Its a great card you will be very happy with it , and performance is great in Xfire if you ever chose to go down that road
Note though , if you plan on playing BF bad company , Do not use the newest afterburner softwear ( cant unlock volts ) As it cause's crash's in game. Dont know if 11.6 Fixed this as im on 11.5
I plan on playing BF 3 for sure, but not BF bad company. Actually I am doing this upgrade with BF 3 in mind.
The 6850 seems a solid performer but since the MSI R6850 is $150, I am leaning more towards the ZOTAC GTX 460 1GB
now since it's $120 and will overclock well.
Both cards seem on par even with overclocking, so with the ZOTAC GTX 460 1GB being $30 cheaper, it's looking like a better option unless it's not that much of an upgrade above an overclocked 5770 (sig).Edited by xsever - 6/22/11 at 10:36am
