Hello, I am stuck between the ATI Radeon HD 5770, and the AMD Radeon HD 6850. I will be playing WoW, and doing some light video editing. What card is the better choice, and what brand do you prefer? I am thinking about XFX or Gigabyte. The games don't need to be on Max settings, but I would like at least 30 FPS on Max. Thanks
cpu, psu, and resolution all point to at least a 6850 imo, even the 6870s are cheap these days. In the end I would at least go for the 6850, imo its just a better investment at this point in time given your system specs and monitor resolution, if I were to pick a 6850 right now to purchase it would be this one:
either of these cards would be great for your res imo as would the 6850, but the 5850 and 5870 especially will bring significantly more gpu muscle to the table and they are a steal of a deal at present time and still more than capable in a single card configuration.
