MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC v. 560 TI

Hey guys,
I am just building a new computer ( games + HD editing movies ) and I was wondering which card would be better. My plan is to buy CPu I5 2550k, and I am not sure what graphic card would be better. MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC or nvidia gtx 560 TI ?

What do you think? Any other ideas?

Thanks!

  1. Bazy.......Depends on what games you want to play. I am going to buy the 560 Ti Twin Frozr cuz of its price (MSI $200) and it plays Battlefield 3 on High with good frame rates. But like inzone said, the 7850 is a step up....but it comes down to price for me. I'd have to spend another $60 to get the 7850.

    With that said, if you're not in a hurry to buy then if your willing to wait then you could buy one of Nvidia's new platform cards (Kepler). They will be better than the (Fermi) series, but when can we buy them? don't know.

    If you only plan on buying a i5 Sandy Bridge why not upgrade to Ivy bridge for the same price?

    The 7850 is definitely superior to a 560Ti. It performs similar to a 570.

    This shows the performance of the 560Ti, 7850, 570 and others to compare how the perform.
