    I finally paid for a new PowerColor ATI Radeon HD6850 1 GB DDR5 on Ebay.

    Not the safest bet since it's PCI-Express 2.1 and I have never tried this brand before, but the price is quite reasonable (125 USD).

    If it doesn't work I will resell it anyway.

    Will let you guys know when it ships. Probably 3 weeks or so. Fingers crossed.

    Three weeks ?? where's it coming from, china ?? haha............I think you made a good decision, hopefully it works well in your system.............the 6850's have been getting a lot of "best buy for the bucks" kudos lately online...........so, i just got one too, yesterday, installed it last nite.....kinda sucks that the end of the card just touches the p55 chipset heatsink on my gigabyte motherboard, when i put the card in the first(x16) slot...i was gonna use the second (x8) slot, where the card touches nothing, but, i thought it might not work as fast, not sure?.....so far, no problems with heat or anything, but, will keep an eye on it......xfx makes the card i bought, decent manufacturer, i think...not sure of powercolor............i think after rebate it was 139, at microcenter, in boston.

    Hey, the card just came but it didn't include the 6-pin power supply cable. And the motherboard doesn't seem to have a connector for it. Please take a look at the pictures.

    What brand/model is your power supply?
    Does it have a 6-pin pci-e power cable?

    @profJim Nope it doesn't have a 6-pin cable, or at least I don't see it.


    Description:
    Xtech, 600 W - 20+4, 4 pins for processor, 3 molex connectors, 1 sata connector, disk connector.
