post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi so its almost christmas and my friend has a really crappy gpu and can barely run games up to 60fps and i want to buy him a video card and i was deciding on the 7770 or 7850. he plays a lot of cs go, dota 2, and league of legends with me. which card is better for those mid range games?

7770 would be ideal for him.

use slickdeals.

springing for a 7850 is worth the extra cash

Otherwise you should be able to pick up a 7770 on the cheap, $85 usd

Definitely 7850. More power is always better if you can afford it.
