5850 vs 6850 in Crysis 2 @ 1920x1080 - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Thread Starter 
Oh, sorry about not being clear. If I sell my 5850 for $160 then I will buy two 6850 and crossfire them. Basically is it worth it? I'm hoping to play highest setting with some AA? I just want it smooth and maybe a tinnnny lag during big battles (lol).

Is there anything that can beat two 6850 under $280 at 1920x1080 for crysis 2?

To answer...Yes, it will be worth it compared to a single 5850.

You should be able to play at the highest resolution and high settings, not ultra high, but high. AA I have no idea...Maybe 2x or 4x at best.

I should be able to play at which card? However, If I do get the two 6850, I cannot get two at the same time. So I'll be only play one 6850. Big changes and improvements until the second guy comes in?

@ M0E...
got ya... I was saying that from what I understood originally that he wanted to get rid of a superior card for a lower end card.

@OP
for under 280 for X-Fire? no
if you have to go with one card then the next... would you rather consider getting a second 5850 and crossfire them?

You said if I sold my 5850 you would get 2 6850. My answer was to a crossfire pair of 6850. You wont be able to max setting with AA on either of the single card solutions you wanted.

Yes, you will get a large boost in performance with the addition of the second card.

To be honest, if youre going to buy another card, stick with the 5850 and then buy a second one. They will out perform the 6850 in crossfire.

I read that two 6850 will be faster in crossfire though?

Wow, how come I couldn't find that in google >.<
So I should just stick to the current 5850, purchase another 5850 and get a raidmax 730W hybrid psu? Any idea if that power supply will run the computer? I'm using the first post spec's + OCZ vertex 2 SSD, one WD 250GB HDD, one dvd cd burner (sata), 4 120mm blue led fan, and one 200mm fan [antec 300 case]. Will I have enough power to upgrade to H|T Omega soundcard in the future?

you should be just fine with that PSU wattage... I'm not familiar with the raidmax in general

The Raidmax 730w is not a good PSU. You will want to look at something better. You wont need more than 600-650w so look at a good brand. Might be able to get away with a 550w PSU.

Here are a few I suggest...
