  5. It's a great card,happy gaming :D
