Stuck between this both. This computer is going to be used for VIDEO EDITING and LIGHT gaming.

It's an extra £28, is it worth the extra spend?

  1. 6850 is a lot better option.
  2. The HD 6850 would be better as it is the more modern card of the two.
  3. Get the 6850.
  4. 6850>5830

  5. if you play games get 6850, if you don't and just need gpu for your reasons get lesser one,
  6. I just need it for video editing. I won't be doing any hardcore gaming
  7. then get 6850 it's good for both.
  8. Video editing is more CPU dependant than anything, particularily for transcoding.

    I don't see the need for you to spend more.
  9. I will get the 6850 if i were you :)
  10. I say go for the 5830 - it's 33% cheaper, but the 6850 is only about 20% better. If you're not going to play many intensive or modern games, grab the cheaper option. Though I suspect you'll get more into PC gaming down the road with either of these cards.
