Hey, got a question.

Found an MSI 6850 for £95 inc. delivery : http://www.kikatek.com/P176216/R6850-PM2D1GD5-MSI-R6850...

Also found the 7770, on the same site for £96 : http://www.kikatek.com/P265768/GV-R777OC-1GD-2-Gigabyte...

I know that the 7770 and the 6850 trade blows very closely, so I'm asking as to which one would have the better cooler and/or better life expectancy.

Thanks in advance.

I would go with the 6850 on performance. They should both run within acceptable temperatures at stock rates and since I doubt you will be overclocking, they should have similar life expectancies.

Just to give you an extra option (ignore it if the price is too high)

HD6850 is faster, I would go with that as well.

6850 is better performance, 7770 a little better in power consumption.

Yup, looks like I'll be keeping my eye on that 6850 then. Got a fireworks display coming up, so should have some dosh soon.

Thanks guys.
