how effective is that backward fan spin in removing dust is questionable. when you want to clean disconnect the PC. just take a vaccum cleaner and use it in blower mode and blow the dust out of the PC. When you can get a HD Gigabyte 7870 OC for 250 , the msi hd 7850 pe is not a good deal at 220.

You might as well get a HD 7870 for $250 vs $220.

Surely you've got a $100 tucked away somewhere, get a 7950! thumb.gif

YOu may want to wait as the HD7890 is on the way, pushing the 7850/7870's price down "hopefully".

Otherwise id go with the 7950 if you can push that, if not 7870.

research more on the HD 7890 > HD 7870 = GTX 660..
in that order is the path I would take.
even though I might change my mind and take the GTX 660 over the HD 7870, tough call.

Physx is a big plus for me, GTX 660 gives better fps with more eye-candy. Nvidia drivers are better and they are always more up to date when a new title comes out. Other than that, it is apples to oranges, check the bundled games, savings, rebates etc. both are good, modern chips that will rock 1080p you can't go wrong with either card.

so, when you look at it, the 660 beats the 7850 out of the box, but when overclocked the 7850 kicks butt. but, the 660 has better features like physx, and they have better drivers. then what also is going for the 7850?? any other great things i should know about..?
