Which card for new build?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay so i'm building a new PC and i've decided that I want an MSI hawk/frozr card. Though I can't decide which would be the best bang for my buck

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127578 - 560-Ti Hawk -220$ after MiB

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127560 - 6870 Hawk-185$ after MiB

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-127-663&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo - 7850 Frozr- 260

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127615 - 560 Ti 448 cores.


I play on one monitor with 1920x1080 res, Most demanding games i'll be playing is Skyrim ,Tera Online, Guild Wars 2 ,Diablo 3.


With MSI afterburner default clock speeds etc aren't that important. The Asus DCUII 560s and 7850s look pretty good as well.

560-TI Hawk: 1GB Ram 256-bit-384 Core

560-TI 448 Frozr-1.2GB Ram-320bit-448 Core

6870 Hawk-1GB Ram-256 bit-1120 SPUs

7850 Frozr-2GB Ram-256 bit-1024 SPUs

With the games I plan to run all I want to accomplish is the magic of 60 FPS steady.

I'd look at the 7850, I hear they are major workhorse's and you can't go wrong having more ram, more games are using more ram daily even on just your standard 1080 monitor, BF3 is the best example.

id have to say 7850, 560ti, 6870, then 560ti 448. The only reason 448 cores is last is becuz its limited. If u get one, they might be gone wen u wana sli one so ur screwed with upgrading. 7850 is new tech plus lots of memory

Well I was personally thinking the 7850 looked best and so there's my answer but help me out here. Asus or the Frozr?!?! XD

I'd go with Asus, both cards are similar and I would expect similar results. I just like the look of the Asus card more.
