I cant spend more than $350..
And in my country the prices for the above are: 7870 XT - $362 ($12 is fine for me) 660 AMP! - $344
7850 OC - $292
650 Ti Boost - $246
I ruled out 660 Ti because the pricing starts from $430 here..
I want to know if it is worth spending that much for 7870 XT...
Is it better than the Zotac 660 AMP?!
I included the lower end models coz they are a lot cheaper and with not much of a performance drop(7850 OC), and because the 650 Ti boost gives good value for money...
I dont know if im going to overclock or not, but it wouldnt do harm to have a
card with better OCing capabilities. Will it be worth the extra $100 or so if I choose the 7870 XT/660 AMP! over the 650 Ti Boost for the performance I will get??
I hope I get help from all of you here... Im really in a fix..
Get the i5 3570k if your main purpose is gaming. You can save some cash (around $60 in the US).
I wish I could! I already have bought my machine.. just the GPU is left.. I dint get the MSI TF 560Ti 2gb and had ordered it then(last year).. It took too long to ship... I cancelled the order and decided to wait for the 600 series!
I guess Im late again for this series..
A change from college life to corporate life takes a toll on gaming I guess!
I think this gpu will be my last for a long time! I have lots of games waiting to be played and then the current ones too.. This machine should probably be enough to satisfy my gaming needs...
Sadly I have been playing only Dota and Dota 2 in my current machine! Intel HD LOL.
xt is best in the range so its good to go & worth extra money
7870 XT without a doubt.
Im gonna have to agree 7870 xt is definitely the way to go here. Reason being is its based on the tahiti architecture. So its essentially a dumbed down 7950.
Il probably go with the 7870.. I live in Mumbai, India.. im concerned with the prices.. If I was in the US i wudv got FAR better cards at this price...
Im going to the market day after tomorrow..
$120 dollars for XT instead of 650 ti.. dats INR 6000.. i just hope its worth it!
Thanks man.. but im from india!! they dont provide international shipping..
I bought it for ~ $400 (yes.. its shit expensive here...)
the price has increased to around $ 435 now.. due to dollar rise........
