post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Yea, i have a 5850 Toxic right now. And ive found this bargain: http://www.pixmania.com/pt/pt/103048...-gb-gddr5.html
Sorry for Portuguese website, 189€ sounds rad for a 6950 right? Should i pick it up?

+1 to another 5850.

those things are beast. honestly not worth the upgrade from 5850 to 6950. maybe wait for the next gen.

if you can't find another 5850, then just save the money. it's not really worth the money in upgrade. also the 5850 is not going to sell that well so you'll be losing money for a minimal upgrade.

Find a second 5850 or wait for Southern Islands I think will be your best bet. Trust me, I am tempted to go to Micro center everyday to pick up some 6950's or 6970's lol, but its a waste of money to upgrade every generation.
