the first card is really good for the price, an evga is a great brand, an these cards run great in SLI if he wants to get another 1 later on down the road,

the 2nd card i would really suggest, i have the 6850 an it pulls BF3 really good on high, so i would suggest saving up 20 more dollars an getting the 6870, thats just my 2 cents.

the links are just so u can get an idea how the cards are.

yah 6870 is to much he don't want nothing to powerful right now and the 550ti i feel is not worth it when i can ge the 6790 at same price with more power. i only put 6850 up there at it was on sale for 140.

personally i dont see why for 20 more dollars he wouldnt want to go with a 6870, that single card will run all games very decent an he can crossfire in the future for a super great performance. but the 6850 is a superb card for the price an just running 1 is great, but if you crossfire it later on, he will get the performance of a 6950 thumb.gif

like i said i have a xfx 6850 dual fan edition an i love the card, an it does very well for the price. u should seriously have your friend consider the 6850 or 6870.

well i had the 6850 before and i know it is a great card and to go 6870 in candad cheapest i found was 170-180 and last night found out he only wants to spend 150 for psu and card so i was looking a the 550ti now as it can be found 110 and a gd 500 watt psu for 50 adn later when he does his board he will add another gpu or get a 2gb so what card is worth it for the 100 price range? is the 6770 or the 550ti worth it

6770 is a rebranded 5770... And a "good" 500w for 50 loonies? Antec NeoEco I hope?
The 5770/6770 is a decent card, it sucks in DX11 tho, the 550Ti is pretty similar in performance, unless it's in DX11, in which case the extra tesselators in the 550Ti win out.
Either card is a good choice, he'd be happy with either.

i kno the xfx 5770 is a beast of a card an performs decent in crossfire, some have issues some dont, so if he does want to crossfire them down the road that would be good. if he has an amd cpu i would get the 5770, an if he has intel cpu, i would go with 550ti which is also good in sli. it comes down 2 whatever brand he wants to go with.
