Hello everyone,

I am upgrading my video care soon, and I found a few video cards which are in my price zone, a hd 6950 for $200, a gtx 480 for $230, and a hd 7850 for $260, my motherboard only supports crossfire, so unless the 480 is much better, I'd rather go ATI, which one would be the best?

Relevant specs -
i3 2120
corsair 600W PSU
- Thanks again

GTX 480 is a bit faster than HD 7850. but it consumes much more power and runs as hot as hell, it reaches 90C while hardcore gaming while the HD 7850 runs @ 62-64 @ full load.

So the best option to go with is the HD 7850.

Personally I like Sapphire they are the best partner for AMD and they make proper cooling to their products, Also the Asus Direct CU II is said to be the best around. So if you can't find Asus DC II grab the Sapphire one.

Is it worth it to get the overclocked version of it?
