Gigabyte Radeon 7950 3gb vs. Msi Nvidia 660ti PE.

Hi.
I'm looking for a new gpu for my rig.
The most value card's i've found is the Gigabyte 7950 and the Msi 660ti. The problem is, i don't know witch one of them i shoud choose.

So if you guys have some advice for me, please answer in the thread!
I will play lot's of different game's, so i don't think i should have nvidia because of BF3 or radeon for crysis etc,etc.

I will use the Msi Z77 Gaming motherboard, and the only link in english i found was this; http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z77A-G45-GAMING.html .
If you have any other suggestions, i'll be glad for sharing them!

Excuse my bad english, im from Sweden, so i'm not really used to write in english.

  1. Depends on alot of scenarios, but even at 1080p the 7950 will more than likely win. What is your power supply, because you can add a very big chunk of performance to your gaming experience from overclocking the 7950.

    Thank you for your quick answer!
    To be honest, I'm not at all familiar with gpu overclocking, though by power supply can handle it, 650w 80+ bronze certified, either from be quiet! or from XFX, i'm not really sure yet.
    But let's say not overclocked, what card is most "bang for buck"?
  4. Hi. If you OC then get the HD7950. It has a rediculous amount of headroom and stand to gain a lot from an OC.

    The GTX660ti PE is on average a little slower in general. But it really depends on the title as you know.

    That's ancient and you know it. :P

    Anyway... Without OCing neither is great bang for buck, that award goes to an HD7870 LE/XT.

    You realize that there has been a new revision on the 660ti PE and 670PE right? Thanks to the overvolting issue that Nvidia almost sued MSI for?

    So true, no, the new revision does not perform the same as the original PE versions.
  8. Indeed 7870 is an great card, but let's stick to the subject.

    Witch of these two card's would you choose?

    With new drivers and all that?
    7950 sir!

    Neither. The Gigabyte versions are all voltage locked. Look at the Sapphire, HIS or MSI versions of the HD7950.
