About a week ago, i decided that the 6870 would be better for me than the 6850.
Now, i have a new dilemma.

This is the 6870 i was looking at:

As i continue to look through TD, i noticed that the OC 7770's are at a similar price, but I don't know how well they perform.

Here are some that i was looking for (IN order)

1. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...
(Highest OC of the Dual fans, Double D edition)

2. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...
(Single Fan, Highest Overall Clock)

3. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...
(OC, Dual fans)

To my understanding, the 7770 is newer, but has fewer SPU and a smaller memory interface.

Not my MOBO only supports PCI-E 2.0.

So which GPU is better, the 6870 or the 7770 OC'd?

And also, how much power will those GPU's use? I know the base 7770 uses less power than the 6770, but how much more power will the dual fans and OC require? I only have 2 18A 12v Rails (CM EP+ 600 watt)

Thanks!

Why not get a 6870 that is better stock clock and overclock that so it is way better than an overclocked 7770.

Forgot to mention i dont feel comfortable OC, either i buy OC or keep it at stock.

And true, my friend offerd to buy Shogun for 20 + a Diablo guest pass.

And how many Amps does that 6870 need? It says its Pre-Oced but thr speeds look the same. Most people say my PSU can easily run one but the quality isnt the best so idk
