  1. The PSU will be fine if you intend to keep a single GPU setup.

    As far as playing FC3 with those boards, take a look at some benches from Techspot.com (Page 1: Setup, Page 2: Benches with high quality settings). You can decide if the 6870 is worth it for the free game.

    What would you recommend, I think I will go with the Radeon 6870, What would you choose in this situation
  3. If you can get this xfx hd 7850 $162 after rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150642
    It's probably not much more than the 6870 and it comes with FC3.
  4. 6800 series are old news. Get a 7800 series.

    I was sticking to ebay to keep things in budget and this was the one I was looking at. http://www.ebay.com/itm/XFX-AMD-Radeon-HD-6850-HD-685X-ZNFC-1-GB-GDDR5-and-FAR-CRY-3-Free-/221166655895?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item337e8f5997
    OR
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/XFX-AMD-Radeon-HD-6870-HD-687A-ZNFC-1-GB-GDDR5-PCI-E-x16-Graphics-Card-/181046444196?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item2a273580a4
    So I cant really go that way in a 130$ budget. :ouch:

    most 6870s are only 1GB. You can get a 1GB 7850 for $150 after rebate, which is about what a 6870 costs.
