The Radeon 7850 is better. In this case, the 50 in 7850 doesn't mean worse. m 0 l computernewb March 27, 2012 9:52:13 AM here is a comparison http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/549?vs=540 m 0 l refillable a c 175 U Graphics card March 27, 2012 10:08:30 AM Go and get a 7850. Worth it over a 6870 In my opinion. However I think you should go with 6870 though, because that'd be sufficient for your needs and saves your money more. m 0 l bikerider March 27, 2012 3:15:21 PM seumas_beathan said:Here is a 6870 for $190 - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005C8RTTU?tag=hwcompare-20&ca...

Is the HD6870 future proof ?? m 0 l refillable a c 175 U Graphics card March 27, 2012 6:16:04 PM yeah, somewhat. But if you are really looking for a future proof card, go and get something that maxes out your budget. m 0 l bikerider March 27, 2012 6:21:32 PM refillable said:yeah, somewhat.

That I think will be HD7850 / HD6950 m 0 l bikerider March 27, 2012 6:22:59 PM I dont know if this is sounding dumb but can i watch movies in 3D with any of these cards using PowerDVD & normal 3D Glasses ?? m 0 l refillable a c 175 U Graphics card March 27, 2012 6:28:39 PM Sorry I don't know , I don't know much about that. But that'd be cool if you buy 7850/6950 which can stay for the future. m 0 l Best solution computernewb March 27, 2012 6:43:08 PM If the 6870 is $220 and the 7850 is $260, go with the 7850. The reason why people get the 6870 is because of its cost/performance ratio ($160-$170 here in the states). At $220 its probably not worth getting it.
