Help me choose.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So, upgrading from my dead gtx 560 ti from EVGA to a new card. I want to mention I don't care which brand is it (amd/nvidia).

My options so far are like this:
XFX Radeon HD 7850 Double Dissipation 2GB
XFX Radeon HD 7770 Double Dissipation 1GB (2 in crossfire)
Palit Geforce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB
Gainward GTX 660 Golden Sample 2GB

These are the options. I can get all of them at around the same price ( plus or minus 10 bucks ). Currently running a 1920x1200 monitor, and i plan on adding a second small one for productivity.

What u reckon is going to deliver the most performance?

Thanks.

Don't get 7770 crossfire. 1gb is not enough for 1200p and getting two weaker cards is not a good idea.

I can recommend the Gigabyte GTX 650 ti boost. It's a great quiet card for cheap.

+/- $10? go for either the 660 or 7850. those will be considered good replacements to your 560TI.

Thanks for the advice, but I don't think the 650ti boost is better than the 660. As i said I don't care about noise, manufacturer or power consumption, I am looking for performance.

Edit: Posted the same time. Thanks for the advice. Are the 2 cards similar in performance? I would go for the 7850 as it looks to have a better cooler and might overclock higher.

i've got a HD7770 paired with my Phenom 4GHz and plays all my games at 1080 as good as my 7970. mostly medium settings. i'd imagine the 7850 will par or even surpass whatever fps you were getting with the 560Ti. i'd go for it.

The thing looked nice at least, lol.
Is sapphire's version with their Dual-x cooler any better? http://www.cyberport.ro/cumpara/sapphire-technology-radeon-hd7850-2gb-ddr5-pci-e-256bit-hdmi-2dvi-dp-4626020

I have read some reviews on that Double dissipation cooler and seems to be doing it's job as it should. No jet engine noise and nowhere near HOT. I might be going for that one, I just love the looks of it.
