Hello, I was going to build a rig but decided to wait for bulldozer. Now I am wondering if i should get the 6770 or the 6850...I just dont know. I want to save money the 6770 is only 130 $ But the 6850 is 170 $ But the 6850 is better (I dont know how as seeing every newegg spec report i read the 6770 is 50 mghz faster ?) My budget is no more than 780 $ Now I have chosen my psu, case, ram, hd, OD, and the mobo, I am also pondering getting the 965 BE and OC it a little so it will be close to the core i5 but it will be 100 or more off XD. Please offer suggestion's I just dont know what I want....but I know i want something :sarcastic:

But to answer your original question... The 6850 is worth the extra $$$ and so is the 6870 in my opinion but not the 6900 series if your on a budget, the 6800's will play the next new games for ~1-2 years on medium-high

Can you post your build so we can see if there's cheaper solution with the same or better performance? We can try to cut out the fat and pour more money on the GPU.
