the 6950 uses way more power, so make sure your power supply is good. i would still go for the 7770 for its lower power usage.

A HD 7850 can be had for $175, which is substantially cheaper than the 6950, almost on par price with the HD 6850.

It performs BETTER than the HD 6950, has 2GB of VRAM and consumes less power.

do you plan on getting a better monitor soon? if not i wouldn't get anything stronger than the 7770.

if you do plan on going to a higher resolution, the 7850 would be a nice choice.

at that resolution, you should be able to run whatever you like. if you decide to go 1080p or higher with ultra settings, then you'll start having issues.

a b U Graphics card
November 17, 2012 6:04:46 PM

yes, and now you are going backwards, stick with a 7xxx series. if u want a stronger card than the 7770, get the 7850.

I have gtx 560 TI oced with profile 5 @ 975 / 2280

Yeah that's really good. Get the Asus / Sapphire version.

Just 1 Q . Budget ?
a b U Graphics card
November 17, 2012 6:17:16 PM

That's good but its an old gen card and draws 197W that mean's higher bill.
a b U Graphics card
November 17, 2012 6:20:22 PM

so just for a hd 7850 for 199 dollars
a b U Graphics card
November 17, 2012 6:23:30 PM

Yes .HD 7850 is faster in every game. Uses half the power. HD 7850 is also faster in compute using OpenCL.

So that will do all the job u need.

P.S A personal advice.

The best visual upgrade u can do is upgradin to 1080P.I will do it soon and than SLI my card :)

a b U Graphics card
November 17, 2012 6:27:19 PM

First up ur monitor. And for christams get a GPU smth like Hd 7950/70

Gtx 670/80

BF3 running at your resolution with a bad video card, it still runs it at high. I would say your processor is important for BF3.

3570k and HD 7770 = Ultra at 1920x1080
