GTX 550 Ti vs. GTX 650 vs. HD 7770

I am planning on upgrading to a new graphics card within the next few weeks. They are all priced pretty similarly and I am wondering what would be the best choice. I plan on playing games like BF3, Skyrim, and Fallout on these cards.

Here is what I am considering...

EVGA 650: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00966IU4M/?tag=pcpapi-20

Sapphire Radeon HD 7770: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100358ocl

EVGA 550 ti:

If I am way off with these cards, can you suggest the best card with my $120 budget? Thanks

  7. I don't know. I get:

    The connection was reset
    The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
  8. I will also agree, go for the 650ti. http://amzn.to/159Kjf9
  9. My response (editted it) to a very simular post about an hour ago about the 550ti vs the 650.

    An Alternative would be the Newer AMD 7770. If you look at the top of the Link (Heading GPU12) you can select which two GPUs to compare. Higher FPS, only slightly more power – 250W which is only 19W more than 650 but 36 Watts lower than 550 ti

    This link shows FPS for a LARGE number of Games and at various Resolutions. NOTE: Not many game at 1920 x 1200 (16:10)

    Performance vs Cost, Based on US Newegg prices, Unless $20 is a deal breaker then the 7770 is a clear winner.

    Added would agree the 650ti would be better than the 7770

    But then you also get into for just a little more than the 660ti you have the 7850 BUT 7850 jumps cost upto $170->$200:
