  1. i recommend you to get the gtx 660 ti because its more future proof, and it has way better drivers than amd
  2. highly recommend 7950 or 670 660 ti not worth it imo.
  3. yea i think ill probably get 7950, from what i've seen is that is competes with 660 ti at stock speeds but kills it in the overclock
  4. sounds good enjoy!I would get this one it's a bit better runs cooler has no coil wine SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100352VXSR Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

  6. Cosminrules is right about the drivers, and games generally run better on nVidia hardware (interms of consistent performance where the framerate isn't up and down all the time and interms of rendering correctly without glitches). If you go with nVidia, I'd recommend either saving yourself £50 on a GTX660 (since it's barely any slower) or putting an extra £50 on it for a GTX670 (since it has a considerable performance lead). The GTX660 Ti is a bit pointless when it's priced exactly half way between the GTX660 and GTX670 yet performs much closer to the GTX660.
  7. +1 for hd 7950 :D
    As bigcyo1 said gtx 660 ti not worth it.....

    7950 will perform better at higher resolutions and at higher AA.....
    hd 7950 has a 384 bit bus and a higher memory bandwidth as compared to the 192 bit gtx 660 ti

    I'd definitely go for the hd 7950
  8. the thing about the 670 is that the cheapest is $600 which is reference and the cheapest HD 7950 which is the gigabyte windforce one is only $470

    True, but you can't really compare a GTX670 to an HD7950 interms of performance! GTX670 is much closer to the HD7970. GTX660 Ti would be a much fairer comparison (though I still wouldn't recommend it over the GTX660 since it's only slightly better than the GTX660 but priced exactly halfway between that and the considerably faster GTX670). GTX660 or GTX670 are both strong bets and should serve you well for a long time.
  10. my budget has no increased and its now a toss up between the 670 or the 7970
  11. Lol... well we will just half to agree to disagree on that one i have not come across no 7950 that could beat my 670 but a 7970Gh z that mop my 670 no doubt about it

    Well THe OP has changed his budget :D
    whats ur resolution? and at what settings do u wanna play??

    I'll recommend getting 7970
    Here is a benchmark b/w 7970 and 670

    And here is one of ghz edition
    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/598?vs=618
  13. 1080p, best setting with all games at least 60fps
  14. 7950 can also do the work or u but if u want to buy a 7970 its ur choice, buy the ghz one

    There is no such term as Future-proof.. all it will take is the next DX or a new game to be released and the future is here.. I've learnt this the hard way..


    As it so happens the 660 ti is the way to go.. I have done a bucket load of reaserch on this card and I too will be buying one soon.. :sol:
