The biggest difference is the extra 320 streams....7770/640 streams.....6850/960 streams....8 extra texture units, 16 ROP's, and 128 more memory bandwidth for the 6850

AnandTech - AMD Radeon HD 7750 & Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition Review: Evading The Price/Performance Curve

Yes the 3.0 will outdo the 2.x's .....if you have enough card to use all the extra bandwidth....

If you are worried about a bad card get a XFX....now you MUST register the card in 30 days on their website (took me 3 tries before it took) Lifetime warranty.....Here's something interesting Newegg.com - XFX Double D HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

I doubt any of these cards will hit $100

see, this is what really ticks me off...ATI came out with the new 7000 series so I assume they are better than the 6000/5000 predecessors, but thanks to you for giving me a heads up, the 6850 has much more "meat" than the 7770 and around the same price. So besides the PCIe 3.0 aspect, there's nothing else the 7770 is better than the 6850 at? If that is the case I will focus my selection towards the ATI 6000 series sicne their drivers are more mature...thanks for all this wonderful info!

Really no... The 6850 carries the day, You have to be really careful about what you get....The box makes everything sound wonderful

gotta love deceptive advertising! I am probably going to get a SINGLE higher end 6000 series card then -- maybe 6870/6790s so I can leave extra PSU wattage if I want to OC the GPU or CPU. thx for all the help!
