I will be getting a GPU soon, and my case and PSU have been changed, now wondering if I should get a 6850 instead of a 6770, money is kind of tight, but if it's so much stronger, then I'll go ahead and spend the extra cash.

I plan to play games like:
RAGE
Skyrim
Battlefield 3
Borderlands 2
The Witcher 2

My native resolution is 1980x1080.

Is it worth it?
How much stronger is it in percent?

Well for essentially $40.00 bucks more you get a 256 bit memory interface,instead of 128-bit on the 6770,and 960 stream processors instead of 800. I believe the hd6850 is worth the extra money,however you should consider things like warranty, and if you plan to cf in the future, etc....

get the 6850 over the 5770 performance wise it is a far stronger card, by a lot.

i dont know about stronger, if you stepped on them they would both break. but the 6850 is certainly the better gpu by a long way, especially for 1080p resolution.

5770 is just barely enough for HD gaming
6850 is just enough for proper high res gaming

This is what I want to hear, but the 6770 performs just fine in gaming. But I guess ill spend the extra bucks on it.

5770 and 6770 are no different except for the 3d blueray playback
forget 3D gaming on it though, The 6850 just offers a lot more power

If your money is a kind of tight, I think you just buy 6770 because they are all middle level cards. btw, I think you can try gigabyte's graphic cards for their quality, fans, and heat dissipation.
