7770. Even though the 6850 has a higher memory bandwidth. the 7770 is better

It seems as drivers move forward the 7770 keeps getting better and the 6850 is dead in the water, yes it has more brute strength but the 7770 is more about refinement

Yea, but don't let the memory bandwidth fool you when purchasing a video card, some cards with lower band widths perform higher than cards with a slightly higher bandwidth but different chip

Only suggestion I have is get a cheaper motherboard unless you really want the features. There is not AN overclock in your future and if you are not using it for tasks beyond gaming an H61 will work fine

SATA3 support and other such features can matter, especially in the future if you don't upgrade often, so H67/H77 should at least be thought about before making such a decision.

I bought the Sapphire 6850 1gb 256bit about a month ago and while it OC's very nicely, I should have gone with the Sapphire Vapor-X 7770. As already mentioned, the 7770's keep getting better. Not to mention it's a current gen card, the 6000 series was last gen. I fell for the memory bandwidth.

If you look at the benchmarks you'll see that the they trade blows back and forth BUT those are with the old drivers, the 7770 has gotten faster since then. Plus the Vapor-X is (IMO) the best factory cooler.

The regular Sapphire OC 7770 has a slightly superior factory overclock, but an inferior cooler.
