I cant decide between an Sapphire Radeon 6850 or a Gigabyte Radeon 6850.
Sapphire has 775 while gigabyte has 800 freq
But the gigabyte is actually cheaper by ten bucks
Is the sapphire better quality?

Amd Phenom II x4 955 3.2
MSI 785GT-E63 mobo
500W Antec Earthwatts PSU

It could be on sale. There could be a difference in warranty period. Whatever...
For 1440x900 resolution, CF is not rely necessary. In fact, it would probably be a waste of money since that resolution is no very demanding for a HD 6850.

Both cards perform well in that resolution...
I don't see the urge to CF-ing 6850 in that reso,,you'd do well with one...
5770/6770 for a perfect match in that reso,,6850 for future-proof...
