Ordered PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 2GB, but got Radeon HD 6950 2GB.

Hi.

So in early 2012, I bought a pc in parts. This was a set put together by the store I bought it from. In the specification it said that I would get:

PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 PCI-Express 3.0, 1xDL-DVI-I, native-HDMI, 2xmini-DisplayPort

But instead I got:

XFX Radeon HD 6950 PCI Express 2.1 2GB GDDR5.

I've been looking at some benchmark tests, but I'm a litle confused about the different versions of the HD 7850.
Is the one I listed the one called the PCS+ edition?

I did'nt think anything of this at the time of purchase. I just figured the one listed in my order was outdated or something.

So my question is: Did they screw me over?

  1. Where did you but it? You will want the 7850, it is a faster card.

    Thanks for your advice. I just sent them an e-mail explaining the situation.
    They are usually pretty reasonable, so fingers crossed. I will post the outcome here.
