Which 7850 is best?

Hello everyone. The replies to my last thread led me to the conclusion that I need a Radeon HD 7850.

Now my problem is finding the best one.

I've narrowed my findings down to three different cards. You can see the Newegg comparison of themhere.

Which one is the best choice?

P.S. I'm also upgrading my power supply to a 600-watt... can anyone find me a 600-watt power supply that will do good, and is priced at or under $69.99? (I found a Corsair 600-watt, and unless someone can find a better one (or cheaper one that is equal), I'll be getting it).

  2. out of your choices this is the best http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102984 but there are better 7850 they cost more though and no your not going to find a cheaper 600Watt PSU but a 7850 would work fine with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093

    Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC 2GB Graphics Card Review
    Quote:
    With the recent launch of the 7800 series, it was no surprise that AMD’s partners were going to start pumping out custom cards and we knew for a fact that Sapphire would be one of the first on this bandwagon. They had the choice of developing a card with a custom PCB, custom cooler or factory overclock.

    Now Sapphire could have done any one of these three major things, but decided to lead the market, and not follow it, by doing all of the above. We saw a fantastic card with great performance due to the overclock and an equally impressive cooler which is quiet and keeps temperatures to a minimum. The cooler has a good design to it, and incorporates a dual fan design which allows for the lowest noise output possible while giving a good amount of airflow across the card.
  4. @xtreme5 Thanks... I'll probably end up going with that combo? Now one question... will that GPU and PSU, along with this:

    AMD A6-3650
    Patriot 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Memory

    Play Left 4 Dead (1 & 2), Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops 2, Hitman: Absolution, GTA V, and maybe some BF3 and a little Fallout (3 and NV) on High settings? And think I can push that Sapphire 7850's core clock up to 1,000 MHz?

    @bigcyco1 I was going with a 600w minimum so I won't have to worry about upgrading it (well, hopefully) when I buy a new GPU later on. Oh, and can you answer the questions I asked xtreme5 too?

    I'm sorry if my last question sounds stupid, but I'm not really that knowledgeable on OC.
  5. yes, you can put them together without any problems.
    good luck!
  6. Wait... does that mean I can get those settings on High and OC it to 1GHz core clock?
  7. yeah.
  8. sapphire for sure
    but wait why are you going with such alow end processor
    it will choke on gpu intensive games such as gta v and bottleneck your graphic card
    i suggest getting abetter processor

    I know that. Unfortunately, I cannot afford both a new CPU AND GPU. And since I'm relying on my APU's integrated GFX, I cannot upgrade my CPU until I get a GPU.

    I plan on getting the i5 3570k and a new mobo later.

    EDIT: Thanks xtreme5! Best answer. Can't wait to get this in!

    :pfff:
    a Llano is nothing more than a tweeted out athlon II with a decent gpu mashed together.
