This one has 2 fans but only 1 GB and overclocks better I have heard : http://www.flipkart.com/sapphire-amd-ati-hd-7850-1gb-oc...




This one is 2 GB but only has 1 Fan and is of Palit brand I have never heard of them before and I am sure this one does not overclock core better : http://www.flipkart.com/palit-nvidia-geforce-gtx-660-2-...







Which one shall I buy? I play games like Rome 2 Total War and it is enhanced for AMD. I do not play FPS.
I will be gaming on a 1900 x 1080 resolution on a 32 inch TV using HDMI cable.

Also will any of those cards work with my computer?

My specs are :

Gigabyte Motherboard : http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
Intel i7 2600 at 3.4 Ghz clock.
8 GB RAM at 1333 mhz.
2 TB HDD.
PSU 220 volts 29 amp - 6380 watts.

Those two cards are my only option and I am confused please help.

Get the GTX 660. Don't listen to huilun he's been trolling a lot of people lately. I would recommend a 7850 ONLY if you get the 2gb card, warna the 660 is your best bet. It's slightly better than the 7850 and it's 2gb also.

Btw since you're from India why don't you buy the R9-270X from www.mdcomputers.in @15,500 rs because flipkart charges way more for graphic cards.
They are very reliable [not as much as flipkart] but the 270X will be a huge step-up from both those cards for only 1300RS more.

2 of my friends had ordered from mdcomputers.in and i can vouch for them.

Are MD Computers to be trusted and do they have a store in Delhi? I am thinking of buying from their store.

As far as i know, never heard a bad review about them. You can call them and ask them the details and they'll be ready to help you. No it's not available in delhi :(
