    i have bought a gaming pc
    and the guy who sold it to me, said that it
    has an ati radeon 6850 hd.
    but when i go to display adapter, it reads 5800 series.

    does the 6850 hd has a red strip with the name radeon on the side of the card?
    i know that the 5800 series has it.

    and is there another way how to know whats the name of the graphic card i have
    instead of using device manager

    thanks

    pull the card out of the pc to look at the labels on the card.
