Agree with the other members. If you're running that Athlon 250 at 4.1GHz, then a HD 6850 will run just fine. That PSU is adequate enough as well.
ive seen my friends rig running a 6870 with a core2 duo e7400, and its running fine, it just too long to load the game, but once loaded no prob. but guys where can i buy that with free shipping or secondhand! coz if my procie will make a bottleneck, im gonna upgrade it too
This is actually a really really good deal if you can stretch your budget and extra $10.
MSI Cyclone 6850 $160=$125 after MIR + Free Shipping
The Cyclone is one of the best aftermarket heatsinks the 6850 has to offer.And that card also comes with a copy of Dirt 3.You will regret not getting it if you don't.
yeah i see it, i say if there is a secondhand 6850, i will get it to save some penny for a new procie. coz im im in a little budget here, i already got a copy of dirt3, finised playing it also. i just want to run that game with dx11 features. and for future i want to use this computer for 2 years
You can also look for a second hand GTX460, roughly the same as a 6850.
I don't usually recommend buying second hand PC hardware, though. But you may go for it if it's okay with you.
Me also. I think the, often small, price difference isn't worth the risk. But as the op stated he wants to save money and maybe buy second hand. If going for new the cyclone would be the best offer indeed.
