    The 5850 costs the same and it's faster.

    I'm still disappointed that you will be buying from Amazon. Almost like you are throwing our help in our faces.

    eww. that is a garbage card. get the 6870 or 6950

    if you didnt know amd changed the naming for their cards

    the 6850 is now replacing the 5750

    the 6870 replaces the 5770 and its about 20% faster as well

    6950 replaces the 5850

    and the 6970 replaces the 5870 but fails

    Soon the 6990 will replace the 5970

    nvidiaintelftw,

    You have no clue what you are talking about. The 6850 is not rubbish, it pisses all over the 5750. The 6850 is the same speed as the GTX 460 1GB. Does that mean the GTX 460 1GB is rubbish?

    Turn your PC off please!

    okay Dent1 but if you havent realized it yet. he wants to do 3d. and neither the 460 and 6850 strong enough to do that well.

    haven't you realise that you called a upper-midrange card such as the 6850 garbage?

    I consider it lower mid end. and a 6870 the upper mid end.

    He stated in his other thread that he's from Ireland, so I don't know why he's buying from Amazon. Amazon is the last place to look for PC components, it's an English company so he'll have to pay a lot in shipping for all those parts, and we have Komplett over here which is our equivalent to Newegg. Most of the latest components can be found here at the lowest prices in the country and they have free shipping.

    It's the best place to go for buying PC components online, buying off Amazon is like buying from Argos or PC World.
     
    MxPhenom 216 and Dent1 say thanks.

    and dave amazon is cheaper than komplett, and anyway i can return the faulty goods back to amazon anyway, and the postage is free to ireland if u pay over 25

    anyway i might do crossfire with the onboard 4290 on the motherboard with the 6850 to make it even better.

    You can also return faulty products to Komplett and you can also return items if you don't want them, even if you've opened it, it just has to be within 30 days of receiving it. Just make sure to keep the packaging intact.

    Are you not part of Northern Ireland?

    Ebuyer and Dabs both do FREE super saver delivery to the United Kingdom.

    To do crossfire you need TWO Physical cards of the same generation. i.e. you would need TWO 6850s to crossfire effectively.

    The 4290 only has enough horse power to render a movie, so it will not improve anything even if your wacky crossfire idea was possible.
