Sorry the page is in finnish, but I hope you can understand at least something
As you can see I could get the 6950 2gb for 189€, original price 260€ which I think is a really good deal.
But! there also is 7850 1gb. For 175€, with Sniper Elite v2 game included in the package!
The game is not so important, but is smarter to buy the 7850 or the 6950?
On that page they say that 6950 2gb is about the same perfomance as 7850 2gb.
But is it really?
I found that back when Crysis came out, running at 1600 res or above having more than 1gig of vram was better. Of course hardware has changed since then ( processors, etc. ) but any time i run 1gig cards, especially with DX10 and DX11 and tessellation......... you figure it out.
i have 2 6950 2G cards,playing BF3 my VRAM will hit as high as about 1.7G,But with that being said,the 7850 is the newer card and I believe less power consumption and heat as well.And also it was just announced AMD is doing another price cut in a week or so.
