Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 TOXIC 1GB GDDR5 - refurbished+missing all accessories $65 Asus ENGTX560 Ti DirectCU II GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB - opened box+includes all accessores $130 Which one do you think I should get? should I risk buying the cheaper refurbished card and save money for a high end card later on, or should I just get the gtx 560 ti.

Otherwise, the GTX 560 Ti will outperform it. esrever a c 92 U Graphics card July 21, 2012 9:28:34 AM the 5850 is probably the better buy for those prices, its only 20% slower than the 560 ti so its probably not worth the upgrade to the 560 ti for 2x the price.

Don't go for the refurbished card.... not a good idea , we might see you more often here with BSODs after that card. I wouldn't go for it even if it was free.
