In terms of Video Editing which GPU would be better?
A 6850 or a 7770.
Or one priced similarly.

GPU needs to be under 450 MM according to my case specs.

if u use a software that uses openCL then go with Radeon cards
but most softwares use CUDA and it is supported by most programs.
but is suggest that u should reserch yourself on google.
by typing benchmarks and compute performance of the card in which software u r going to use

They support both. So the actual brand is not a problem.
Its Vegas Pro 12

7850 is near double the cost of a 7770
Sure no Nvidia are just as good for the money though

I'm still trying to figure out how people on here keep stating that the HD6850 and HD7770 are basically the same. They aren't. The HD6850 is faster, by 30% or more in games...due to the bus width(256-bit vs 128-bit) and makes most games look better due to the number of unified shaders (960 to 640). Here is a good link to check out both cards specs...so then you tell me which is better for gaming?

yeah
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Catalyst_12.11_P...
these are with new drivers too.
the 6850 and 7770 are almost the same.
and just bcoz it has higher specs dosent mean that it is better, video cards are not that simple.(i wish they were) :p 
like the 560 ti only has 384 CUDA cores while the 650 ti has 768,
but still the 560 ti is faster!!

i guess i will have to agree with wisecracker,
the radeons are for gaming(main purpose)
if u game on a fire pro series card, it wont be good bcoz they are not meant for that.
just like the the radeons are not meant for workstation stuff.
if gaming is not important to u then getting a fire pro is your best option.

Presumably, Vegas 12 didn't back-slide ... Looky Here

Quote:
Vegas Pro 11 is designed to take advantage of GPU acceleration for video FX, transitions, compositing, pan/crop, track motion and encoding...evaluated preview and rendering with OpenCL...




The V4900 on the gaming side is comparable to a Turks HD6570. I'm actually testing the two cards in Vegas 12 Studio right now ...

I plan to do both Gaming and Editing. A well rounded card.
My Max budget, no question about it is $155.

I was thinking of the Evga GTx 660 TI

that is not a 660 ti, thats not even a 650ti thats a 650, it is a weak card.

650 ti
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
it has a free game too :sol: 

7850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
