MSI R7870 HAWK GHz Edition or MSI GTX 660Ti PE OC? Worth extra $50? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
OP if you are spending USD 300 go for HD 7950 boost. matches GTX 670 at stock. easily overclocks to 1150 mhz and matches HD 7970 Ghz performance. the sapphire HD 7950 boost for USD 300 (280 after rebate) is a good option. excellent dual x cooler. also AMD has added crysis 3 and bioshock infinite game bundle recently. thumb.gif

if you want to stick closer to USD 250 the sapphire HD 7870 XT with Tahiti LE is a good option . price USD 260 (245 after rebate). bioshock infinite and tomb raider game bundle free.

HD 7970 Ghz - 78.9

Or if you're already at the 660ti price range just get a 7950.
