ATI 6xxx series to get?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting suggestions for a 6xxx series card that will play modern games at a decent frame rate. I'm looking for the best bang for the buck. I do not care to over clock it, and am not at all concerned how loud the stock cooling (yes, stock cooling) is. I'm working with a possible budget of 150$-175$.

Please be kind tongue.gif

with that budget, you really only have 1 choice (out of 4).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161348&cm_re=6850-_-14-161-348-_-Product

Edit: That card will be plenty on your 900p monitor so spending more right now is not needed.

For that budget HD 6870/6850.

I'll give another vote to the 6850. You might could find a deal on a use 6870 here, but at your res, 6850 will plenty.

All right, I went ahead and ordered my self the 6850! I bought it off of [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-DL-DVI-I-SL-DVI-D-PCI-Express-100315L/dp/B0047ZGIUK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1302695500&sr=8-1"]Amazon[/ame] and had it shipped slow boat (no shipping that way). Am super hyped. I've not had a sweet card since my 8800GTS couple of years back.
