The GTS 450 and HD 6750 were lower midrange budget cards when new. | Report abuse 4745454b Graphics card Master January 26, 2012 2:39:38 AM The 8800GTX is actually around 1-3% faster then the 9800GTX+. All of those cards are probably within ~5% of each other. The big advantage you get with the newer cards is they use less power, and better/more features like DX11, etc. | Report abuse DM186 Graphics card Master January 26, 2012 11:29:24 PM Like what everybody else said They are using the benchmarks for the Hierarchy to give you some what of an idea as to how the card fall or lay out. I would use that chart to help me to decide a card. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>How accurate is the hierarchy ?> Related ressources: ForumHow accurate is the Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart?
