hey guys,

i was browsing around the internet and was searching for the radeon hd 6770. now i found a few different versions of this card. some versions look different and more "cheap".

as you all see the card on the second link looks like crap compared to the first link. is there a difference in power between these cards or is it just the look.

i also found a few other cards with the letters MSI, is this brand like a cheap manufactor? or om i missing something?

I agree with gary1 if you can get the 6850. But if not there isn't much of a difference between different 6770's. Main difference is the cooler a better one will allow you to overclock more than for example a reference model (heat-sink from factory). If you don't plan on overclocking you can look either for the cheapest one or for one that is factory overclocked.

What is your PSU, motherboard, current GPU and CPU?
Also budget?

hey gary1 thnx for the reply,

i know that the 6850 is a better choise but i was really wondering because the hd6770 is not the only graphic card with more different "versions". but they are like all as good even the MSI wich looks way "cheaper"?

Yes all as good (as long as brand is good too, which MSI is) just different coolers so if you want to overclock you may want to spend a bit more so you can overclock further.
