yeah i know, but hed be buying a 6770 for 130 (which is a rebranded 5770 with better power consumption) so im still helping him. and hes buying his july so the 7770 and the 6870 wont be on sale anymore... and im building it for him, so its the least he can do
and sushant2688, i would but the only reason i can get this 6870 is because its a shell shocker today, otherwise itd be too much because im limited on cash.
and thanks for the link, harsh60, very informative
EDIT: so should i buy the 6870 on newegg shell shocker today, or should i wait for a better deal? and how much longer will the 6870 last compared to the 5770? one year?
