More about 6850
  1. The 6850 is faster, but I want to make sure you are using a good enough power supply first.
  2. 6850, the 6850 vs GTX 550ti discussion had been discussed numerous time already, if you kind enough to search for old thread.
  3. 6850 hands down
  4. ^ lol you beat me to it

    +1

    $20 more and you can get a HD 6870....
  6. This is my answer in an identical thread from yesterday:

    Yes, the 6850 is definitely the better choice. See benchmarks here: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/539?vs=541

    I note however that the 6850 is going for about $135 post-rebate. For $15 extra post-rebate, you can get a 6870, which is a substantial upgrade, especially for a game like BF3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814150521 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814161389 . See benchmarks here: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/539?vs=540 .

    You could also consider the GTX 560, which is about $145 post-rebate for some models. It will have slightly better BF3 performance than the 6870 and significantly better than the 6850, though I still think the 6870 is the better overall card.

    So my overall answer: get the 6870.
  7. beat ya to it... :p
    (joking.)

    I also like the GTX 560 as second option to the HD 6870.
  8. Haha, you did. But the more people OP hears it from, the better.
  9. true.
    most of the times...
  10. Thanks to all..i will go for the hd 6870!!!:)
  11. win-win...
    HD 6870.
    I called it... ;)
  12. Just to make sure, do you have the power supply to run the card? I'd hate to hurt the reputation of this site by recommending something to someone only to have them come back and say it doesnt work. Cover all the bases the first time.
