5850 vs 6850 in Crysis 2 @ 1920x1080

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I was wondering by HOW MUCH there will be a difference in performance? I currently have a Sapphire 5850. I was planning out selling the card for $160, then buy one HIS 6850 for $140 and wait for a second crossfire. In the meanwhile, is the 5850 playable with smooth frame rates at 1920x1080? With AA? Without AA?

I'm running an AMD X6 1090T phenom @ 3.4 GHZ. Should I overclock it to prevent bottlenecking or is it fine?

Windows 7 64-bit
Corsair h50 cooler

corsair xms3 1333mhz 2x 4gb

asrock 870 extreme3 motherboard

and a solytech 550w power supply. Also, this PSU is running fine in my system; however, if I upgrade two 6850 later, do I have to upgrade the PSU? I was planning on the Raidmax Hybrid 730W [budget issue]. Thanks!

...

Why are you selling your 5850 for a 6850?
That's downgrading.

At 1920x1080 in DX11 I dont see you being able to play with AA or on high settings. You should be fine with medium to medium high settings.

That would go for both cards.

Crossfire you should be able to play on High settings with none to lowest AA settings. You shouldnt need to OC your processor.

5850 is better card than 6850, stick with it and if you plan on crossfire get another 5850

couple things:
1- what quality settings were you hoping to get for that resolution? and at what fps? (maybe that should be what fps did you want, then you can worry about detail settings)

2- It is really hard to say, especially on a game that isnt released yet. Unless you only plan on playing on medium settings which is all that is available right now with the leaked copy... you could try the beta out tomorrow and see for yourself.

3- isnt the 5850 arguably more powerful than the 6850?

Not by anything drastic. The 6850 is just below the 5850 performance wise. Maybe 15% less, and also is cost less which is expected.

I thought AMD changed the numbering so the 5850 is equivelant to 6950 and 5770 would be 6870???

I really didn't think it was that graphically intensive. This isn't Crysis 1 all over again.

True, but he has a 5850... and wants to sell it for 6850
