More about what good radeon 6850
  1. No they are a good match!
  2. At very low resolutions or graphic settings it might, but performance would be so good you either would not notice or would not (and should not) care.
  3. so should i stick with the 965 or get a 1090t
  4. Stick with the 965 there is no benefit in gaming from more than 4 cores!

    Thank you, nd with 6gb ram be enough?
  6. AMD only supports dual channel so most common combinations are 2 x 2GB or 2 x 4GB. I would say 4GB for 32bit OS and 8GB for 64bit. (although 2GB 32 bit and 4GB 64 bit is min recommended.)
  7. so they dont support triple even though the mobo can support it?
  8. Triple channel is for Intel LGA1366 and as far as I know they are the only motherboards that support it.
  9. im planning to get a Msi 880g E45
  10. Yep dual channel! Have you considered 9xx series board for bulldozer compatibility http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130608

    Oh ty
  12. What if i wanna crossfire 6850, i mean like buy 2x 6850. does my cpu support ( in another word bottleneck it?)
  13. The 965BE will handle 2 HD6850 fine in Crossfire.
  14. btw does 6850 use 2 pci 2.x16 slot or just one, nd idk if my mobo will fit the card. or the card will be too big for my mobo. ( either, msi 880g E45 or gigabyte 880gm d2h)
  15. The card will only need a single slot but the cooler on the card will overhang and block the next slot to it. Both those boards will accept the card.
  16. wait.wat? i dont get the overhang part/ does it just like hanging above the next slot or just use the next slot?
  17. It is not using the slot but making it impossible to put another card in it!
  18. LOL. right now amd just release the FX cpu. which is perfect match for the 6000 hd series. so what should i get?
  19. Look at the reviews! If you are thinking gaming, for now skip the FX (Bulldozer).
  20. kk thank very much

    will the copper part on the msi e45 block the gpu? ( 6850)

    Not at all, you should have plenty of room for your 6850. The only problem I face right now is my SATA ports being in the way of the card but on the MSI motherboard it looks like they won't be a problem as they face the front of the case.
