Gigabyte 7770 (900) OR MSI 6850 Tags: Graphics Cards Cooling MSI Gigabyte Graphics Last response: September 30, 2012 5:01 PM in Graphics & Displays Share MajinCry September 30, 2012 1:44:07 PM 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.

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) http://www.kikatek.com/P206649/HD-687A-ZHFC-XFX-Radeon-...
