  1. 7870 rams 7850 by a distance.
    Get 7870.
  2. The difference in price between the two cards would definitely make the 7870 the sane choice. The 7870 eats 7850 alive.

    Just now saw that. Don't take that card.
    You'll face problems for sure.
    And 7870 is a way better choice.
  4. The 7870 is faster of course.I would not buy a 7850 (second hand) these days.It's not a bad choice rather risky though.I just would not go that route.If i had a choice to pick between the two.
