Where are you XFX 7850? and N00b Help.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've been looking to upgrade my video card for awhile now. I'm currently using an Sapphire 6670 1GB. My budget was to be near $200. I did some research and I think that the best price per performance (and this is as far out of my budget that I am willing to go) would be to get a 7850 which is around $250. Do you guys agree, or have any better suggestions?

Anyways, if you guys think I should get a 7850, That brings up another problem. I want a silent one that also looks nice. I really am interested in the XFX double D Black Edition version but I can't find it anywhere. I've seen unboxings of it, such as this one, but I cant find a place to buy them. I read in the comments about how the card isn't released yet, but they're about a month old, just like the video. I was wondering if anyone had any information on it.

Specs:
AMD 1090T @ 4Ghz
Hyper 212+
Gigabyte 970A-UD3
8 GB Ram @1600 Mhz
550w Rosewill Hive

Thanks for reading thumb.gif

Hey man I'm in the same boat as you. I have seen many reviews of the XFX 7850 Double D Black Edition but I can't find it anywhere. It seems like all the other versions of this card are out, including the 7870 Double D Black, so I don't understand why this one isn't. Def seems like the best 7850 out there, looks awesome and is just at the top end of my price range. Is there a release date for it? If there is why is there no website offering pre-order, newegg. I even emailed XFX over a week ago but have yet to receive a response. So any information anyone could provide would be primo.

No :/ I think I might end up getting the sapphire version, it's like $20-30 cheaper and only uses six pin connector, I'm pretty sure the XFX one uses two.

The XFX is souped up a little more. Core clock of the XFX is 975 MHz the sapphire is 920. From the reviews I read though the sapphire is def a top notch card. The gigabyte is right up there too.

We shipped Newegg more 7800 series cards. It should be back in stock within the next couple of days.

Well Mr. XFX Tech. Can you answer this question, if you shipped Newegg more 7800 cards, were there any 7850 Double D Black Editions in that shipment? And if not could you please tell me where I could buy one since they seem to not exist in any store

Thanx
