More about sapphire powercolour
  1. Sapphire 6870 is your best. Good Luck :).
  2. I would vote for Sapphire as well.
  3. but y /??/ is it that features are different ???as these all card ranges from abt Rs. 7000-Rs. 18000 /-
  4. They're all similar quality wise but I've never have any problem with Sapphire cards before. I guess it's personal preference.
  5. Well because sapphire cards are tend to be rarer chance of being defective than powercolor. If you have Rs. 18000, why you not getting something better like 560 ti? Well anyway, system specs please so we are sure that you can put it.
  6. hmm but what's the price of sapphire or xfx or radeon 6870 in Indian Market ?? As u say that they all r d same quality wis so i wnt the cheapest of alllllllll
  7. i have 550 watt psu
    Intel core 2 duo e7500 processor with 4gb DDR 2
    Intel 945GC - GA-945GCM-S2L motherboard
    1600x900 screen resolution
  8. Also so many Models of hd 6870 ..... http://www.junglee.com/mn/search/junglee/ref=nav_sb_noss?k=hd+6870&i=aps but which will b d best yet cheap card for my spec and 20'' LED ??? { i wont b playiing eyefinity and stuff }
  9. And 1 more question what is d diff between xfx radeon 6870 and xfx radeon Black Edition hd 6870 ??
  10. Black edition has a small factory overclock that can easily be achieved with any 6870 model. Don't waste cash and just buy the cheapest you can find ;)
  11. so all this card have the same features?
  12. And is my processor and ram fine for ultra settings ??
  13. This one is the best if you're looking for the cheapest one:

    This one if you want to pay Rs. 10000 for better cooler:

    Hope that answer your question, XFX cards are pretty expensive in India, the only one that is cheap in India is sapphire.

    I don't really think you'll have no bottleneck, but there is a possibility if it doesn't. If it does though you can OC it. And which 550W PSU unit you have?
  14. i m not sure about the psu but it has 6 pin connector so can i play gta4 nfs RUN assination creed crysis and bf3 smoothly on this gpu and cpu ??
  15. In some games your CPU might be a bottleneck. Don't crank the graphic settings in BF3, that's for sure. Aim for medium with 0x AA and ambient occlusion @ off.
  16. 560 ti is better than hd 6870 ????
  17. no no its costly,...I will go for hd 6870 ...RIGHT CHOICE FRENZZ?? or should i upgrade a processor too or this card http://www.junglee.com/ENGTX560-DCII-OC-2DI-1GD5/dp/B0051E3BYM/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&qid=1331976147&sr=8-20 is better than hd 6870 ??
  18. How much power supply i need ??? and i should get a core to quad or core 2 extreme FOR MONEY ???
  19. Nonono, get something like q9550, It will suffice you for gaming if you are looking to spend some money on the processor.
  20. so for q9550 processor and hd 6870 ...550w psu is OK ?? and is there a need to overclock q9550 then ???
  21. No need to overclock it, i think it's enough, which PSU is that BTW?

    why u asked that question ,,, i need to change it ??? :o tha meaans more money :(

    to calculate how much W PSU is needed go to "extreme.outervision.com" and if this web site does not open in ie then open it in any other internet browser and don't add www in this link :non: got it


    when i insreted all my details of my pc it gave results that u need only min, 266w and reccom. 316w while AMD HD 6870 gpu requires min of 500w or more ??? :??:
  24. Quote:
    It always worked for me may be you inserted something wrong :??:


    u try .and insert ur gpu as hd 6870 and cpu as intel q6600 with socket 775 mobo.... :ange:
  25. No, 6870 with your system config max will consume about 400W. But since some PSUs (even the 550W's!) does not provide 400W, I have to see what is your PSU.

    no no i wnt to buy a psu i dont have it .....SO 500 or 550w is enough ???
  28. I recommend Corsair GS600 or something similar than that at least to be safe.
