Any thoughts?

  1. What are you full system specs?(CPU,RAM,PSU,etc.)

    Well the 6770 is just about the best performing card for your price range.If you can I would really suggest shelling out and extra €10-€15 for a 6850.It's cost to performance ratio is right on and it would be the best bang for your buck.

    Here's one for €102 but it's only got 1 left in stock.

    Here's another for €109
  2. This is my current pc config
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2Ghz
    Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L/USB3
    Memory: Kingston 12GB DDR3
    HDD: Segate 320GB
    PSU: SeaSonic 330W
  3. Your CPU can handle a MUCH better graphics card, but your Power Supply can't.

    Unless you're playing older games, or current games on LOW quality you'll have to invest in a new graphics card AND power supply.

    Personally, I'd buy an HD7xxx or GTX6xx (when they come out) that meets or exceeds the performance of an HD6870.

    There are quite a few games that are fun to play and run on older, or lower performing graphics (Deus Ex #1, Sam & Max etc) but I'd play a DEMO first before buying.

    There are TWO things to consider when purchasing a power supply:
    #1. Overall Wattage (use an online calculator)
    #2. The AMPS used by the graphics card (+12V rail or combined rails)

    For example:
    Let's say you bought a graphics card (you need to Google the AMPS) and it required 32Amps, and the online calculator said you need at least a 550Watt PSU.

    I recommend at least a 650Watt PSU that supplies at least 40Amps on the +12V rail (or combined rail).
  4. Buying a used card will allow you to get more for your money. I got a 4870x2 for $80 US a few weeks ago.
