  1. for $100 you can pick up 7750. its the newest so it will run cooler and use less wattage
  2. If you have only $100 and those two cards to chose from, the 6850 would be your best option.
    Not only is it faster, it also draws less power.

    While a 7750 might be had new in this price range and it draws significantly less power, it also performs quite a bit worse than either a 5830 or 6850.

  3. 6850 if you really must buy either one of the two.

    HD6850 is more powerful than the 7750 and 5830. I'd go with that one. At $100, I think it's worth it.

    That is true but the 6850 will be significantly faster than the 7750 and the 5830.

    For $100 get the 6850 or find a good price on a new 7770.

  9. the 6770 GDDR5 is also good. I would personally love an HD 7770 though..
    This one is for 99.99 without rebates, and it performs similarly to a GTX460/560/6870 with the new drivers.
