What GPU will give me highest FPS with this set up - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Thread Starter 
Guys i just overclocked my GTX 570 PNY a little bit

850 on the core clock - over the stock 732

and 2002 on the memory clock

according to MSI afterbuner it got up to 71 degrees on the GPU during my bench mark on Heaven DX11 is that bad?

It gave me 4+ FPS compared to the 29 FPS score i got on stock voltage is it okay

i recommend a 7970. this is just a 7950 you can compare to your current one . . .

A 7950 would perform around the level of a 680 for far less money, and you'll get more VRAM and overall memory bandwidth which means better future proofing and also makes the option of going dual-card in the future far more appealing. I could use my 6950's as an example of this; they feature 2GB of VRAM, while the 570 offered 1.3GB. SLI 570's will frequently hit the VRAM wall these days; going up to 1440p would be a headache if I bought the 570's I was looking at originally, but since I have the extra VRAM of the 6950's they perform the way you'd expect two 6950's to perform.

VRAM aside though, you're still getting better performance and a better price with AMD if you're looking at anything over $230. Not to mention, you're free to overclock with AMD while nV comes voltage locked as per their "Green Light" program.

Edit: Here's a 7950 for $299, and a 7970 for $389; both have free shipping and a $20 rebate and perform better than their nV counterparts. Also Sapphire is one of the best brands in my experience, and their aftermarket coolers are quite sexy. I've seen the same 7950 for as low as $249 with free shipping and 3 free games on Newegg, but the deals haven't been as good lately. You could probably find a better price if you looked around.

Get the 7950 if you choose AMD, it OC's like a champ with the stock cooler. Mines sitting at 1100/1575 right now. 7970 speeds are easy to get so the extra money isn't even really worth it.

The Fermis are good right up until 90C, 71C is fine

I keep hearing this VRAM argument but even at 1440p with Far Cry 3 on Ultra, I only see 1088MB used. This is with FXAA mind as I don't see the point in MSAA at 1440p, it's not worth the performance kick to the nuts, but that's just my opinion smile.gif

Before anyone else chimes in......... no, I don't play modded Skyrim (not my sort of thing) and Crysis 2 with MaLDoHD didn't kill the VRAM either (although, It was an earlier version of the pack, I have no experience of how the 4.0 saps VRAM) tongue.gif

Sure, there are lots of games that aren't crazily VRAM heavy, but some are. I've had my 6950's about 2 years now and I'm currently gaming at 7680x1440 in many games. I still have no VRAM wall worries, which is nice, you know? I can download and use the high res textures for Skyrim, Minecraft, Crysis and whatever else.

It's definitely something to think about. With new consoles on the horizon, especially, you can expect textures to improve across the board, and I'd rather be on the safe side as far as VRAM goes. I'm sure you've seen all the 570 owners with BF3 woes.

Huh? My HD 7950 is at 1000/1575 and the voltage is at stock settings. Best $280 I've ever spent.

With nVidia, you're paying an extra for the reduced power consumption and noise, not the extra performance
Totally untrue. Most 7950's and 7970's reach 1.15GHz before needing to overvolt, at which point you can often go even further. Also, power consumption and noise are actually quite similar now if you take a look at recent reviews, albeit nV edges out a win.

Well im worried about micro stuttering with AMD and the thing is i don't want to overclock the GPU to the point i have to apply more voltage like if i get the 7970 thats at 1000 stock could i push it to 1100 and 1600 on memory without adding voltage? most likely or maybe?

If not im thinking of just getting a 4gb GTX 670 FTW

I put my voltages at 1250 and I was sitting at 1150/1575
