The PCI 3.0 situation won't be an issue...

As for the two cards, they are both very close in performance. The 7770 uses less power, creates less heat, and isn't as loud as the 6850 and even beats out the 6850 in some games. While the 6850 beats out the 7770 in other games, but it does generate more heat, noise, and uses more power.

Truthfully between the two I would take the 7770, as performance is close enough the lower heat/noise/power being the deciding factor.

just another heads up, the saphire radeon 6850 is the same price as the xfx 7770 they both retailing for $150 im pretty sure the 7770 is a better deal because it also came with 2 free games, either way im gonna want this video for 1 game only (my favorite) D3
