Keep 5850 or buy 6870 - Page 2

post #11 of 13
the rank of 68 and 58 series is that 5870>6870>5850>6850, so if you upgrade 5850 to 6870 you won't feel a lot of performance increasing, it's wasting of your money, just when you increase your budget and go for the better cards like 6950, 6970 or 560Ti, 570, 580, you will absolutely feel the happiness of upgrading the graphic card.

Keep 5850. Only AMD upgrade worthwhile is a 6950/6970 imo.
