Is the MSI RADEON HD6770 1GB GDDR5 a good graphics card in your opinion? How much would you guys pay for it? Will it still be a good card for gaming in the next 2 years?

well if you dont believe check this out http://www.hwcompare.com/7617/geforce-gts-450-vs-radeon...
gts 450 is old and it price is less but if you searching for performance and price m suggest 6770 or go with new sapphire 7770

of course 6770 is good card but gtx 550ti is way better than 6770 with same price..

It's just because I'm on a really tight budget and I'm not looking for an amazing graphics card.
Newegg don't deliver to the UK but the cheapest I can get it here is $135

I could get the 6770 for about $75 to $80

which one you decide to go with?? 550ti or 6770 but i'm alerting you again 550ti is way better for performance..
May 16, 2012 7:11:39 PM

I think I'll wait untill I get more money and get the 550 ti, the card can only get cheaper right?

sorry, monu_08 newegg don't deliver it's product to UK and OP told us in the previous post hd 6850 is better but can cost more it's not same price..

but upcoming ati 7000 series decrease price of 6000 series u should think about but i recomend you to go 6850 and crossfire it beat in performance gtx 570

I thought about crossfiring it but my motherboard doesn't support it, I'm not sure if my PSU would support it either - it's pretty cheap and in need of an upgrade.

then a make budget atleast 150 buck so that u will future proof of gaming go 6850

May 16, 2012 7:39:00 PM

if you're thinking about crossfiring, cause crossfiring may produce bottlenecking so list up your specs?

atleast till now he just want to play games with good fps bf3 with no aa got 45 ti 60 fps by 6850

60fps in BF3 with single hd 6850 huh? impossible..
a b U Graphics card
May 16, 2012 8:17:35 PM

not just 60 but playable at ultra no lag could this be enough for 150 buck gpu
May 16, 2012 8:18:28 PM

Like I said I'm on a tight budget and I already have a main computer which I use primarily for gaming. I'm gathering parts just now for a new build, like a kind of side project because I've never built a computer before and I'd like to give it a go.
The parts I was thinking of getting are:

Novatech Prowler Midi Case V2
Novatech 500w modular PSU
Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2P G41 Socket 775 motherboard
Intel Dual-Core E6600 3.06 GHz (It's kind of old I know but my good friend is selling it to me for £15 i.e. which is about $20
4Gb DDR3 RAM 1333Hz

And right now I'm thinking about which graphics card.
May 16, 2012 8:20:19 PM

So yeah cross firing would probably bottleneck the cpu
a b U Graphics card
May 16, 2012 8:25:06 PM

indeed your cpu bottlenecking crossfire not the crossfiring bottleneck the cpu. Fo that setup i'd recomend 550ti.

May 16, 2012 8:26:36 PM

not just to excite ross alan 6850 will be fine and future proof for gaming and i also recommend that go for gskill 1333mhz dont go for novatech go for corsair brand because it handle pc power easily i highly recommend go for sapphire 6850 and corsair 600 gs psu for happy gaminig

who said crossfire now just go 6850 doubt check this http://www.hwcompare.com/9711/geforce-gtx-550-ti-vs-rad...

are you mad bro? Those are theoretically bencmarks, and indeed 6850 is better than 550ti cause it has more clock speed. You're suggesing corsair gs600w it's just waste of money even 400w will do the job.

if you think that higher wattage PSU brings a change in performance then it's entirely wrong, power supply only provide a power to different components suppose if you have a GTX 680 then you must have a 600w originally it requires 500w but 100w is for other components even when you intend to overclock your cpu + gpu then go higher in wattage.

May 16, 2012 8:53:10 PM

so but still 500 w requires to feed their pc

Review the benchmarks at Anandtech, such as this one: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/538?vs=541 before allowing yourself to believe that the GTX550Ti is a superior performer. Depending on the game, it basically trades with the HD5770, for which the HD6770 is basically a rebrand + BluRay. I have seen other benchmarks, such as http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/diablo-iii-performa... in which the HD6770 is notably superior.
While I would not buy MSI motherboards, their graphics cards consistently get good reviews for both cooling and noise, as well as performance. Tom's, Anandtech, HardwareSecrets, HardOCP, and other sites have performed a lot of tests. Benchmark scores are more reliable than the rantings of fanbois.
If it's in your budget, the HD7770 or HD6850 would be stronger than either of those. Any of these cards will run on a quality PSU, including one as "little" as a 380W Antec Earthwatts.

Edit: Manufacturers often recommend larger PSUs than needed in the vain attempt to counter all the overrated, liar-labeled junk out there. A "500W" Logisys, Diablotek, or other chokemax brand that is probably really only good for 300W-350W may barely be sufficient, and will likely croak after a few months (or weeks) of heavy use; a quality PSU like a Seasonic, Antec, or Corsair will run 24/7 for years without complaint.

6770 its a fine vga, like the 550Ti. Same performance in general. Get the cheaper one, its the same.

in most games 550ti beats 6770 so again i'd say 550ti is way to go.
