Is an HD 7870 a good upgrade vs the GTX 560 ti?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just wondering. May be building a new PC in the summer, and I was thinking about getting a 7870. Obviously I'll be getting a new processor, motherboard and all that good stuff, but will I notice an increase in performance with a 7870 as opposed to a 560 ti?

That would be a marginal upgrade. I would save a bit more money and get a 7950 or a lower end 6xx series nVidia card.

Yeah, but we don't really know the performance of lower-end 600 series cards yet. Will they be out by mid-summer?
