    Is your TV full HD or just HD ready?
  11. at 1920p hd 6850 is a very good choice. It has higher pixel rate which will support at higher resolutions :D

    here are the benchmarks between hd 6850 and 6870. If u'll play bf3 , crysis 2 etc i'd recommend a hd 6870 it can run most games easily but a hd 6850 isn't so bad either. you'll get enough frame rates to play smoothly. In crysis warhead only, hd 6850 gives a 25 fps, in others it is much better. :D
  13. buy GTX 550 Ti OC~

    here read this its about gtx 550 ti or hd 6870 even the OC version can't beat a hd 6870
  16. wtf the gtx 550ti oc is better then hd 6850 dont tell him wrong things the gtx 550ti stock one is just a bit better then hd 6770 which is way less in performance then hd 6850 and an factory oced gtx 550ti is about the hd 6790 in performance which is also less in performance then hd 6850 first think what you are saying and then tell.
  17. Save some money and go with HD6850 if you play on 1080p..

    Simply put, don't hamstring yourself for future gaming, spend an extra 20 bucks, stop with the takeaway latte's for a week or three and enjoy your rig for years, rather than months.

    It's compatable with your 550W PSU no matter the brand as the new technology makes it rather efficient.

    It will game up to HD, but it's sure as hell not going to be bottlenecked by your Q6600!

    So TL:DR don't be a stinge, spend a wee bit extra, and in that price bracket the performance (read: gaming life) by far beats the price difference!

    it clearly says gtx 550 ti is less in performance than hd 6870
  20. even it is less in performance then hd 6850 the gtx 550ti oc cant compete with hd 6850 if u overclock it to higher level then yes it can reach hd 6850 level but if u overclock hd 6850 then it will do better then hd 6870.:)

  23. Guys, you're going on about cards that are well and truely more than his 100 dollar budget, there's a time and a place to argue semantics, don't hijack this guys thread over a pissing match. :)
  24. you........ hd 6870 is better then hd 6850 you...... and you are telling that gtx 550ti is better do you know anything dont troll

    even the hd 5770 is competing with it .......... lol :lol:
  25. answer of op question is that you can get hd 7750 or hd 6770 or gts 450 on that price.:)

    hd 7750 doesnt require any 6 pin pcie connector and more power good for low end psu.:)

    hd 6770 its littlebit better then hd 7750 in performance just the fact isthat u will need an 6 pin pcie connector.:)

    gts 450 needs pcie connector doesnt gives that much performance but you can get it in $90 even old tech.:)
  26. u should read my first post where i said 6870 i didn't said anything about 6850 ! what u are trying to say is what im trying to say. sorry teh_gerbil but i didn't said anything wrong
  27. bro!!! bro!!! bro!!! bro!!!! you are giving him wrong information what i mean to say is that the hd 6850 is better then gtx 550ti oc and hd 6870 is more better then hd 6870 and you are saying that gtx 550ti oc is better then hd 6870 huh!!! wtf is that???you are giving wrong information to op first learn all thing like all of us in toms do and then answer the question dont give wrong answer so the op will waste his money. :non:
  28. look at the benchmarks the gtx 550ti is way less in performance then hd 6870 even the oced one also the oced one is near in performance of hd 6790.
