Can't decide 7950 or GTX 770 - Page 3

post #21 of 46
if you are not going to sli/cf - i myself dislike also! Get the best card you can for your money, will the money on a water block justify a better card ?


rdr09 - ' but the 7950 is still overkill for 1080 ' what planet are you on?

What no aa, no anti..... at 1280x720 he may get 60fps with vsynch lachen.gif

Can't really compare the 2 IMO, the 770 is better. Is it worth the price difference? Maybe, maybe not.

If you want to save some cash, definitely get the 7950 and OC like no other.

If you just want something more powerful out of the box, 770. Will still OC like a beast as well.

7950 is still very hard to beat when it comes to the price.

mars. i use 1080 with hd7770 ($85) just fine. i use the 7970 ($364) to max out BF3.

edit: that hd 7770 plays FC3 at 1080 smoothly. the game came free with it.

+1
and depending on which model GTX 770 I might pay the price for what I want and not settle,
even if the second option is still very descent.

The only thing with that is that you might be VRAM limited by then (depending on what you call "not enough horsepower").
This!

2Gb is adequate for 1080p & all this talk about being VRAM limited using 2Gb @ 1080p is soooooooooooooooo overated & tired tiredsmiley.gif

For medium settings, maybe, but I think the majority of us here want to play on much higher settings when upgrading to a new card.

several years back I had a GTX 460 768MB @ 1080p and I remember after benching Cinebench I immediately sold and upgrade to a GTX 560 SC
and it ran through Cinebench where the 768MB would stutter.
but like I said that was 3 years ago or so.
post #29 of 46

i am debating this right now myself. I can get a 7950 for 269.99 and the 770 is 400 I am just not sure its worth the extra price of $130.00
