AMD XFX Radeon HD 6870 or AMD Radeon HD 7xxx Series which is best
  

I amreally new about all of this I would really appreciate if anyone here help me on this issue . so the problem is that I am thinking about upgrading the GPU and considering the XFX HD6870 2Gb Dual Fan or is it wise that I should wait for the HD7xxx series . my budget is under the 200 Euros . well I am not looking for the best performing card in the ,market but the most power balanced. I have the Powercolor HD4870 512mb PSC+ installed on my main machine and I will be playing the lite games on Stream. Is there anyone here can help me on this I will be really appreciating this

Thanks in advance

Well the best option that I can see is to get the AMD Radeon HD 6950and overclocked it to the AMD Radeon HD 6970 . This will be the best deal , hope this would help you on making your decision .

Flashing to a 6970 will works was never a guarantee anyways. Getting for this card for this purpose makes no sense. However this graphic card nice card and i am positive you'll be pleased with it. The latest version is said to be not ready to be flashed to the HD6970. once you bought the HD6950, you purchased the HD6950, and it is not 100% sure to be unlocked anyways. I suggest look the viewer views on the web as they have stated its not wise

If you're trying to flash your card from a 6950 to a 6970, this can be not the graphic card . however i am unable to see where i might want it. This card will everything I raise it to try to to.

This card does not have the BIOS switch therefore if that is what your searching for this is not the graphic card . Not a major con on to me anyways

Card is perhaps a brand new version of the 6950 and locked from ATI. Oh well the 6950 remains pretty awful

I was able to play game on three monitors with Crysis two absolutely cranked at CCC overclock and stock voltage and it never had any issue . Most people cannot understand over 30FPS (especially during a firefight). Some with exceptional vision will see up to 60fps. The newer games are all such a lot higher optimized than the game just like the original Crysis. The 6950 will be over fine.

AMD Radeon HD 7970 is what I suggest that will really be the best choice . you have to invest once and never have to worried about it , atleast for the one years . but I have to warn you that it will be a slight out of budget or the other think you can do is to wait a while as the arrival of the 7xxx cards the price of the 6xxx card will be fall dramatically
