nope - i already have the deal.

buy a 7790 for $150, sell the bioshock code for $35 and then the card for $125 and pocket $10.

after i do that 100 times, i'll buy a TITAN!

Nope. Power consumption affects component prices and noise.

It's quieter than the 7850/7870



idle is the same story.

3rd party coolers added to AMD cards also add costs.

These are AMD reference coolers.

See any review that discusses the models and their MSRPs, TPU for example.
Based on the amount of cards that have been sold (steam survey) people obviously either don't care or prefer NV's stuff.

Great, where are the benchmarks?

And they're not the highest rated games. Try something like Kotor 1, HL2 etc. And even then, completely subjective. The people giving the ratings are giving their own opinion on the game.

Pretty tough to compare your examples to games that have been out <2 weeks and <1 day. Gaming sites and forum goers seem to agree though that Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite are 2 of the best games to be released in a long time. Chances are gamers are going to want to play them. wink.gif

your reaching for minor straws....

power consumption? you think AMD beats Nvidia in this department, when in fact, there are multiple examples of NVIDIA getting 20-40% more performance per watt than AMD. BUT apparently perf/watt doesn't matter in those situations.

You act as if tombraider and bioshock are the best games ever! Why? Because AMD is giving them to you? If I recall, Hawken was something that OCN has been waiting for sense its first public appearance. Secondly, I personally do not like bioshock. It's just not for me. Tombraider is great too....yet that's best experienced on NVIDIA...SHOCKER

1GB 650 Ti boost still performs right behind a 7850 for less $$$

7790 is only a little $ cheaper, however, it's too weak to hold up with any respectable visuals at 1080p

The reason why I am iffy is that I would have to make it a safe overclock because I don't want it to BSOD in one game but not the other and so forth. Since the 650 Ti Boost would be left alone it shouldn't BSOD on him.

If it becomes unstable or degrades and more voltage is needed, I would have to go over to my parent's house and fix it. I have a busy schedule and wouldn't be able to get to his PC as soon as I would like. That is my concern.

the HD 7850 cards can run at 1.05 ghz easily at stock volts. its only when you want to push higher that you need maybe voltage tweaking and a bit more work.

AMD's game bundles add a tremendous amount of value to the their cards, and these are very popular titles that gamers will more than likely be interested in.

Plus, I believe I listed quite a few benefits already but let's go through them again:

- Better performance (first-hand knowledge on this one)

- More stability in frame time testing

- Smaller form factor

- Hard launch (versus the paper launch of the HD 7790)

- Better perf / $ ratio

It's hard to understand what you are trying to compare here. The 7850 has higher performance and lower power consumption, but you are referring to the 7790 being a paper launch. Yet the 7790's competition is the 650 1GB and the 650 2GB is the 7850. Seems like a lot of intentional confusion floating around! wink.gif

My GTX 670 is in RMA right now, so I might purchase the 650ti Boost as a "backup" card for now, then I'll transfer it to my other computer that has an HD 4670.

I'm wondering if the 650ti boost has the same overclocking capability as the 650ti? I haven't read every review site so I don't know which ones actually overclocked but I would think it would give the 7850's overclock at least some competition if the 650ti boost can overclock as much as the 650ti.

EDIT: I just checked a few review sites, and it looks like the 650ti boost can overclock nicely. Too bad there aren't a lot of comparisons to an OC 7850.

The GTX 660 was running $230 or so til now when Nvidia did the price drop on the mid range GTX 650 Ti (non boost) and GTX 660.

I am interested in the GTX 650 Ti Boost overclocked performance relative to the legendary overclocking of the HD 7850. Most reviews put it at +10 or 11% OC.

when I play on my 670 FTW, I feel like my gaming experience is hindered because of my limited bus-width frown.gif in fact I'm only 66% as happy as I could've been if I had opted for a slower 7950 frown.gif


- see where I'm going with that?

also, there's nothing legendary about the 7850.....
that term is reserved for cards like the 8800GT or 9800 radeon Pro (my first upgrade smile.gif )
