ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Put this build together earlier this week but held off on a new graphics card until I could do some research. Looking around for hours and I have found a few cards that peak my interest.
The 7850 is more tempting because of the PCIE 3.0, it being the current series and that benchmarks here on TH show that it is about the same level as the 570, but again, I have been reading the the AMD drivers are terrible. Any thoughts or suggestions are much appreciated. Looking to have this card for basically two years before I start looking at an upgrade.
