 Performance & Price by Camelgrinder

Bang for your buck this card is spot on, played the Witcher 2 on Ultra settings fine, and on high settings is smooth as silk. Worth every penny.

upgrade by patrick

Hi, I currently have an Ati hd5850 series card. Would I gain a noticeable improvement upgrading to the hd6850, or is it a bit of a sideways step. I am running an i7 2600k with 8Gb memory so I have overhead clearance with the rest of my system. using 27inch display @ 1920*1020.

Response by mohamedA
yes it would be sideways ,i believe the hd6950 would probably be a real upgrade in terms of overall performance

Question  Motherboard compatibility by Aldo

Hi, I'm thinking of getting either the hd6850 or the hd6870 as an upgrade for my trusty hd4870. Could you tell me if the 6850 or the 6870 should be compatible with an Asus P5Q Deluxe Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard please?

Thanks, not sure how to check, and really want to be sure before I order.

Answer by mohameda on Tuesday, October 18, 2011
