GTX 570 OR HD 7870

Which one? (low budget)

EVGA Gtx 570 1280MB - 250€

Sapphire HD 7870 2GB - 300€


the HD 7870 is a bit better than the gtx 570 but I'll be playing on a 1080p (1920x1080) and their performance is kinda the same at that resolution.

the gtx 570 is 50€ cheaper too!

More about 7870
  1. The preformace of the 7870 is going to be smother than the 570, even at 1920x1080. This isn't a big deal for older games, but newer ones are going to be quite a bit nicer with the 7870. The 7850 is the card that's more comparable with the 570.
  2. worth 50€ more?

    EDIT
    And if I buy a Hd 7870, which one is the best?
  3. If you have the money and it isn't going to hurt your rent or anything I'd say it is. I'd look around at a couple of sites though, in Canada (and I guess the US too) the two cards are only about $35-$40 more for the 7870.
  4. Found a pretty neat card

    Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB OC (triple fans)

    EDIT
    Worth buying an OC edition? Is it possible to OC a normal card as good as an OC edition?
  5. The Gigabyte card should overclock quite well with that fan if you're looking to do that. You can push the 7870 to 7950 (stock) speeds on a good overclock.
  6. ok, Thanks :)
