at 1080p resolution and under, it will be more then enough for the next 18+ months. make sure your PSU is up to par

Generally yes.

If you are fine with medium settings, then I think you can squeeze 24 months (or more) out of the HD 6850. Just just depends on how much performance you are expecting from medium quality down the road.

im still waiting on Skyrim before i upgrade my system. The elder scrolls series has a habbit of only running well on high end hardware. Most games will run on a 6850 with high detail no probs though.

plus medium settings down the road should be fine because they still almost look better than my console graphics.

I just want to know if this card will run games that are coming out in early 2011 will still run on high settings at a decent FPS.

Please let me know.

Thanks Again everyone

I just bought the 6850 and I am playing Rift on ultra settings with about 60fps. NO problems at all.
