Final decision

Ok so I'm pretty much ready to order. Now some people have been telling me to get this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/aMZ8 And some have been telling me to get this one: http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/aNJ2
The only difference between them is the video cards. Which one offers better performance for video games?

More about final decision
  1. The 7850 will give you better FPS m8 GL with the build.
  2. Anyone else have input? Or is the 7850 the definite way to go?
  3. EVGA 012-P3-1571-KR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    $279.99 and a $25 rebate makes the final price $254.99

    For an additional $5 over the cost of the 7850 you can get this card for $254.99 after rebate and will be better than either card that is selected in those setups. The thing you have to realize is that the cost of the 560Ti is about $50 less than the 7850 because it's one level below the 7850. So naturaly the 7850 will give you better performance , but if you take a Nvidia card that is on the same level as the 7850 which is the 570 and now the cost is about the same with the rebate , the 570 is a better card than the 7850.

  4. When you OC the 7850 to 1kHz, it matches the GTX 580 in performance while using a lot less power, so I'd keep the 7850.

    I don't think the card will fit in my case: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/landing/haf912/home.php?page=specs It says that I will have 10.6 " to put in my video card if I'm reading it right. The card was 11.5 "
  6. It will fit. I have that case.
