    It really depends on your budget. The 6850 is an entry level to mid level graphics card, its still really good if all you can afford is a 6850.

    Re: Hey guys, need some help

    Smartie11 - you could go for the 6870, it's about £125 in Dabs. If you want ultimate performance, you could find yourself a 6870X2 card, although I think they are £200+. I think the 6850 is about 80-90% of a 6870, and the 6870 is supposedly 90% of the 6950 (1Gb)!! If you want a crossfire, 6870's are great as well, as their scaling is unbelievably high (as high as 99% in some games according to tom's hardware benches)
