Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Comparison by Lee
After some help.
I play Call of Duty and Warcraft and Skyrim. have a GTX 550 at the momement going to be upgrading.
I cant decide between this and a 560TI, I guess this is a little under performance against a 560TI but enough for a Â£30 difference
The 560ti does have more cores and is better to overclock. i would say that the TI version justifies the extra £30.
Good enough? by Ant
Hi there, I was wondering if I would get the most out of this card as my other specs are as follows:
AMD Phenom 9550 (2.2GHz)
DDR2 4 GB Ram
Asus M3N78 PRO Motherboard
Thank you in advance for any advice.
Your CPU will bottleneck the performance a little but the 6870 isnt a top end card so you should be fine.
? by Tomas
Right now I'm using a GTX 460 SuperClocked, would this out perform it?
See here for a comparison
Tl;DR ~ the 6850 is newer and a spot better.
Question by Naee
Hi there I am looking for a good value for money PSU for this card and a phenom2x4 840 CPU. My budget is maximum Â£40 Any ideas?
The best PSU for under £40 would probably be #48310 on super special, other than this, the 430W corsair or the 500W coolermaster are the other 2 PSU's under £40.
Dirt3 problems by JP McCann
I just wanted to add my annoyance to the list here regarding the problems recieving my free copy of Dirt 3.
I have emailed both Aria Customer support and registered and raised a ticket with XFX.com customer support.
Basically both parties are claiming its the others responsibilities. However in my opinion as Aria are the ones advertising this promotion and also the ones who have recieved my money I believe it should be them who do the chasing up and resolving of this problem. As of yet I have still recieved nothing but will update you with details if anything comes up.
BTW - The card is great but this 'other' issue has left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
Hi - if you e-mail [email protected] we should be able help you in regards to this!
