  1. All three are good. Whichever has the best price/specs ratio.
  2. You won't be able to overclock 650ti boost VGAs by a lot, so I suggest getting one with best cooling solution. Based on reviews, either pick the Gigabyte one ( with Windforce 2x cooler ) or MSI one ( with twin Frorz III cooler ). I myself used some Twin frorz ii and iii VGAs and found them really quiet during gaming, so I'd take the MSI one.
  3. Zotac is awesome too if you like the orange look.

    I see. Thanks for your reply. But what about HD7850 guys?
    Do you think that would actually beat 650Ti Boost?

    Speaking about coolers. If I don't plan on overclocking, should I buy aftermarket coolers?
    BTW cpu = i5-3470
  8. If you have the desire to overclock your card, then even GTX660 will lose to HD7850. But if you don't, then GTX 650ti boost is considered as a strong competitor against HD7850, due to almost the same performance with lower price tag.

    Yeah I never planned to overclock, but what if the HD7850 is almost the same price as the GTX 650Ti Boost
    Both are from MSI Twin Frozr.
    The price difference is like $6?!

    If they include games with the 7850, then pick it. If they don't, tough call then, roll a dice :bounce: 7850 one should be cooler and quieter, depends on the power consumption of both card.

    Ok thank you madness XD
    Guess I'll go with the HD7850.
    But what I'm worried about is the negative remarks on HD7850 running Starcraft 2.
    I'm quite the SC2 fan lol

    SC2 favors nvidia card a lot. I meant, A LOT. If SC2 and other Blizzard games are going to be your main games then get 650ti boost.

    HAHA i see. Too bad then. Wanted the free Bioshock or DMC that comes with the HD7850. But I guess I'll stick with 650Ti boost.
