I'm looking at a new Graphics card for my PC for Max: £200

I think I have it narrowed down to these two:

- MSI Geforce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC Edition- £176
-Product here-
-Tom's Hardware review here-

- And MSI HD 7850 Twin Frozr III OC Edition- £199
-Product here-
-Tom's Hardware review here-

Now despite the ~£25 price difference, in the Tom's hardware benchmarks of both cards you can see that game-game they are pretty much interchangeable. I will be using which ever card I get to run a 3D monitor at times for Films etc.

Which one should I get?

I would say go for the hd7850 if you can, as it beats the gtx 570 in certain benchmarks, and can match the gtx580 in others. It is also newer than the gtx560ti, uses and uses less power. So I would get the hd7850 or wait for nvidia to release the cards following the gtx680. I would not go for the older gtx560ti.

Hope this helps!

I would go for the HD 7850. It takes less power than a GTX560Ti, and it's a bit faster.

PS: The links are mixed up, and one leads to a 404.

Sorry about that :$- it was late :p 

And thanks everyone I'll be going for the HD 7850- also has PCIe 3.0- which will take advantage of my new Z77 motherboard.
