4770 vs 460 vs 560

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok so here´s the deal. In my 2nd rig that is in another house, i have a 4770. Quite old, can only play BC2 decently at High to medium settings 0xAA @ 1440x900 (19" monitor).
I was studying the situation, and for the upcoming Battlefield 3, it wont be enough to handle such nice graphics. So i searched the web and i found a PNY GTX460 1GB for 99€. Very nice price considering the gpu it is.
So i researched further and i found a PNY GTX560 1GB for 159€.
Here´s the first obstacle. Is the difference between the two large?
So the next problem is the PSU. I have a 400w on that PC. It won´t be enough i believe, even more my Phenom II is unlocked to 4 cores and running at 4.2GHz. So i thought of a 550w OCZ PSU? Known brand and cheap (55€)?
So next one is... I have a 5850 in my main rig. I heard that the GTX560 is like even better than the 5850? And the 6870 is to put in the list too, but i believe its the same thing and kinda more expensive. So I have 3, most likely 2 because the PSU is basiclly chosen. Would you guys help me out? I´m kinda driving crazy...

If your willing to expand that list a bit i would say go either 6950 or 560 replace you 5850 and then put the 5850 in the secondary rig.

But yes the 560 is faster than the 5850 and the 6950 is faster than the 560 in most situations. Not by a huge unbelievable amount, but by a decent amount.

560: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125363 - $250 USD, 174 Euros

6950 1Gb: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102921 - $242 USD, 168 Euros

6950 2Gb:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102945 - $264 USD, 183 Euros

alright for the powersupply its really just personal preference but i would go for a corsair, im my experience they are more reliable. But if you had the spare money i would go for a 650watt but a 550 should be okay, but dont quote me on that.

EDIT: BTW the 560 TI is about equivelent to a 470 or so. so its about 15% faster than a 460

Will the 400w hold the 5850?

The difference between the 460 and 560 isn't really that large. The 560 is like an overclocked 460.

The 560 Ti on the other hand, is much faster than the 460.

Going from HD 4670 Crossfire (similar to a HD 4770 - both 640 steam processors) to a GTX 460 was about a doubling (100% increase) in FPS. Now the major difference between the GTX 460 and the GTX 560 (non-Ti) is purely clock speed meaning the GTX 560 will clock higher. The thing is, most GTX 460s can hit stock GTX 560 speeds. My PNY GTX 460 1GB reached 880 core with 1.087V.

If it's a quality 400W it should be able to handle the rig; if it's a no-name brand, it needs an upgrade.

Also, a stock 6870 will beat a stock 5850.

Go with 500-watt power supply or greater.

Should i wait until i get some money to buy a better gpu than the 560 TI and some money for a new PSU? I believe i´m not taking the risk to pay money for only more 10% performance than my 5850. I´ll guess i´ll wait till the end of the year or something.

ya, besides your 5850 should do BF3 well enough for you to enjoy it, just save up some money. Thats what im planning on doing, is saving up some money and then maybe picking up a 7950 or something depending on their performance
