  1. The difference is memory and video. You really won't see much difference with the memory, but the 7850 is a batter card. I would take 8GB of memory and the 7850.

    16gb of memory won't make much of a difference at all if any. The average user only uses about 5gb. Yes, The 7850 is definately a better card and that is what will matter in games.
    Enjoy your pc!
  3. thanks guys i really appreciate your help and opinion. i will take the hd 7850. although i am more a fan of gtx series :P anyway thanks i will go with your choice.
