    Looks good, but the 7850 OCs better and can rival the GTX 580.

    I was actually looking at a 7850 but I'm more familiar with nvidia GPUs. Is there a learning curve to the AMDs?
  3. The 7xxx series is better bang for buck compared to the 5xx series.
  4. 7850 is overpriced IMO. GTX 560 Ti 448 is old tech. Get a 7870 if you can afford it
