I will be upgrading my cards pretty soon hopefully but ill tell you this much so far they have handled every game at max settings so I cant really complain about them you know? Didnt mean to be a smart ass with you but a little competition can be a good thing you know?
I totally agree. I have owned a Radeon 6770 and overclocked it to the Radeon 6850 performance. The direct competition for the Gtx 650Ti would be the Radeon 7790. Both go head to head. Your cards will do fine. A major fault with the Gtx 650Ti is that it lacks SLI. It was Nvidia's way of lowering cost and providing a powerful gpu. The main reason why I bought this card was because it was cheaper than the Radeon 7790 and that surprised me. However, the 7790 does have Crossfire support. I also bought it as it was based on the same core as the Gtx 660. As of now the 6970's in SLI should be able to pull of any game. Amd gpu's have a lot of raw power. The problem was that there was never any software to complement them. There were only significant improvements in software with regard to the 7 Series cards. The 6850,6870,6950 and 6970 are extremely powerful but when run in Crossfire mode their performance reduces slightly because of bad optimization and no proper crossfire drivers. What got me frustrated with AMD was that for every game released there was some problem and we always had to wait for better drivers otherwise some games were unplayable. Like Metro Last light. With those updates the performance for Amd cards almost doubled itself. I'm still a fan of AMD. Just wanted a change where I wouldn't have to worry about low performance in the next game released due to drivers.
