What does everyone think of this upgrade? How much of a upgrade wold this be performance wise? Would it run cooler? My current 4890 I have up for sale takes a 6 Pin & 8 Pin.

What are your thoughts? Thank you.

well...what do you want to know..?
obviously it's an upgrade. nothing else much to say...

EDIT: just looked up the prices for a 6850, you should have bought a 5850 since they are priced the same now.

agree with this. 5870 is a great deal for its performance right now.

Only "bad" thing I can see is you will not have a drastic increase in FPS amongst Direct X 10 and 9 games. Possitives include: Less power draw, less heat output, and 2 6850's would show a significant increase in FPS over 2 4890's.

Im about to go 6850's from a 4870 myself.

upgrade? UPGRADE?
going from the top of the line of one series to the current bottom of another??

at a minimum you want a 470, 580, 5870 or 6950 if you really think you need an upgrade. 6850 not worth it.

I wouldn't upgrade. At least 6870 or 6950. 6870 is a great card! Doubled my FPS on Just Cause 2 from 4890 950/1050MHz.
