The 6970 lightning version performs slightly higher than the 7850 power edition. The 6970 is the previous generation top card for AMD.

But, when you compare the two cards at stock they are roughly the same performance. So it depends on the price. If the 6970 is cheaper than the 7850, it's a good buy. Otherwise, price/performance the 7850 is the best.

Hope that helps :)

It helps a lot. The 7850 is cheaper than the 6970, so I'll get the 7850. The 7850 also has PCI-e 3.0, so it will increas the bandwith. Thanks for the help:) !
