man, we have a similar system. it may not play it at the highest setting but it plays just as good. i posted this in another thread . . .

Using my Cheap Grade chip at 4GHz Quad and GPU at stock.

HD 7950(800 Mhz) - 35
HD 7970 - 40
HD 7970 Ghz - 44

at stock the HD 7950 boost with power control at +20% to avoid clock throttling you would be around 38 - 39 fps. at an average overclock of 1100 Mhz HD 7950 would match the HD 7970 Ghz(1050 mhz) at 44 fps. its well known that clock for clock HD 7950 is 3 - 6% slower than HD 7970. If you get an above average overclocker with 1200 Mhz you are easily close to 47 -48 fps. not bad at all. :thumb
:

Ya if you consider 44 FPS playable and he could get a bad overclocker so that's not even guaranteed. I agree 7950 is better option than 660ti, but not for what he wants. You always blindly rush to recommend AMD gpu's,

I can tell you cause I actually play the game 40FPS actually feels more like 30FPS. The game just has a stutter issue specifically with AA. Not just me their forum is full of people with 7970/7950 complaining its unplayable, unless they lower settings.

Sorry bro but it gets annoying when people recommend a GPU based on how it MIGHT OC. What happens when he takes your advice and cant get past 1150?

the game is still in beta. lets wait for the final game release with launch day drivers before making statements about game being unplayable. The OP wants to choose between HD 7950 and GTX 660 Ti for Crysis 3. HD 7950 boost is faster than GTX 660 Ti for the same price. also given that crysis 3 can now be had free with HD 7950 cards its an even more easier choice. thumb.gif

I agree 100% That's why I recommended the 7950 as well.

I just disagree with your reasons. Saying he can play it at max with msaa x4 is complete BS. It will be a stuttery mess. Also, saying he can OC to 1200 is misleading as not all cards do that. I know I owned some.

Realistic he is looking at playing VHQ with SMAA low to no AA. Definitely not ultra as far as we know yet.

Also, we are 2 weeks away from launch. Just cause its a beta does not mean it will change much on release which is a short time away.

For me it came down to one simple fact, performance! I wanted the most amount of horsepower for $390 bucks I had to spend, and 2 x 660 was the only answer. 7950 or 7970 comes no where close to the FPS im getting now. Best money spent.

Seeing as he cant SLI thats why I said 7950.

Your idea of playable and his might be different for all you know. And a single more powerful GPU solution is, IMO, always the better way to go... and if he ever decided to add texture mods or anything, the extra VRAM on the 7900 series will help.

For $390 I would personally go with a 7950 and watercool it.

Either solution would work well, 660 SLI would be a more powerful option but not the best option in the long term IMO.

For him I already said 7950. However if he could SLI 660 would destroy any 7950 even water cooled. Seeing how most people on this forum update their GPU;s with each new generation, I say go dual GPU's cause odds are by the time you get ready to crossfire that 7950 then new gen is out and its better to just sell it and upgrade to the new gen. I see that happen all the time on here. Otherwise I do agree with ya.


P.S. I noticed you SLI too, any tips for keeping the top card cool? Or you water cool them as well?

Fair enough, I can agree with that for the most part.

Just watercool now then use the WC gear on your next rig as well. Just have to go with Universal GPU blocks instead of full covered.

as people have said I'm sure both cards will do I actually like nvida better so I personally would go with 660 TI

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130839

I was using this before my monitor died it's freaking awesome If it couldn't play crysis 3 in medium if not high I would be surprised ._.

know they are two different chips but I think if the 650 TI SSC is that good (and compact why I chose it) then 660 TI should be awesome :3
