I will be getting a GPU soon, and my case and PSU have been changed, now wondering if I should get a 6850 instead of a 6770, money is kind of tight, but if it's so much stronger, then I'll go ahead and spend the extra cash.

I plan to play games like:
RAGE
Skyrim
Battlefield 3
Borderlands 2
The Witcher 2

My native resolution is 1980x1080.

Is it worth it?
How much stronger is it in percent?

Well for essentially $40.00 bucks more you get a 256 bit memory interface,instead of 128-bit on the 6770,and 960 stream processors instead of 800. I believe the hd6850 is worth the extra money,however you should consider things like warranty, and if you plan to cf in the future, etc....

This is what I want to hear, but the 6770 performs just fine in gaming. But I guess ill spend the extra bucks on it.

If your money is a kind of tight, I think you just buy 6770 because they are all middle level cards. btw, I think you can try gigabyte's graphic cards for their quality, fans, and heat dissipation.
