More about which
  1. The 6850 has better performance and is generally cheaper too. The 7770 uses less power.
  2. The 6850 is better but it is NOT cheaper. I just bought a 7770 instead of a 6850 because I really didn't even have the $105 that I got my GPU for. A 6850 is worth the extra cash though, if you have it.
  3. Suppose I'll mention that yes the 7770 does indeed use less power meaning less heat than a 6850 would generate. I have MSI's most generic 7770 and it runs at a cool 50C playing any game on any settings. A more expensive 7770 would probably run cooler, but you don't really need it.
  4. Well, it was cheaper when the 7770 came out, which was the last time I checked xD
  5. wait a moment collect money to buy HD 7850
  6. if you can't afford the HD 7850, the HD 6850 is a better performer than the HD 7770
