Hey im planing to build a low budget gaming pc and that what i already decided to buy:
fx 6300
msi 970a-g43
and so on and i'm looking for the best graphicscard for my money. i can get:
gtx 650 ti boost 1 gb: 136€
gtx 650 ti boost 2gb : 150€
gtx 660 : 166€
hd 7850 1gb: 142€
hd 7850 2gb: 156€

i dont mind about amd or nvidia, neither about the games cause i dont get them at my shop and i know the gtx 660 will give the best performance but i just want the best performance for my money. and i would oc the 7850 since since its potenial is quite big

i'll play at 1920x1080, is it neccesary to get a 2 gb version.

thanks for the hel

Best performance: GTX 660.
Best price/performance: GTX 650 Ti Boost.

If you are playing at a single 1080p monitor, then 1GB VRAM is fine.

The 7850 overclocks like a beast. I was able to push mine as far as msi afterburner would allow.

The HD 7850 overclocks better, but in terms of performance, it doesn't beat the GTX 650 Ti Boost by much with both at max overclock. The GTX 650 Ti Boost will still be the best price/performance card. And it is also a very good card to SLI because it scales amazingly well.

A GTX 660 with a free copy of Metro Last Light for only 10 Euros more should be your priority. The GTX 660 comes in at a healthy 10% more performance than the other two and allows you to enable GPU-accelerated PhysX. Since Metro Last Light is a PhysX game, you're guaranteed to use it.

Yeah with out the free games just for for the cheaper one, and while I would the 1GB model will probably be fine for 90% of the gaming you do I would spend the extra cash and a 2Gig model if you plan to SLI/xfire (too lazy to look up your board for support) then the 2Gig will be a much better investment.

passmark shows the 7850 edging out 650 ti boost at stock. the 660 beats both. 7850 is 50 dollars cheaper than a 660

the 660 and 7850 will play all games at high/ultra comfortably

650 boost high

regardless all 3 are high endish cards, unless you are an extremist and only a 7970 or titan will suffice

my opinion, go 7850 and oc it out the tower

Interesting chart there, vrgadin.

It only shows results for something called "Passmark", which shows the performance of the GTX 670 scoring 300 points more than the GTX 690. Would you say that is a good basis for putting forth as the main evidence for a recommendation?
