^^what hindrance are you referring to?

There wont be any hindrance to performance by going with the above pair.

OP,please mention your psu.

At 8.5k hd 6850 is a better option than hd 7770 keeping in mind the gaming performance but hd7770 is much more power efficient than hd6850.

there's no HD7770 is avilable at 8.5k - the lowest one costs 8.9k now but adding 200 bucks more for a HD6850 makes more sense and your cpu ie i3 2100/2120 is enugh to handle HD6850 or even more powerful cards.

Except on the Power consumption, where HD7770 is 40 -50W lesser.

Pure Performance,HD6850 is always better than HD7770.

Get HD 6850 , worth the price. Avoid Sapphire ( from my 3 card experience ) and go for MSI ones as they're better built.

Hey! Friends I was thinking to buy gigabyte hd 7770 at 8k and invest the money from hd 6850 in better ram. The Hd 7770 will perform better in newer games. So, what's ur say on that? Also I was thinking to cahnge the processor from i3 2120 to FX 4100 due to its higher clock speeds and unlocked multiplier. Moreover, it is the cheaper of the two and yet a quad core. And I was thinking to overclock the proccy as well as the GPU.

Better buy Phenom II X4 960T over FX-4100 then. 960T is faster.

X4 960T might unlock to 6 cores if lucky and the motherboard supports core unlocking.
