Games. But not high-end fps or other A+ titles. My friend i'm building it for, plays sport games, mostly football manager, fifa, pes, but he wants no limitations on the quality of the graphics for these games.

Grab a 660ti for around 280 Euros

or a used 580 which might cost less.

660 Ti, costs more than 300 where i'm from. How much better is 660 Ti from the standard? I can find the 660 superclocked, for 230, and i think should be a good deal than to spend 300+. Right?

The "Ti" makes a difference: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/647?vs=660

Although very slight in performance increase, it is noticeable. About 20-25% faster on average biggrin.gif

660 Ti and HD 7950 have a close range of price...much better if your goin to take 7950 because it can run like GTX 670(which a little pricey compare to 660Ti) and if your goin to overclocked it will run faster than GTX 670.......

HD 7870 can be found for as low as $220 US Dollars - not sure how that translates to Euro's but it maxes generally all games @ 1920 x 1200 including Skyrim with all the Ultra packs @ 77.5fps.


Anandtech bench shows that the 7870 is almost on par w/ a 660 Ti and the 660 Ti is quiet a lot more.

yes i agree with that....but on my previous comment if his goin to 660Ti(according to price bases) much better his goin to take the price down HD 7950 than if your goin to compare with HD 7870....

we know that 7950 is higher than 7870........and 7970 is only 7-9% faster(also improvement on frame rates) compare to 7950......

for me 7950 is the good choice.....
