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.

At $100, I think it's worth it. ish416 a b U Graphics card February 11, 2013 12:58:04 PM alvine said:for $100 you can pick up 7750. its the newest so it will run cooler and use less wattage 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.

This one is for 99.99 without rebates, and it performs similarly to a GTX460/560/6870 with the new drivers. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
