Upgrading 7850 to 670, worth it? - Page 4

post #31 of 58
I say the ASUS CU II, MSi PE/OC, EVGA FTW 670's in that order..
post #32 of 58
but to answer the question OP, yes it's worth it; especially when you can sell your 7850 or trade it in to lessen the cost..
go for it.

It is a no-brainier.

Yes, it's an Upgrade "A Major One" to be exact, you should do it biggrin.gif.

But.... If you can get another 7850 and run X-fire.... You'll be much more happy with your purchase... Unless you also plan on getting another 670 down the road, the 7850 xfire will be much more superior than a single MAX overclocked 670, about 35-45% performance increase depending on the 7850's overclock. wink.gif. I run 660 SLI which is about 15% faster than the 7850, and i switched from a single 670, it's the best decision ever for the same price as a single 670 smile.gif.

I would of suggested xfiring the 7850 to get better proformance. but I am not sure how much your 8*8 pcie lands will hold back the 7850's
post #38 of 58
micro-stuttering, screen tearing already even though Radeon has gotten better with it..
no thanks.

he's running X-Fire now so the x8/x8/ is already in play.

It's 2013 Micro-stutter shouldn't be an issue... Most graphically intensive games this year or later will be SLI/X-fire required to run at Max settings, so eventually him and lots of people with single cards will still have to run Dual cards... I know No single card apart from the Titan runs crysis 3 at max settings, but x-fire 7850 will be close to a stock Titans performance.

I say go x-fire 7850's. I run x8 x8, and my GPU's are not bottle-necked. If you can't go X-fire, then go 670 (big loss IMO) "for the same price"...

true and with a solid overclock on a good processor it's almost nonexistent..
but still there.

I say go for the stronger single GPU now and then SLi or CF-X them later.
so 670 or 7970.
