im confused to hell as what to buy, Ok to start of my Screen Res is 1440x900.
my mobo is CF ready so i want an ATI board.

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?
I dont know what to pick

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...
