  1. Recently built this pc but i made a mistake by buying a 6770 when i have the money for a 6870.

    i3 2100
    700w OCZ ModXStream8
    8gb ddr3 1333
    19' monitor

    how much more performance would i see if i switched to a hd 6870?
    Also what would be a fair price to sell a 6770 in mint condition

    The 6870 is about twice as powerful. Check this review for a good comparison of other GPUs.

    You could try returning it to where it is you bought it from and see if they accept paying a difference and getting a 6870 instead?

    The HD 6870 = 2 x HD 6770
