would my amd phenom ii x6 1045t bottleneck A GTX 670 - Page 5

post #41 of 48
You guys are making definitive statements, but there isn't one "definitively better" card... Look up benchmarks for the games YOU play, and see which performs better. That's the better card to buy.

Frankly, the 660Ti beats the 7950 in a fair share of games, or ties it, and the 7950 takes the lead in its fair share of games.



HOWEVER

The 7950/7970 STILL have issues with some major stuttering, even with single cards, while Nvidia are literally perfectly smooth in comparison. If you ever intend on getting a second card, get the Nvidia, as I find the AMD in-game stuttering to be so bad as to be unplayable (it gives me migraines).


As good as the 660Ti is, I'd look for a GTX670FTW if I were you; they're a good step forward of BOTH the 660Ti and 7950, and currently you can get them for $350 or so. The FTW, out of the box, is nearly identical to the vanilla 680, and overclocked the 670FTW can keep up with the 680 with a mild OC (for example, my 3DMark11 scores put me ahead of about 50% of the 680 and 7970 submitted scores; that's with 1306core/6924mem...my card will do 1454core/7456mem through benches without issues, I just haven't spent the time running the "gauntlet" yet at those clocks with my CPU/RAM/etc all tuned up for benching).

In fact, even with 2x 670FTW I find that there is no noticeable stuttering, and SLI is considered to be terrible for "smoothness"... However, using the 670FTW SLI and then using a single 7970 Lightning, it's like going from a single card setup to a terribly-optimized dual-card setup, except this time it's the SLI that's smooth and the single card that's all over the place.

I was playing world of tanks on my 1055t mixed with pny gtx 650 and was seeing 70 - 100 fps. This is pretty sweet. On ultra setting 50 - 70 fps did not experience anything different. Actually improvement over i7 m and gt 650 m. Two different horses but I am satisfied.

In fact, even with 2x 670FTW I find that there is no noticeable stuttering, and SLI is considered to be terrible for "smoothness"... However, using the 670FTW SLI and then using a single 7970 Lightning, it's like going from a single card setup to a terribly-optimized dual-card setup, except this time it's the SLI that's smooth and the single card that's all over the place.
The problem with your statement of the GTX 670 FTW editon being faster then the 7950 is a little invalid. Mainly due to the fact that if he got a Gigabyte version of the 7950, its already clocked at 900MHz, and is built for overclocking, right on the package it says its ready for a 10-15% overclock, but its been known to go to 1200MHz. Therefore your point is invalid, spending more on a card thats the same speed or slower then the 7950. Not that Im saying the GTX 670 isnt good, I own one and love it, but I was happier with my 7950.

ok i would talk in proper sentences okay, i was just lazy that day . the thing is i dont want the 660 ti or the 7950 because its over my budget and im not a hardcore gamer im just starting and i think a 660 non TI would be just good enough for me and it is $200 . My mom said her limit is $250 and a 670 is over to much . i think 660 would be perfect and i really dont want a TI version because im paying an extra $100 for slightly better performance and im not planning to sli so i think 660 is perfect

I had a Highly OC'd GTX 680 (1300 core) running with a 3.8ghz X6 (1600T) and it ran like a dream, very little noticeable bottleneck

what stuttering are you talking about?

Read through the thread and you'll find out that the op plays BF3 among other games. that game plays better with amd.biggrin.gif
