  1. At that resolution the 7850 or 560 ti would be plenty to run any game you want maxed smoothly. 7850 produces less heat and uses less electricity, but a 560 ti still isnt a bad choice if you prefer nvidia.

    I really want a graphic card which can give me ultra settings for my resolution and I am not a fanboy of nvidia or ati so i just want a good graphic card for 1-2 years
  3. Either is fine. in my opinion the 7850 is physically a better card, while the 560ti have far better (and mature) drivers. the 7850 will get even better as AMD drivers improve a bit, but if you search around the internet a bit, people have hell updating the AMD drivers once a month...

    so it depends on what you're ok with putting up with... and by "hell updating" I mean something like between 30min-3hrs depending on how far you go
  4. So! ATI Drivers are not good for 7850 right now. but is it still worth buying it ? because i think it is better than 560ti but are the present drivers fine?
  5. Best answer
    yes worth it buying an hd 7850 the drivers will be fixed after some time and the gtx 660ti performance will be same or more or less as the hd 7850 but the performance of gtx 660ti ti will be around hd 7850 in my opinion.:)so get hd 7850 for now.:)

    goodluck.:)

    Hey sunnuk so 660ti will be competing 7850 so it's better to get an 7850 because it comes around 5-6 months and it's waste of time waiting. And can you tell me some good gpu sellers in india who sell for reasonable price because ebay and flipkart have the 7850 which are expensive
  7. for online no they all are suckers btw in which city do you live i mostly buy from hardware shop and i m from mumbai btw flipkart is the best online one.:)

    I live in Visakhapatnam and yes i agree flipkart is a good online shop but, HIS 7850 and MSI Twin Frozer II 560 ti have the same price and yes i have heard that electronics are very cheap in Mumbai :D :D but are a bit expensive in visakhapatnam
  9. go and check the prices in hardware shop nearby you maybe you will get it in low price.:)
