Not exactly familiar with the AMD FX, but I have a 1080p monitor, and 16GB memory. so yes, maybe the 6850 might do best, it is possible that it might do better on your rig than mine.

Yeah i just want the best performance out of it i want it to work really good without any issues make me happy
post #6 of 14
Get the 6850 in my opinion, it's more powerful in gaming, the 7770 might be a good idea if you're looking for low power consumption, or something similar.

BTW, if you want a 6850, I've got a Sapphire one I'm willing to sell or trade, PM me if you're interested.
post #7 of 14
both those cards trade blows, with the 6850 coming on top in only a few games.
if they are the same price, i would get the 6850 since its a bit faster.

1080p wont be a problem, Im running 3648x900 resolution on a single HD6850 with NBA2k12 and Dirt3 at very high settings.
