If you are at 1080p or lower then this card will definatly be a good choice. for around $30-$40 more US dollars you can get a 7870 (not sure of your currency), but this would be a nice performance increase over the 7850, and both cards are superior to the 6870. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/549?vs=548
Thanks guys i was thinking about getting the 7850 then. Is it worth paying the extra for the 7870 though? And what would the best deal for money be to get and company to buy from.. sapphire, xfx, msi.. etc?
I think the 7870 is a bit too much for my budget.. the cheapest i can found is like £200+
if you are not overclocking, and your build has decent ventilation, a single fan will work fine. As for the manufacturer look at rebates, most of the time its not much of a difference in them, i have a powercolor 6870 and it runs great. depending on prices, for $30-$40 more i would buy the 7870 but i think its 50 more of your currency.
