Default Re: Graphics Cards

the 5770 crossfired is no use in skyrim, works well in crysis 2 tho. but over all it was worth the extra 40 the second one cost me. An ill prob make 80 back of them when i put them on ebay.

just to make your decision harder. the XFX 7850 is only 10 more than the 6950.

Personally I wouldn't be looking at the 6950. In my opinion you're best options are the 7850, 7870, and the 7950. You machine will perform quite a bit better (graphically) with the 7950 but to be honest the 7850 will still play most games on high settings

Smile Re: Graphics Cards

Hmm after alot of consideration i have decided to go for...

*Drum Roll*

The XFX 7950 3GB Black Edition Double D

I have thought that i might as well splash the boat out now and save money in the long term.

This Will Complete My Build and no adjusting is then needed for two years+

(i say now 2 months from now as its alot higher price than the 6950 i was gonna buy)

Again thanks.
