7850 vs 6950 and game Tags: Graphics Cards Games OCZ Graphics Last response: September 13, 2012 10:34 AM in Graphics & Displays Share honeybadger23 September 13, 2012 2:05:36 AM 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.

I don't really mind power consumption as long as my PSU can handle the single card. Thank you for your input looniam.
