More about 6850
  1. The 560 is more like a 6870, so it's faster.
  2. Matto, are you saying that the 560 i listed is better then the 6850?
  3. +1 for GTX 560. Also is there any particular reason you need 16GB of ram in your build?
  4. Sauce Im a big multi-tasker, on my previous desktop i would keep around 3 diffrent web browsers with 8 tabs each while playing Battle field 3 at the same time. And honestly The more ram the better ;)

    That is indeed what hes saying and it's true the 6870 is 560 rival not the 6850 the 6850 rival is the 460 1GB.

    You can do that with 8GB no problem. I would rather spend the extra $50 on an upgrade to a GTX 560 ti.
  8. 560 is better than 6850. 6850 consume less power than 560 http://www.hwcompare.com/11006/geforce-gtx-560-vs-radeon-hd-6850/
  9. Iron slice the 16 gb are 80 bucks, its the G. Skill ares

    +1 to that!
  11. you guys dont understan the ram is 85, to get a decent 2*4 memory modules it would cost around 45 dollars, Which would save me 40 dollars The gtx 560 is around 140 bucks im not sure if you can get a 560 ti with 180 dollars.

    The Zotac GTX 560 Ti AMP! has been on Newegg this week at $180 after rebate. There are a few others under $200 as well if you are willing to go with rebates.
  13. do newegg rebates actually work. i so i could build my build for 610 dollars.
  14. For the Zotac AMP, it looks like it's a Zotac rebate with the form available for download.

    Clocked at 950 mhz, that's one of the fastest 560 Ti's.
  15. But do rebates actually work.
  16. Worked for me. I don't see why it wouldn't. You would think there would be some complaints if there was a scam. It takes some time to process, but with MSI at least I was able to track its progress on-line.
  17. I was readin a lot of posts online about rebates not workin, and im pretty worried because if tis rebate doesnt work i will b 50 plus over my budet
