560 ti 448 or Radeon HD 7850?

I'm looking to get a new graphics card, and was wondering out of those 2, which is the better one to get? I currently have a GTX 460, but I don't want to SLI. I'm leaning more towards the 7850, but want other peoples opinions on it.

Here are my specs

i5 2500k
8GB ram
1920x1080 res monitor

    here is a relative performance graphic you can check that the 7850 is not so close with the 570.

    on another graphic with the 560 ti 448:

    Here you see that it is closer to the 570 a little better...

    so basically the 560 ti should be better than the 7850, but it still a nice option if you are into multimonitor with a single card, a best option would be a 7870 but between 560ti and 7850 i would go with 560 ti 448...
  3. but the 7850 is $30-40 cheaper and can OC better. It also has more vram. 2GB can be made of use in certain games at 1080p. BF3 uses up to 1.6GB online.

    i agree that a 7870 would be even better though.

  5. Thanks everyone. I wound up getting the 7850. But for some reason, the colors seemed "washed out" like when I'm watching a video, it looks saturated I want to say. Its hard to explain, but it doesn't look like it used to. Would I have to just mess with the settings or something?

    isn't that a monitor problem? did you change monitor? check if your gpu isn'f forcing its screen settings over your monitor settings and remove that. or adjust the colors.
