My budget is <$130 and Im really undecided in what to get. I am seeing an amazing deal with a few 6850's

and
http://www.amazon.com/MSI-CrossFireX-Eyefinity-R6850-PM...

I also am interested in the 7770
http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graph...

Can you look at the links and tell me which i should get?
I have a Omega 800W PSU 35A on the 12V rail, with a soon be be overclocked 1045T

650ti is a better option coming in at $140 before a $15 MIR

The 7770 is quite a bit cheaper though, $115 before a $15 MIR for a decent one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

an 10% factory OC 7770 is $125 with a $15 mir for roughly 10% cost more (reviews show it scaling in performnace by 8%

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

Here is review where you can compare a 650ti to a 7770 (the main 65oti in te article is an oc one so outside of budget)

The $120 6850, the 7770 and the 650ti are all really close in terms of price/perf with the 6850 gaining at higher resolutions (where all the cards ar unplayable anyways).

I would not grab the 6850 since its betweent the two cards in pricing and perf but will less likey have less driver priority and uses more power. It would be useful in cf for higher resolutions due to its higher bandwidth.

I would grab the 7770 for the cheapest option, 650ti for best performance and the 6850 only if you don't mind the heat/power andreduced driver support (eventually). The 6850 has the best price/perf though if you don't count MIR (which has mixed results and requires a mailing cost) so take that into consideration.

^ don't get the 1.1ghz gigabyte, there were complaints about the OC failing, dead cards and stuffs which is why there is rev.2 for the gigabyte

Thanks for that warning :)  I cant use rebates where i live so ill go with the sapphire 7770. My max res also is 1680x1050 so the 7770 as u said makes more sense
