I have decided on buying the 6670 radeon ddr5 card to replace my dead 9800gt. I can get either for the same price, which comes to $95.00 after mir. Any difference or preference of manufacturers? I know XFX has a life time warranty, but its not like this card will last me more than 3 years. SO which will be better for 2-4 years time? Thanks.
Im not sure of the brand off hand. Edit+ I checked. Its a "delta electronics" brand. It came with the Gateway FX. It has worked fine so far... But that is one of my concerns. I was told that if it ran my 9800gt, then it should run a 6770 no problems. Can the same be said if I go with a 6850? Also I see there is a XFX 6850 on newegg that is only 135 after mir.
So it can support roughly 300+ watts on the +12/v rail.Which is still enough to power a 6850 and the rest of your rig.Technically you wouldn't really want anything more powerful than a 6850 anyway because it would get bottlenecked by the Core2Quad @ 2.5ghz.
