I have had the ATI Radeon HD 5850 1 gig card for a couple of years now and have really liked it. I use it for gaming. I would like to upgrade to another ATI/AMD card. I am looking for a noticeable difference between what I have and what I am getting but don't really want to break the bank. Any suggestions?

Word of warning on the 6850. They are slower then the 5850. If you get an OC'd model it might/will perform close to the 5850 you already have. You really need to get a 6950 if you want to "feel it".

I wouldn't recommend anything less than a 7850.

Getting a 6xxx now would not be a wise choice , i would suggest a 7870 , but as mirssokah said anyhting less than 7850 would be unwise

You definitely want a 7850 or higher. Don't get a 6870, you won't notice any difference.
