Upgrade to 6879 or wait for 7xxx - Page 3

post #21 of 22
You'll see the biggest performance increase and get the best bang for your buck by going with a 6870. At the rate SSD technology is improving and the price decreasing you'd be better off to shoot for an SSD when you build your next system with a 7xxx series card. The case will be a little cheaper as well.
