Hello everybody. I was wondering if I should buy a 7850 or get a secondhand 6950 2gb for 150 and buy borderlands 2. I have an ocz modular 500w PSU. Or is it worth it to just purchase a 7870 to last me longer? Thank you again.

the 7850 is a great card for the price and when overclocked can provide similar performance to a stock 7870.

Benchmarks are very close from my google searching. I don't really mind power consumption as long as my PSU can handle the single card. Thank you for your input looniam.

I would go with the 7850, it uses less power. It would be able to run on your power supply while putting less stress on it.

HD7850 is a great card, it does everything you want it do do @ 1080p!

Ditto, all of a sudden the HD7870 is the best value for money card in the market.
