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.

ScrewySqrl September 21, 2011 5:47:31 PM 6870. Its a better base card than the 6850. Even with overclock on the 6850, the 6870 simply has more processors.
