I have a 6870 so you should get one too and the sticker on mine looks cool lol

i just figured out how to use my card properly so it runs cool and I always get good fps (i got 22 inch hd monitor and on my 60+ inch or w/e TV I bought last year (for like 2k bucks... freaking Sony)

Can HD6870 run all games maxed out on a 21.5 inch monitor ?
please respond

idk... lol
I think it depends on ur resolution but it does well on both my TV (weird resolution like 2500 something by something somethign) and my monitor (1920x1080).

I get 60 fps in LoL, WoW (drops to like 45 minimum in intense raid situations like fire aoe), and ME2

When it comes to games like heavily modded Crysis, Crysis 2 Dx11 and metro, I would have to go with no...

Games like SC2, BFBC2, and such, I would say that it would come close...

It's all dependent upon your interpretation of max of maxed out...

Seems likes you've made up you mind to get the 6870. Which is a great choice I started out with the build I'm going to get soon with 2 550 ti's and I did some research and found out they are awful and I moved to a pair of 6870's. (now im at dual 6950's -_- this is a really great way to burn money)
it works

I say you should change the comparison to 6870s or 460/560s. That's a more equal match.

Otherwise, go with the 6870, kicks the **** out of the 550Ti.
