Depends where you live, I got a 7870 sapphire OC'd for around 100 dollars cheaper than a 660 Ti and 7950 tongue.gif Thats a great deal in my opinion!

Indeed but with AMD's price cuts a little while ago, the 7950 is hovering just over $300 now. With unparalleled performance once you clock it to 1.2GHz core. Tho if you can pick up a 7870 brand new for $170 then by all means.

Yes I live in the Netherlands, Sapphire 7870 OC'd is like 70 euro's cheaper than standard 7950 or 660 Ti, 70 euro's is around 100 dollars I think.

How well does the 660ti overclock? I've seen most HD 7870s gain 20% in benchmarks in a lot of cases. (average oc: 1250/1350)
post #35 of 39
Just bought me a 7870 and i was with the same doubt if 660ti or 7870, well went with the amd card and no regrets ''yet''.

The card is at 1200/1350 with 1.2vgpu 24/7. Every game i play feels smooth i play with vsync and haven't seen it below 60fps yet everything max out

Well it was either 'Make a new thread and get yelled at for not searching' or bumping something ancient. So here we are. Sorry. Anyways, has anything changed between these 2 cards? Will be purchasing one as soon as my next paycheck gets in.
