AMD Radeon HD 6850 or AMD Radeon HD 5770

Well, my only question is what is better the AMD Radeon HD 6850 or AMD Radeon HD 5770?

Through my research I found that these two are very good with coping with the new games AND at a pric range of under £120.

Unless there is something better with a low price, which one should I buy?

  1. 6850 is better by a good margin and the best for its price the 6870 is better and stil under £120 see http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/MSI+Radeon+HD+6870+OC+1024MB+GDDR5+PCI-Express+Graphics+Card+?productId=47265 you may find one cheaper if you shop around.

    and any others you find the offers they have vary quickly.
  2. The 6850 will perform noticeably better then a 5770 for gaming. Especially at higher resolutions due to an increased memory bandwidth (6850-256bit, 5770-128bit). It also will draw less power, generate less heat and run more quietly. A 6870 is also a good choice to look into for slightly improved performance and more overclocking headroom.

    What is the rest of your system?
  3. These are just numbers, but I personally love this site for getting a rough idea of how cards stack up. http://www.hwcompare.com/5917/radeon-hd-5770-vs-radeon-hd-6850/

    I agree with the others here, 6850 gets my vote as well.
