i am not saying the 660TI is a bad buy or any other gpu, for that matter. what i am trying to do is to differentiate ocn to other sites. bs comparisons will get the gullible, especially reviews that are old.

btw, physics score affects the graphics score, in case you are not aware.

Firestrike 7950 1100/1575

thuban at 4GHz: 7000

i7 at 4.5: 7300
But then my gpu score doesn't increase when I overclock my cpu:(

Nothing is heated up biggrin.gif . I respect you for your opinion, and of course you are free to express it .
But performance is a measurable matter and must be based on analytical facts. Opinions cannot change proven facts . For example it is self-evident that GTX Titan is significantly faster than a 7950. If ones opinion is that a 7950 is better of course performance is not one of them, but is based on other things in the eyes of the beholder tongue.gif.

As for your second concern, Yes if I were in India I will easily choose the GTX 660 over HD 7850, since it is the better card overall at the same price, however that is not the case in the US when there are better deals on HD 7950s when compared to GTX 660 Ti's.

That's why I wish I lived in the U.S. My gtx 650ti was around 20$ cheaper than the 7790.

some games will behave like some synthetic benchmarks. heaven and valley are like BF3 SP where cpu has less influence. BF3 MP, a fast cpu and number of cores matter like in 3DMark benches.

the amount of oc also matters. the greater the gap the better results such as from 4GHz to 4.7GHz in some cpus. this is assuming temps are in check.

Only my overall score increases. My gpu score remains the same even after a 1Ghz overclock on my cpu.
