Which $140 GPU? GTX 460 vs HD 7770 vs HD 6850 (all 1GB)

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

Case closed.

 

Will either go used or this XFX 7770 for $120 w/ a $15 MIR.

 

Will leave unedited for the search engine.

 

 

 

$140 - PowerColor AX6850 1GBD5-DH Radeon HD 6850 1GB

$140 w/ $15 rebate - MSI R7770-2PMD1GD5/OC Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB

$140 w/ $20 rebate - MSI N460GTX-M2D1GD5/OC2 GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB

 

From what I've seen the 7770, 6850, and 460 are basically the same when it comes to performance, but it will change sometimes with the 6850 being a few FPS better. I'd rank them (good to bad): 6850, 7770, 460.

 

Bench #1 (techspot)

 

BF3_03.png

In this you see the 6850 and 7770 are on par and I'd assume the GTX 460 1GB as well, with the 6770 well behind.

 

Bench #2 (tom's hardware)

 

battlefield%203%201920.png

 

Here we only see the 7770 and 6850, and both are tied again.

 

Bench #3 (guru3d)

 

All test runs have enabled:

  • DX11
  • Ultra mode
  • 4xMSAAAA enabled
  • 16x AF enabled
  • HBAO enabled
  • Level: Operation Swordbreaker

 

imageview.php?image=36690

 

Here we see the 7770 and 6850 alone again, but with a 1 FPS difference, but it might as well be 0.

 

Now, so far it's been close on BF3, but if we look at BF2 things change:

 

Bench #4 (Guru3D)

 

  • Level: Upriver
  • DirectX 11 enabled
  • 8x Multi-sample Anti-Aliasing
  • 16 Anisotropic Filtering
  • All image quality settings enabled at maximum

What does everyone think?

If your monitor resolution is 1920 x 1080 go for the powercolor HD 6850. Across a wide range of games 6850 is faster. And it has more bandwidth because of 256 bit memory. But if you want lower power, better compute performance and your resolution is 1680 x 1050 or lower you could go for HD 7770.

MSI HD 7770 - USD 129 (USD 114 with mail in rebate)

If you're willing to go used I'd say a 470 from the OCN marketplace. Plenty in there and they're awesome cards

Wait for the GTX 560/560ti to drop in price. Look around you can probably a normal 560 for that price.

Yeah, I'm gonna try and convince my friend to go that route.

 

I just found this XFX 7770 for $120 w/ a $15 MIR, so $105 after rebate shipped. So either that or a used GPU on OCN.

Agreed, If you convinced your friend & if he don't mind the heat and power consumption then absolutely the GTX 470.
It will leave all those cards in the dust. It also overclock very well, at 850 MHz core it will perform 85-90% of a stock GTX 580.

The GTX 470 is old. Get something at least in gtx 500 series or in the Radeon 6000 series. Just my opinion though.
