I'm thinking something along the lines of...think of how many times I'll just stay home playing games instead of going out to hang with real people. This will easily pay for itself in 6 months.

Changing a HD 7950 card which is performing well might not be a good idea. I have seen your benchmark scores. Your HD 7950 at 1100+ Mhz is better than a HD 7970 Ghz. And given that nex gen games are going to really start to push the PC to its limits the HD 7950's bandwidth advantage might prove crucial in the games going forward.

In games which really push the cards like Metro 2033 with DOF and MSAA and Crysis Warhead the HD 7950's bandwidth has shown to make a difference. With games like Crysis 3 and Metro Lat Light coming in 2013 sticking to your HD 7950 might be the best option. think about it.

I know. This 7950 performs too well so I don't wanna get rid of it, but I want BL2+Physx the easiest way I can get it. Btw, I've posted some new benches and I'm gonna do some BF3 runs in a minute.

Don't! Just install it and let it sit there.

And hope she never asks where the money went.

Or buy something for her as well to distract her.

If you can get that to work then let me know! XD

But man, Nvidia have hit a price/performance sweet spot. Unfortunately, I actually use lots of DRAM for Nvidia Surround so I'm gonna stick with the more expensive 670 4gb models. And the performance bus limitation kinda worries me if you have more than one monitor and/or for future games where the bus might actually effect overall performance. (I think someone said that earlier)

Just like any review of kepler nvidia seems to win and been so close between 660,670 and 680. The auto clock feature wins the review at stock.easily. Just crank up this amd card a bit use 12.8 and see the difference. At 300 $ this is so expensive. Its a card for 1080p and below and they charge 300 $. At 200-250 $ its a perfect card.

Still better than a 7870.

I dont think so. We must w8 until we see more bench from users. Like the post above crank up the AA and this card cant keep up. No reason to choose 660ti over 7950 or 7870 from the moment that the mark for this card is at 300$. For 300 $ i want to play with AA at 1080p at least.
