Trying to work out how the Radeon naming scheme works, due to this review :

http://casualstrolltomordor.com/2010/03/lotro-eyefinity-and-you/

He's using a HIS 5850

I have a Sapphire HD 6870

So one generation on (6>5) if that's right.

My card should walk it then I hope, or is that wishful thinking ?

The important number on these cards is the 850, 870 and 890 on the end of the number

850 is good

870 is very good

890 is the dogs bollox.

The 4, 5, 6 and 7 at the front of the number is the chipset type basically what shaders and direct x it supports.

This is why my old HD4890 is still running the latest games, no it can't  do direct x 11 but its still fast.

Freddy your card will walk it Smiley

I had to laugh at that expensive card

Minimum System Power requirement (W) - 850W

I wouldn't get it on principle even if money was no object.

Newegg.com shows that card as Discontinued and out of stock, so not something I could do, I'm afraid.
