SAPPHIRE HD 7850 OC 2GB GDDR5 or MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II 2GD5/OC

SAPPHIRE HD 7850 OC 2GB GDDR5 --- Vs --- MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II 2GD5/OC

I'm building a new pc for gaming.. and I stopped at this, Nvidia or Ati?? represented on those two cards.. some people say Nvedia has better details and physx and more tessellation.. don't know if this was true?!


anyway, the cards are here:
http://egprices.com/product.php?id=13604
http://egprices.com/product.php?id=11985

and that's and egyptian store because I'm from Egypt, Note: If i'm going to buy "MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II 2GD5/OC" I will have to pay extra $45 ($17 increase in card price, $23 increasing Watt in Power Supply) - after currency conversions -
so basically.. the HD 7850 is a lot cheaper.

Thanks in advance.

  1. according to this chart:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html

    the 7850 is in higher level than the 560ti...so... better performance, cheaper price.

    although, physx is in nvidia only...still not worth the higher price, imho....
  2. thank you.. what about this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NrM_UrtdmQ
    i've just found people complaining in the video about flickering!
  3. that happens with many card not with hd 7850 only.:)

    well get the sapphire hd 7850 oc one that is a very good gpu its already oced and you can overclock it more to get more performance ggodluck.:)
  4. thanks very much.. Please just one last question.. is it true the nvedia cards have better tessellation than ati?? in that case does the 560 ti has better tessellation than hd 7850?
  5. yeah but that doesnt matter and ati cards also have good tessellation.:)
  6. thank you.
  7. One thing I've noticed over the years is that ATI cards seem to be a lot smoother with higher settings than Nvidia cards. The ati cards seem to be more efficient at higher settings even if frame rate is lower it seems to be more stable. I've owned dozens of each ati and nvidia. Both my gtx 570 and radeon 7950 framerate fluctuate a lot of slower setting in bf3 but on ultra and with catalyst control center settings maxed things looked a lot better and were smooth. Fps only varied by about 5 during online play. The 570 had a larger window of framerate at all settings.
  8. Oh thanks.. but you mean by " The 570 had a larger window of framerate at all settings." that even 570 had more fps, ati was smoother?
  9. i am using sapphire radeon hd 7850 hd oc 2gb ddr5 hdmi. i built a newcustom rig i had the same problem of choosing nvidia or amd. i first chose
    nvidia but atlast comparing the benchmark i chose amd. i works flawlessly it is a graphics card which does nt know what is lagging and flickering. it has a good physx not better than nvidia.if u are for gaming fps is much more important than physx so just blindly go for it
