Thank you very much for this... I thought this was the case but didnt want to say anything.Originally Posted by raghu78
HD 6870 is no match for GTX 470 in DX11 games. the VLIW4 architecture is weak in modern games like crysis 3 , farcry 3, bf3 with MSAA. I would say go for a HD 7850 2GB. but it will cost you more. you can sell a GTX 470 for USD 100. HD 7850 cards sell for USD 160
HD 7850 can overclock to 1.15 ghz matching HD 7870 / GTX 580 at those clocks.
