    Yes, the 6850 is superior. Wondering where you are seeing it for $110? Newegg has them for around $150 before rebates.
  2. Nvm, it is 120. And it is from AnandTech.

    My other question was, does the brand name effect performance dramatically? Like Sapphire, ASUS, Diamond etc.
  3. Blah, need to go to bed.lol I found the deal from geeks.com
  4. Brand doesn't really impact performance that much, but it does give you some indication of the kind of support you can expect if something goes wrong. Check the reviews, and make sure you are buying from a brand that stands behind their product.

    At those prices, I'd go with the HD 6850 without thinking twice about it. Only $10 more for much greater performance.
  5. Thanks!
  6. brand really doesnt make impact, i prefer for amd cards, chose sapphire ones.
  7. 6850 all day. If you can nab one for 110, do it.
