I'm in the process of building a completely new build and was going to get a MSI 7850 Frozr for the graphics card. I have been thinking about it and think I would prefer an nVidia card as, although I haven't had a gaming PC for a long time, I have always preferred their cards and drivers to AMD and think I would like to be able to utilise the PhysX they offer.
My question is what is the nearest card from nVidia performance wise to the 7850? I don't want it offer less performance than the 7850 so probably the next step up from nVidia that is as close to the price range of the 7850 as possible.
HD7850 is a great combination of power and efficiency with great OCing potential. nvidia has not released the new cards to compete with this yet.
A GTX670/660 if that's what they will be called would be what I'd wait for if you have to have nvidia.
Ok thanks, I'll probably wait and see what the 660 and 670Ti offer and if not, go with the 7850.
The 570 is already out and a better performer than the 7850 today; well above what any overclock on a 7850 would give you.
If you're considering a 670, considering the pricing on last gen products, you're probably going to be looking at a $400-450 price tag. Also, going by previous gen release pricing, a 660 will run $300-350 and may offer the same performance as 570 you can get today for $300.
