Anyway, with that computer, I would recommend both a power supply upgrade and a new video card. You can get a Radeon HD6850 and a new power supply for just about that price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

TheOnlyDavid August 16, 2012 10:49:57 PM Yes, I do have a HP Pavilion, and I was wondering what's better, the Radeon 6850 or 6870, also what company? XFX or Sapphire? GabZDK August 16, 2012 11:20:53 PM Talking about video cards names bigger is better, so the 6870 is better than the 6850 and the 6850 is better than the 6770 Deemo13 a c 164 U Graphics card a b ) Power supply a b V Motherboard August 16, 2012 11:48:33 PM The 6870 is faster than the 6850, but if you want to shell out for the 6870 make sure to get a new power supply.

Yes I know to get a better power supply, but what company should I get? Not the power supply company, I'm talking about the graphics card company. XFX, Sapphire or HIS? dyc4ha August 16, 2012 11:58:47 PM TheOnlyDavid said:Yes I know to get a better power supply, but what company should I get? Not the power supply company, I'm talking about the graphics card company. XFX, Sapphire or HIS? Whichever has the better deal really, they are all decent. I dont think 1 company has a significantly lower RMA rate over the other.

Deemo13 a c 164 U Graphics card a b ) Power supply a b V Motherboard August 17, 2012 8:32:02 AM The GTX560 gives close to the exact same performance as the 6870. And they are all compatible.
