    Goddamn..

    I need a XFX HD585XZAFC Radeon HD 5850 Video Card - 1GB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0
    But everywhere I fucking look, the shit is out of stock.
    Amazon has them but they want like 330+ bucks for it which is a rip off compared to what Tiger and Newegg were selling them for.. Any other suggestions for me?

    6850, same card, just upgraded firmwear.
    I only got the 5750 but don't be fooled at its cost, i've played the bf3 beta at high with min 25 fps at 1600*900 res and thats just the first starting zone of metro ocasionly.


    Speaking of bf3, getting it tonight at gamestop

    Okay but the 6850 is the exact same as the 5850 but with upgraded software inside it from my understanding, I doubt they will restock the 5850 because AMD from what I may/may not understand is not making anymore 5850s because the 6850 is the same and has newer software built into it.

    Hmm..I dunno why the hell people are trying to sell the card for 300 bucks if I can get the same card for half the price..
    The only thing I didn't like about the XfX 6850 is it comes with no power cables. alot of reviews said the fan was loud too.
    Might get the Sapphire 6850 instead.

    Your power supply should have the cables to plug into your GPU

    Its done on purpose to phase out the card so people are forced to buy the new ones.

    I think I'm gonna try out the Sapphire seems like it got better reviews..+ after mail in rebates I get a free game and get the card for 134.00 with all the accessories I need just in case my new PSU doesn't have them.

    Appreciate the help @ltdjowns
