So your claming that the boost performs like a 660ti since thats the card closet to the 580 (better in some areas and worse in others)

Alos for suggestion, 580 if you have a 650 watt psu.

Also, do you think that the lower vram would be a problem especially if I'm running larger resolutions/dual monitors?

You will have driver support for 580 for many years to come. don't worry about that.

For 1080p 1.5GB is enough, for multi-monitor it's not.

Thanks man! But looks like one of my worries came true - I don't think the 580 is available from my local retailers no more since most of them only stock the 6-- range. Any suggestion on the choice between the 650Ti Boost and 7850?

I would pick 7850. It's conventionally clocked so can OC very high and will perform better then OC'ed 650ti boost

580 can OC as well. it's default clock is 770 and can reach 900 no problem with a small voltage bump (mine is @940MHz).

I've read rave reviews about the 650Ti Boost punching above the 7850 - but I've also read reviews which benchmark the 7850 above the 650Ti Boost. For what it's worth, the 650Ti Boost is actually a good $50SGD more than the 7850 (I'm comparing the Asus AS GTX650 TI DCII Boost OC/2G and PowerColor ATI HD 7850 PCS+ 2GB prices).

Anyways thanks guys for the input, keep it coming please! The GPU selection is really the most headache-y part of the build thus far, everything else is pretty undisputed in it's price bracket. I'm so torn between choices I'm considering sticking with my close to 4 year old HD3850 - that card has performed amazingly well all these years, although it's becoming finicky lately.

Well, just keep in mind that those reviews are comparing 7850 @860MHz vs 650ti boost @980MHz
