Hey, Mike2012. Well I currently have an HD 7750. But now, I'm saving up for a new card and a new power supply.

Now for around $190, I can get the MSI R7770 and a Corsair CX Series CX500m power supply.

However, if I get the HD 7850, I'll probably have to spend around $280. Not to mention the fact that I want to have a little money left over for food, going out and that sort of stuff.

So is there a drastic difference between the HD 7770 and the HD 7850? Also, if I just get the HD 7770, will there be a noticeable improvement in gaming performance?

Not really worth it to upgrade form a 7750 to 7770. Performance is better but not much. Thee 7770 and 7850 is NIGHT and DAY. It's like comparing a supercar to an old 1900s slow car. The 7850 is so much better and the difference is SIGNIFICANT.

So you would say that it's worth it for the extra 2 weeks of saving up?

Thanks, I'll probably just save up a little longer for the HD 7850 then.

Make sure it's a 2gb version and not the 1gb card. A bit of performance difference so just watch out for that. Sometimes you can snag a 7870 for the price of a 7850 which is insane (Black Friday, Christmas).

If you're saving that much extra - go a little farther for the HD7870.

i snagged my 7850 for the price of the 7770 :) 

The 7770 is about the 6850 while the 7850 is about a 6950 if that is any indication
