More about buying graphic card
  1. if you're buying a new system next year why would you not want a "big" card now? it will offset the expense next year.

    your processor sucks, so no matter what you do it won't make a difference. at your current resolution you should get a card with 2gigs of vram.

    and I bet you don't have much of a power supply.... what is it?
  2. when i will buy new system i will get best cards of that time but now i dont have to much money i just want a good card so i can spend my time playing games..
    yes i also have to change power suply.
    the pc i have is best available in here other are to expensive so i just have to use it..
    so what should i do now?
    buy a new card or change my pc now?
  3. you should be able to do better than a 6870. keep your eyes open for a better deal.........

    what card do you have now? what is the power supply? how much will that $180 grow by Christmas time?
  4. Can't say without knowing the PSU and either way that CPU is gonna bog you down.
  5. For 200$ you can get a hd 7870.

    For 170$ you can get the asus hd 7850 dc2,very good deal,very quiet,very cool.

    You will need atleast a 400w psu from a good brand...but i think you have a low quality one...
  6. +1. Also there are gtx 660s which are around 180 dollars.
  7. i have an integrated nvidia gt 9100 256mb card..
    my psu is norml 300watt ..
  8. will 7000 series work on my motherboard?
    i have simple pcie x 16

    Yes they can but your 300 watt can be a problem.
  10. it will grow upto 230$ at august

    With that i would suggest buying an hd 7850 and a good 500w psu for around 40 dollars
  12. ok one more question
    is this card good for future?
    what if i buy this card and in future when i buy my new pc i get another card of same model and crosfire them..
    will it give best performance??? on 1080p

    If you are going to crossfire i would much rather go with nvidia's sli since crossfire on amd cards have very high latencys and are more prone to micro stuttering. A single hd 7850 is a good card. It can overclock to the performance of an hd 7870. If you are going to get multiple cards i would much rather go with the nvidia equivalent. (gtx 650 ti boost)
  14. 650 ti is also nice card..
    so what you suggest i buy nvidia 650 ti or ati 7850??
    650 ti is in 180$ 1gb but ati 7850 same price but 2 gb..

    these are the advantages of both cards.
    650 ti boost- Same performance as an hd 7850, can be found cheaper
    hd 7850- Lower power consumption, A very good overclocker
    If you are willing to overclock, you are better off getting an hd 7850. If you are thinking of getting multiple cards in the future you are better off getting a gtx 650 ti boost.
  16. Gtx 650ti boost is 10%-25% slower then hd 7850 in some games.
    Dont go crossfire or sli.
    Stick with one card, less problems,less heat, no microstutter issue.

    A hd 7850 can run bf 3 ultra at 1080p ~40-60 fps
  17. yes i have decided i m buying gtx 650 ti boost i will make sli in future..
    many many thanks to everyone who helped me..

    tom's hardware and techpowerup ,anandtech,hardocp and pc gamer also got the same results.

    If you want a single graphics card get an hd 7850 and overclock it.
    If you are going to get multiple cards get a gtx 650 ti boost, they scale rather well.
  23. You win !
    Buy the gtx 650ti boost
  24. i want multiple cards am going with gtx 650 ti
    now i buy one and after some time i will buy another one

    This is what you can expect with sli. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_650_Ti_Boost_SLI/

    Both have the same performance but if you are going to use multiple cards go with the gtx 650 ti boost
  28. what if im using singl card now?
  29. 650ti no good......also can't sli them...... and please stop posting those stupid graphs...

    " That, in particular, brings me to my first complaint about the N650Ti, and any GTX 650Ti for that matter. There's no GPU boost. All of the video cards about the 650Ti got a turbo boost, even the GTX 660. And the GTX 650Ti is built on the same die! For me, personally, that's a pretty big drawback, and I'd probably be more likely to fork over the extra $50 or $60 it will take me to get a GTX 660 for the extra CUDA Cores, the 192-bit memory bus, and the GPU boost.

    The other reason I'd probably go ahead and splurge on the GTX 660 over the GTX 650Ti is the fact that six months or so down the road I could greatly increase my graphics performance simply by buying another GTX 660 and pairing the two in SLI. I'd say that would be a great idea for the GTX 650Ti, but wait, you can't use SLI with the 650Ti. Again, the two cards are built on the same die. Many of the GTX 650Ti cards will even have the same 2GB of memory as the GTX 660, although the N650Ti Power Edition does not. I just can't understand why you wouldn't allow pairing through SLI. "

  30. Get gtx 650ti boost.

    Gtx 650 ti BOOST: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-650ti-boost
  32. what's in the link?

    Single card performance is the same between the hd 7850 and 650 ti boost.

    Nvidia site.
  35. should i buy 660? 2gb?
  36. Honey BaBa said:

    That is also good. It is like 10 frames faster than the boost and can be found for 190 dollars. A good deal if you ask me.
  37. i also think its a good card for me now
    i will manage to buy it
  38. If you have the money to buy a gtx 660, better buy the sapphire hd 7870
