AMD 7790 vs AMD 7850 vs GTX 650TI (Low Budget GFX)

Have asked around and these cards are fitting my budget.







I have been told on this community to go with the 7850 Option, but I like the idea of extra cooling?

Or is the 7850 core ok with just 1 fan?

Will be purchasing in the near future. I play normally at 1280x720 res.

Mainly for Rome 2 TW. I suppose I could wait till prices drop a little?

The 7850 2GB is the best option, brings good performance at even high resolutions and the extra gigabyte of memory allows you to crank up Anti-Aliasing and details without running out of memory and getting large drops in frame rate like I used to get with Battlefield 3 and Skyrim on my old GTX 560 1GB (used to run out of VRAM).

Im really just looking at these specific cards, the Ti Boost in UK is around £140, i didn't really want to spend more than £120

The GTX 650 Ti 1 GB (non boost variant) is supposed to drop to $130 in the US due to the Boost's release. Otherwise, in the AMD camp you'd be looking at a HD 7770. That will be around $130 too. The 650 Ti 1 GB will beat the 7770 though.
