    Post XFX HD 6850 or Sapphire HD 6850 which one

    I want to buy a Radeon HD 6850 GPU but confused with the products.

    is it sapphire or xfx.

    Let me inform you that i have an XFX nvidia 8800 GT card and i used it for 3 years.and the performance is much better than the other company like asus and gigabyte as i tested it with my friends.so i am on side with XFX. but i never use radeon card of XFX. And i heard that sapphire is the no 1 in Radeon manufacturing. so i am confused what to buy

    if any one has other option , opinion or experience with these cards please share it.

    it will be more helpful for me.
    and one thing overclocking is not necessary for me

    so, does this mean that Asus products imported by global brand bd are not lousy as XfXs imported by ucc?
    & what about the MSI cards, which are also imported by ucc ?

    To me, about 6850he,
    .......
    Best-1.msi cyclone 6850hd OC Edition and 2.asus direct cu 6850hd on the basis of built-quality.
    Gigabyte one has dual fan cooler but built-quality seems tobe a bit inferior to that of asus one but still good..
    Don't know about sapphire one in bd.

    .....
    I tested asus and gigabyte one.



    ---------- Post added at 19:10 ---------- Previous post was at 19:06 ----------

    Oh... And u can volt tweak msi and asus one to reach 980-1000mhz core speed...but the gigabyte one in bangladesh is not-volt tweakable because of lack of software.
    So u can reach at best 840-860mhz stable core clock.

    is there anyone who has used the same product or watch the quality between the different companies. because in my past experience i bought an asus nvidia 8600 GT 512 MB but it was no match with the xfx nvidia 8600 GT 256 MB(one of my friend had one). And i had to change the card and switched to xfx. So i am too afraid of asus but also i dont know their recent product quality nor about gigabyte. So if anyone experienced with these cards please give info. and is MSI is good? if yes, then nvidia or radeon. or the gtx 460 is better option.

    Gigabyte,Sapphire,MSI are my first prefer. Asus is also good. But don't go for XFX if you buy it from BD.

    Just cause no one else can do such high factory overclock as GIGABYTE SOC edition cards.

    The 512MB Asus card you bought first had DDR2 memory on it, thus lesser memory bandwidth, and the XFX one was a DDR3 card, makes sense? It's ridiculous how you're stamping XFX's authority over Asus. If you're limited to choosing only between Sapphire and XFX, Sapphire should be the choice, however the high end XFX cards are no pushovers either, GigaByte, Asus, MSI, these three are pretty much on par when it comes to build quality, don't listen to fanboy preferences when it comes to these three brands and try judging the products based on reviews/price vs performance ratio and also features such as cooling, power phase designing, warranty, availability, etc.

    Dont get any XFX card cuz my XFX Radeon 4870 got busted within 1 and half years. if possible, you should try to get a GTX 550 ti or GTX 560 instead, or else go for the sapphire one its much better than XFX and try to stay away from UCC.

    thank u so much..Sapphire or XFX is not the only option...i used xfx for three years and i am impressed with it.so i thought of xfx but i heard sapphire is good for radeon. i used nvidia earlier, so switching to radeon is a new thing for me. oh and switching to radeon is bcos of xfx is not making any nvidia cards.
    but i think i am clear now.

    ---------- Post added at 15:56 ---------- Previous post was at 15:53 ----------

    but the question is if i am not limiting the choice then what brand and what model should i choose in the range of 18k and a 500watt psu? is nvidia or radeon.

    ---------- Post added at 19:47 ---------- Previous post was at 15:56 ----------

    gigabyte radeon 6850 price is 14800 tk (sapphire 6850 is 16000 tk)and from their web i saw it needs a 400w psu.

    i have a thermaltake 400w psu, so if i buy gigabyte one i dont have to change my psu.

    msi 6850 is not available in computer city. but 6870 is available , price is 18000 tk (its ok for me) and i have to buy a 500w psu.

    OR msi N560GTX-Ti Hawk ---price is 20000 tk. i am really messed up

    If your budget is 15K, get a GTX560.
