Hi guys,

I just wanted to know if the Sapphire HD7850 is worth the money for my new build, baring in mind I'm only going to be using a single monitor in the setup. The other option was the XFX 6950HD 1GB for quite abit cheaper.

Thanks for the help.

The 7850 and 6950 seem to be equally matched in the gaming benchmarks. The only disadvantage associated with the 6950 is its higher power consumption. If your PSU has enough spare capacity for the 6950 then go for it.

The 6950 it is then. My power supply will be the Corsair Gaming Series 600w, so I think it should be fine.

Thanks for the fast and useful feedback!:D
