It is for my neice and the biggest game she play is perfect world. She has a 9600GT and it plays it just fine. Plus the 6870 is $50 more. I'm looking for a little better perfromance in a video card.
I can get a 5830 or 5850 for free too. I don't think she is ready for a 5850 for a few more yrs. Perfect World is not the demanding game.

if you can get the 5830 for free i would just go that route since it is all she needs. thats what i would do.

I'd go with the 7 series as it'll be supported longer.

3 series and even 2 series ATI cards are still supported...I don't even think that is an issue.

I've learned with siblings / family if its working fine, just leave it
Bacically I'm upgrading my 2 nephews and neice PC. My 2 nephews has a 5830 and 5850, so this is how I'll getting them for free. I'm planning on keeping either the 5830 or 5850 for a back card. I know that a 7770 is around the same performance as the 5830 and uses less power.

Give her the 5830 and send the 5850 to me, I'll pay shipping biggrin.gif But go with either the 5830 or 5850 since you can get them for free. My 5850 can blow through BF3 on high settings with steady frame rates at 1920x1080 and I haven't found a game where I have had to tone down the settings for better fps.

Well you should had said " Buy the 7770 for her. Keep the 5830 for your back up card and send me that 5850, so I can have CF 5850. I'll pay shipping."
^^ This could have work better. wink.gif

Hahaha, that does sound a lot better! But anything you get her will certainly be an improvement. My sister just had a little boy so I'm getting ready to spoil the little guy and make sure he understands the greatness of the PC.

The 7770 will probably be the best choice for long-term with it's less power-hungry and her parents won't have to pay as much when she games for hours on end biggrin.gif I know that my 5850 does kick up my power bill a bit when I run BOINC for the BGB competition.
