No, you can mix and match any video card and CPU you would like. So no worries about that.

For that price, I would either suggest a Radeon 7770 or if you're willing to stretch your budget a little more, the 7850.

brother you just hit the jackpot. not going to find a better card than this at this price. buy it and buy it now .... ( i also own one. it's awesome. )

I also own one but I personally suggest: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 7850 is slightly better than the 6950 and uses less power for it. They are both the same price, so I suggest going with the 7850.

Also, your 7770 choice is ok, but I suggest being careful with XFX as a brand, it is not known to be very reliable. The price for the 7850 is actually quite high, as my linked 7850 demonstrates.

I don't want to rain on your parade but you're smoking crack. no way in hell is a 1gig card better than a 2gig card in either of these profiles at 1900 resolution. I don't think you're smart enough to know better. I really don't.

you need to look beyond frames per second as the sole authority when choosing a graphics card. and by the way are how many ?

NONE....

not to mention the extra added benefit of the extra vram........ but of course you think you know all about that too.... ?????

**SAPPHIRE 100312-3L Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit = $179.99

or

**SAPPHIRE 100355-1GOCL Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit = $179.99

At 1080p, there is very little difference in Metro 2033 between the 1gb and the 2gb versions of the 6950, most of them only by only a few fps in the single digits. Some benchmarks (even the one that you linked) show no difference between the 1gb and the 2gb versions of the card. That is more than made up by the fact that the 7850 is simply a faster card. The same thing can be seen throughout the other games as well.

It's also difficult for me to understand you, can you please restate what you meant by "NONE..."?

All in all, both are good cards, and both are very viable, but I think that the 7850 has the advantage due to its (slightly) faster GPU.

Remember that both have 10 dollar mail in rebates. Also, yes the 7850 is the newer card.

it's been a long day for me and I don't want to argue and if I said something upsetting i apologize......... but there is more to video card performance that frames per second. the extra ram is not there for that. it's there to keep textures in the frame buffer ( video card memory ) so it doesn't have to off load to the Hard Drive causing slow ups and stutters ( the new word for it ). it's also there so you can crank up the eye candy whereas on the 1gig card you couldn't.
