More about 6990
  1. because i want play gta 4, bf3, l4d2,homefront

    on med or high but i cant though out what gpu to get
  2. you don't need 6990 for that resolution.6870 will max out everything ultra.
    and yes your cpu will bottleneck a 6990.
  3. you just need a good hd 7770 to max out all games at that resolution

  4. what nvidia card has the same performce
  5. no nvidia card can currently match a hd 7770 @ the same price point.
    the closest is a gtx 550ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

    A PCI 3.0 card is backwards compatible with PCI 2.0 slots.
  15. i know it backwards compatible but i dont want to get a 3.0 pcie gpu
  16. There isn't any logical reason to discard a newer generation GPU on the basis that it is PCI 3.0.

    what about HD 6870 almost neck to neck with GTX470 but 6870 is bit better at $204 after rebate $184.

    see the bench HD 6870 vs GTX 470.

    a massive drop in performance with going from HD 6870 to HD 6850,
    have a look again HD 6870 vs HD 6850.

    ^This is silly.

    I say go with a GHz edition of a 7770 card.

    AMD
    Here's a great 7770:

    Even better, a 6870:

    NVIDIA:
    GTX 550Ti(wouldn't recommend it, 7770 is a way better value):

    GTX 560(Such a great card AND beautiful to look at):

    I have the same processor, and my 6870 doesn't bottleneck at all.

    I told him he'd get a bottleneck with the 6950, he refused to buy it, now he goes with an even more powerful card like GTX 570 that will bottleneck even more.

    I just stopped posting after that.
  45. so the gtx 570 will be bottleneck
  46. since it bottleneck i might just go with hd 6870
