    thank you robjordy ill go for for asus and it cheaper too ^_^
  3. Anytime. :D
  4. I wouldn't bother buying one of those more expensive 6850s because even the very cheapest ones like powercolor overclock just as high. I should know both my powercolor 6850s are at 940 core 1200 memory and solid as rocks at 55 degrees delta temp.
  5. Noooooo don't, the his iceq x turbo is good bit better, best cooling, acoustics and performance. Check reviews. Only problem is its a bit more expensive
  6. Powercolor ; :non:
  7. I don't know if you bought it already, but there is a sapphire 6870 for $169.99 (149.99 with $20 MIR) and it comes with Dirt 3 and Dues Ex

    thank you
    iceq x turbo 6850 looks realy good too lots of good reviews
  11. I have no idea how warm that 6870 runs, but I do have a sapphire 6850, which looks just like it, and it runs around 75*C max with the fan at 80% but I live in Chicago, which is nowhere near as hot as Hawaii.
    NOTE-I have my 6850 at 850 core/1100 memory and a sound card almost directly under it, blocking airflow hence the 80% (its on an matx)

    Edit- even at stock clocks its at 70*C at 78% fans (damn, I think it is time for a new mobo)
    Good luck finding a card!

    thank you jedi Mind Trick
    ill keep finding
  13. Go for the MSI Cyclone HD 6850 - cooler's just as good and it's a bit cheaper because it's not pre-overclocked.
