  1. it depend on the card specs
  2. id say definitely the hd6870 if you have an appropriate PSU, that sapphire cooler works well. The only downside to that card is the lack of included crossfire cable, but those are frankly a dime a dozen on ebay.
  3. Comparision: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600083901%20600083829&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=48%7C14-161-363%5E14-161-363-TS%2C14-102-948%5E14-102-948-TS

    Not listed for the 6870. Core is 900 (higher), but memory is Lower @ 1050
    Features not listed for the 6870. The 6850 may have better features and allow better Overclocking.

    Might want to google reviews to see how the really perform in games. If not much diff I'd also go with the 6870.
  4. Think i might go with the 6870
  5. 6870. Sapphire make good cards to be fair.
  6. 6870. Its a better base card than the 6850. Even with overclock on the 6850, the 6870 simply has more processors.
  7. JustLiveYourLife , think that would be a good choice, Im happy with my sapphire 6870
  8. I hope, lol.
