Which Graphics Card Should I Choose? 7850 vs 7870 vs Kepler? :cryingsmi

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So as the title said what graphics card should I go for currently have a budget left for graphics card at $374. Don't necessarily want to go for something that expensive but will if needed. Also I can afford to go higher max probally $450 but mostly I want to go for $300- cards. This card has to be able to last me for about 4 years on around average settings i.e I would be using it on ultra for first high second and average for 3&4 would a 660 ti/ 7850 be fine or should I spend more for a 670/7870 or dual 660 ti/7850? I don't really have any idea. Also here is my current specs for proposed system.

Processor: Intel i5 3570k $211
Motherboard: ASrock Extreme 4 Z77 $162
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Unbuffered $54
Graphics Card?
Solid State Drive: Intel SSD 120GB 520 Series $185
Optical Dirve: Samsung Dual Layer Burner SATA Black 22x 24x writer $23
Power Supply: Antec High Cureent Gamer 520w $79
Cooling: Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO $39
Case: NZXT Phantom USB 3.0 Black $177

P.S i'm in AU so prices are higher than US in some cases thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

just buy the best card in your comfortable price range.
4 years? seriously, we're not fortune tellers. we can't see that far into the future.
especially with the next generation console systems on the horizon. these console ports are going to be more demanding than they are currently.
not to mention new game engines are being developed constantly, frostbite 2 engine for for example is a game changer.
