GTX 570 HD Or Asus Radeon HD 7850

I know this is been asked many times before but which out of these 2 would you pick? The reason i ask is because the GTX570 on this site only has a 733 MHz Core but the Radeon has a 870Mhz coe

EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD 1280MB GDDR5

ASUS AMD Radeon HD 7850 DirectCU II OC 2048MB GDDR5

Many Thanks

  1. GTX 570 is a bit faster than HD 7850, you can close the gap in performance difference by OCing the HD 7850. It runs cooler, quieter, and less power hungry than GTX 570 and as i guess it costs less.
  2. 7850
  3. The GTX570 is only 15USD more
  4. 7850 again. Newer, about as fast, and less power hungry and less prone to heat. Plus the asus card has excellent cooling (7870s cooler does duty here also), even if it's close to the reference 7850
  5. They trade blows as other people have stated here but obviously for asking this question you're not a fan boy of either company. I have heard that Nvidia cards have better drivers and also don't forget physx and cuda on Nvidia cards, but AMD support eyefinity your choice
  6. also, you can oc hd 7850 as high as 1150mhz easily.
  7. you can also get this one

    good cooling + oc nice price.:)

    between gtx 570 and hd 7850 get the hd 7850 for less price with all that thing that has been said above get this brand one just overclock that card you will get bit better performance then gtx 570.

    if ulike gtx 480 u can get that card also which is littlebit faster then gtx 570 just the fact is that it is a bit hotter and power eater but that doesnt matter alot.:)
  8. Thanks for all the replies guys appreciate it.

    I live in the UK and we don't have many buying options here things are dam expensive so basically its between these 2 cards. The 7870 is out of my price range :( its about 100 USD more than the 7850.

    The 7850 is only $15 cheaper then GTX 570 don't know if its worth paying the extra $15?

    I'm leaning towards the 7850 just because its a newer card.

  9. look at this review at higher resolutions the hd 7850 performs pretty close to gtx 570 so saving $15 will worth.:),3148-6.html
  10. Thanks sunnk, i'm going to throw a spanner in the works! I've just spotted i can get the Asus 1GB GeForce GTX 560TI DirectCUII PCI-E for $40 cheaper the then 7850 ? should i go for this?!
  11. yeah you should if u r geting that card cheaper then yes because it has very good cooling and overclocking and the gtx 560ti is a very good overclcoker.there is not that much big difference between the gtx 560ti and hd 7850 about 5-10% difference overclock your gtx 560ti and then you will get about hd 7850 performance and gtx 570 performance.:)

  12. Arghh so many choices 7850 it is then!
  13. whichever you got in cheaper price that will be an good buy.:)
  14. Dont go for the 560 ti (even the direct CII version), its been made redundant essentially by the 7850, unless the price is an absolute concern.
