Hi,

I currently have an Asus ATI 6770, which is pretty good for games, but I'd like to be able to play Skyrim and BFBC2 at highest settings, so I was wondering which card out of the following 2 I should get.

http://www.dabs.com/products/asus-geforce-gtx-560-ti-90... This one is an OC'ed GeForce GTX 560 Ti by Asus.

http://www.dabs.com/products/xfx-ati-radeon-7770-hd-112... This one is an OC'ed ATI 7770 by XFX

If I sell my current GPU I can get about £50, so these cards are about £100, if you can recommend any other cards for a similar price point, please do!

Thanks!

GTX 560 Ti is the best you can get for that price!

The 560 Ti is a lot more of a performance boost from the 6770 than the 7770, which performs about at the equal of a 6850, or under it as rated by PassMark: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html while the 560 Ti is an equivalent to the 6950 and it performs amazingly, I have one so I know, I have never seen skyrim go below 57 fps on my computer with the 560 Ti and every thing maxed out so i would say definitely go for the 560 Ti

Assuming your PSU is of good quality (and actually capable of outputting what's on its label), I agree with matter37.

It should work. 34A on 12V rail is enough.

you really won't get much increase in performance in skyrim with a gpu upgrade as the game is very cpu limited.

thats a very good price for the 560 ti tho. Go for it since it will give you better performance in bfbc2.
