Oops i thought he said the 6950 , i appologise . Yes 6850 and 5850 are a much better comparison . Id still go with the 5850 for the raw power it has over the cheaper feeling 68XX cards .

EDIT: If you mean it was meant to take the place of the 5770 in AMD's lineup, then you are correct.
I think thats what i got confused with. **** now i got my ass flamed off lol

6950 is the new 5850 .
6970 is the new 5870 .

the 68XX are a remake of the 57XX series , 5770's are cheap they are nothing like a $400 6950

cant believe you would say something like that .

Crossfired 5770's are a bit quicker or slower than a 5870, depending on the game.
I think your confused. i remember hearing the whole marketing thing of how the 6850'S were supposed to replace the 5770's.. why are you talking about 6950's? i was talking about 6850 and 5770's..

you can buy 6950 and will try to 6970 but another optıon and i think its the best,you can buy 2x6870 and will do crossfire and already have get better performance than single 6970...

6870 230-250$ atm

6970 380-400$

6870 still better for price/performance

I'm going to say the Radeon 6850 is the perfect upgrade here. It should work with the existing power supply, and be much faster than the 5770 currently in the system. It also beats the 5850, and can be had for a reasonable price.

More card than that, and you'll probably need a new power supply to go with it. If you're only playing WoW and SC2, spending money on a Radeon 69xx will be overkill.
