AMD or Nvidia

Looking to upgrade my Video card, heard that going AMD video card with the AMD mobo and CPU is a better option. I have always used nvidia so I was looking to get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625 but I was wondering if there is a stronger AMD card for about 120-150.

  1. hd6850 or 6870 is more powerful than 550 ti for the price range you asked for. well that's what passmark said on their benchmark for top end gpus.
  2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150573

    EDIT: copied the wrong link first time, sorry.
  3. how does this one look http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125353, same price and comes overclocked, is it worth the price jump to go 6870?

  6. Awesome I think 6870 will be the way to go for me, anyone know about the second part of my question concerning if the AMD card actually has a greater combined performance when running alongside an AMD cpu and mobo? Or is that just marketing?

  8. mcmurraym, that last question you asked is true if you bought a APU that is capable of crossfire with a dedicated gpu other than that nope.
  9. Ok, thank you very much for all the info I know where I am headed now with my purchase.
