  1. Out of those three, I recommend the Sapphire Radeon 7770. It performs on-par with the 6850 (maybe a little ahead on average) at a much lower level of power consumption.

    Just FYI, it's GDDR5, not DDR5. The two are surprisingly different technologies despite such similar names and DDR5 is currently not in use (it won't be until around five to eight years from now).

    That's an outdated review. The 7770 beats the 6850 by a little with current drivers. The 7770 uses much less power and has more overclocking headroom too.
  3. Whats your budget? Id list that and someone might be able to find a card outside your list that will do better and is still in the budget. I dont know AMD cards but you wont be maxing many games on a 550
  4. I would say 660>7850>560Ti>6870>560>7770>6850>550Ti>6770
  5. so this means, i should go for HD 770? thanx guys.

    One more thing though.

    Should i go for Sapphire HD 7770; or

    HIS HD 7770 iCooler
  6. It's personal preference. Which is clocked higher, which has the longer warranty and which is cheaper?
