I know some people don't like passmark but I do.
Have a nice day.
I lol'd, sounds like you're tryin' to justify your choice of going the 6850 route.
The 5850 IS the faster card and will deliver more FPS in any game / setting, theres no denying.
So OP, if its about pure performance and fps figures (which your post indicates) then go with the 5850. If you want a compromise between performance and power consumption / noise then go with the 6850 (which you can still OC). On stock clocks theres only 10% difference between those cards in terms of performance.
EDIT: I think your Phenom I might turn out to be a significant bottleneck though.Edited by toX0rz - 11/6/11 at 3:58pm
