    Re: new card on a budget

    Of course a Geforce GTX 560 is also in your price range, its faster then AMD's 7700 and the 6850. Not sure how it will scale with your cpu, but it still should be faster....

    Re: New Monitor

    Are you within 100 miles of a Microcenter? A Dell S-IPS of 27" that does 2560 x 1440 will set you back $1,000.

    Its worth the drive if you really need a 27".....

    Re: new card on a budget

    Regarding buswidth you're right. However the faster core + memory speed of the 7770 puts it right on par, neck + neck with the 6850:

    Re: new card on a budget

    The AMD cards have an advantage (NOT BOTTLENECKING MUCH) with slightly underpowered cpu's.

    Re: New Monitor

    The monitor AMD_Activate bought (an S-IPS made in Korea that does 2560 x 1440) is the best "bang for buck" 27" IPS available today.)

    Microcenters sell a version of it as well.

    HD6870 vs HD7850:

    Unless you overclock that 7850 its not a big upgrade. More vram is a plus though.

    Re: Card upgrade?

    I don't think either choice will give you much of a gpu "upgrade." The HD7850 if you massively OC it will equal the performance of a Geforce GTX 570/ 580. But at stock speed its only a tad faster...
