APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: First week of July BUDGET RANGE: Up to 200€.

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Will be using it for gaming. Would like to play on the highest settings but 4850 is just not doing it with new games. I play all kinds of games from Battlefield 3 to RTS and RPG.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: At the moment I am running a ATI H4850 and a 625W PSU.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Coming soon

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: No need for a website.

PARTS PREFERENCES: I would prefer an ATI card, because they have never let me down.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: / Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: At the moment I am running on a 1280x1024 but might upgrade to something bigger in the nea future.

I already had a look at it and saw that in my price range there is only the hd6870 and wasn´t sure if it is a big enough jump.

Is there a reason to spend an extra 75$ and get the 7850 over the 6870?

Between the 6870 and 7850, definitely.

yes there is an reason the hd 7850 is very well in overclocking bang for the buck,once oced can go past through the gtx 570 and can reach littlebit closer to gtx 580.:)
