Which of the two graphics cards should I choose?

Thinking of either Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2Gb (256 bit) or Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 TI Boost 2Gb (192 Bit)?
The Radeon one is about 76$ more expensive in my country and for me the cheaper it is the better! So would getting the GeForce be a very bad thing or a minor bad thing or would it be even better?

These are the builds I would go for:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/10aar (with Radeon HD 7870)
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/10abO (with GeForce 650 TI Boost) Also keep in mind that the price difference is a lot bigger in my country.

More about graphics cards choose
  1. If you are tight on your fund than go for Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 TI Boost 2Gb, it won't hurt you much. It's a good card in it's price range.

    So you are going for a AMD setup, than I would recommend you Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2Gb. If you go for a INTEL setup than you can choose Geforce 650TI.
  2. the Gigabyte card is the far better card in this selection....I am using that card actually and it runs everything great...http://gpuboss.com/gpus/MSI-GeForce-GTX-650-Ti-Boost-vs-GIGABYTE-Radeon-HD-7870 for a fair comparison

    What??? Why would you get a Nvidia GPU with an Intel GPU? And AMD with AMD?

    AMD GPUs actually work a bit better with Intel because of less of a bottleneck. I see you are new here. Please refrain from spreading misinformation.

    Nvidia and Intel have no affiliation whatsoever.

    Midgetas : Get the GTX650ti since its much cheaper and near the same speed!

    Just now I heard that if I choose an AMD processor and a GTX graphics card - the compatibility will be bad. Is this true? And if so what would be the Radeon equivilant (equivilent? - I dunno English) of the GTX card?

    That is NOT true. A GTX650ti Boost will work fine with an AMD CPU. Get the GTX.

    So basically for my above post: Either card is ok with an AMD processor right?
  8. Correct. Either card is just fine. Just make sure you have a good reliable adequate power supply.

    You can not compare real world performance in a card by using HWCompare or GPUBoss. Neither gives any idea as to real world performance. In this case however the HD7870 is slightly faster but please refrain from using those two sites on this forum.
