  1. gtx 560>6850>6790.. gtx 560 is way better than 6790 hd.
    i dont know if with your resolution you can max bf3 with 6790hd but maybe you ll can. how many ram do you have?
  2. GTX560 = HD6870 on performance! @ Your resolution though HD6790 would do well http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graphics-performance,3063-8.html

    you're either an nvidia fan boy or you messed up the point you wanted to make or you're brain dead or . . which is it ?

    The 560 is faster than a 6790. Did you maybe read the post wrong and think it a 6970 that was being discussed ?


    Mactronix :)

    6790 is faster than gtx 560 , but it has lower texel and pixel rate

    I suggest you go and take a look at some gaming benchmarks, which there are none of in the link you provided,so quite how you think linking it and claiming the 6790 is faster is quite simply beyond me.
    Take a look at this and get back to me

    On a side note if you are going to post statements regarding cards performance levels please in future make sure you know what you are talking about.
    Misleading incorrect statements, even posted in error as a mistake help nobody. ;)

    Well sorry if I made a mistake :) , I thought that memory bandwidth is a measure for the card speed


    By the way there's something which I told u before , told u that 6790 has lower pexel rate which drops fps with high res "which I don't have " .... I mean gtx 560 will not be affected by a high resolution because of the pexel rate , but with low resolutions as mine both will be similer and I think 6790 will be faster because of the bandwidth memory which is higher

    You provided me with benchmarks of high res which are stronger than 6790 but am talking about the low one as mine
    Please reply and thank you very much for your interest , and sorry if I said something wrong am new in this but also have some information ;)
  15. the 560 will be more powerful.

    it would also be nice to know the price you pay for these cards as well as comparing them to the 6850 and the 6870.

    With my resolution I think I don't need stronger card than 6790 , and also I have limited budget ^^I already can't buy gtx 560 at this time but now I have the 6790 price and I c that there's no need to my a stronger card as it works fine with my res
  17. If you like the 6790, there's a 6850 at the same price right now on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908
  18. Thank you guys for your help , told you before that my budget is limited and I have the 6790 price only and in my country the 6850 still more expensive than the other and am going to buy it this week
    On YouTube I found a guy has the same pc of mine but with higher resolution and this card worked very good,so am sure that it will work well on my pc
    Thank you all for your help :)
