which card would be better for a 1280x1024 screen
i want to play battlefield 3 and future games like ac3,gta 5, and black ops 2 maxxed with 4xAA
the hd 6870 or the hd 6850.
the hd 6850 is cheaper and i could probaly buy a game with that money.
i have a 200$ budget
6850 is a pretty good card they are close enough to each other that you can play any of those games at good framerates with the 6850 just about as well as with a 6870. 50fps vs 60 won't matter that much.
