need help deciding on which graphic card to upgrade to

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm currently looking at the HD 7850 2gb, GTX 660 2gb and HD 7870 2gb. Which should I get? I'm trying to save as much as possible. ($185 vs $230 vs $ 245)

I heard a HD 7850 2GB can beat out a GTX 660 in most games when they're fully overclocked. Any benchmarks proving this?

EDIT: Will be gaming at 1680x1050 most of the time and will dip into 1080p once in awhile.

The gtx 660 is a stronger card for sure looking at this chart below. You would need to oc your 7850 a good amount and stable (which isnt certain).

but IF you choose to go 660 you might aswel go 7870 cause its so close to the same price.

Buuut all in all, if you feel you want max frames you might have to pay more, but personally with your current system the 7850 will do great and you won't regret it. (like you won't feel aah damn should have got that 660)

I think I will go with the HD 7850, the problem with that chart is the 7850 usually overclocks to 1200 on the core and 5500 on the memory. I've seen up to 1300 and 6000 without any special cooling in this thread http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?s=cd6362abd11c0d7608e242be61a2fe71&t=18389760&page=51
