hi im lookin 4 a good video card for up to 500 bucks that could play new games like TOR and guild wars 2 ect with at least medium+ graphics on a scale of 1 to 10 speed needs to be a 8. was thinking about the evga nvidia geforce gtx 560 ti and was wondering if amd radeon 7970 was as good as they say.
well your requirements are really low for your price range.
you can probably max guild wars 2 with a 560ti as mmos are the most graphically intensive games. The 7970 is good but its is expensive and might not offer much for what you need it for over the 560 ti.
the 6950 and 6870 should be able to handle swtor on maximum settings with some anti-aliasing enabled playing at 1080p. for some reason swtor prefers amd offerings, so i would go for either the 6950 or the 6870.
