GTX 570 or Radeon 7850

I found a GTX 570 for a bout 20 dollars more than the 7850. I mostly play Bf3 right now and am replacing an EVGA GTX 470. My 470 gets really hot and noisy so looking for something else. I can't pick between the two cards but I think if the 7850 had rebates out already I'd be sold on it but it seems the 570 got a bit more juice going... Any thoughts?

    There's another set of charts you can take a look at.
    You'll see that the two cards will take shots at one another.
    Areas where the 7850 trumps the gtx 570 are load/idle temps and power consumption.
    For some strange reason the 570 will outperform the 7850 even though the ladder has more VRAM.
  2. The new series overclock really well. So if you are comfortable with overclocking your 7850 it'd surely beat the 570 :)
  3. I see a Gigabyte 570 for $260 AR. Same price as the 7850. 10 dollars more than 560ti 448. Being that the 570 and 7850 are the same price...Which one would be the better buy? Based on TomHardware review the 7850 seems to have driver issues with the test cards. Don't know if that still is an issue now or not.
  4. I am too deciding between this two GPU's. 570 seems faster, but I don't know if 1,28GB VRAM is going to be enough for games like BF3 at high/ultra.
  5. At 1920x1080. The game i will be playing is Battlefield 3 which can easily use up to 1,7GB of VRAM. That's why I can't decide.
