if i can stretch it out more I will try, other than that im going to go for the dual fan Sapphire.
Yeah, I'd do it man. It's a few dollars difference anyway. Might as well get the best one after all.
I did a somewhat similar upgrade path as you, Alien, except I went from a single 4850 512mb to the 6870 1gb. You can definitely tell the difference, especially with that extra vram!
im trying to do my best at selling these 4850s ASAP so i can put the cash towards the Gigabyte card.
The problem there f22 is that coming from a dual gpu setup. Food for thought; gtx460 stock 720 core feels the saame as g92 gts sli (which is on par to your 4850s). 6850 is on par to a gtx460. Just mentioning it.
Woot! im able to get a 6870 if the Gigabyte is still there im grabbing that card, if not then the Sapphire dual fan is my next choice. Am selling my 4850s for $50 a piece shortly too
you need your tech hit... i can understand that... well...
around 30-60fps in fav games... check
add another in a few months when they're cheap... check
have fun man...
and im slowly getting ready to go pick up my 6870 should be back in an hour or two
I am soooo happy with this card BF3 runs all high with 2x MSAA and 4x AF @ a solid 60-70 fps.
6870 is a great card. I have an xfx one. Runs everything great on 1 monitor. However I will be looking to upgrade mine as it doesnt cut it for eyefinity.
6870 or GTX 560 core448 if you can find one that's cheap enough.
you should read the whole thread. he already bought a 6870
