Need help deciding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN, I was wondering if you all can help with a decision on upgrading graphics? I will be coming from a ati 4830 and Was thinking about going to a 6850, now thinking 5770 I can get the 5770 for a good deal and then can add a second monitor please help? Is the 5770 still a decent card with ummph left in it I play bf2 bc, Dc universe, mainly and may try out the new Dragon age2 and crysis 2. Thanks

In a word, yes. A 6850 is more potent, but a 5770 is still a capable piece of hardware, and will best the 4830 without a problem. I'd still recommend a 6850, unless you have an extremely compelling price on the 5770.

a 5770 is about the equal to a 4870... while the 6850 is between a 5830(a little more than a 4890) and 5850(roughly the same as a 4850X2)....

Unless you are playing at a low res...the 6850 should give you the biggest performance boost...
