Cause that's what i told you in the other thread, better performance for less power and same price.

the only sole reason at this price point to go with nvidia is if you use any programs that actually utilize the cuda coding language set, or ever plan to use the card as a physx card in the future.(which applies to a very limited set of games). Price to performance/temperature/power consumption wise, the 7850 is the solid card in this price range which rivals the gtx 570 at a lower cost.

just a short reference on 7850 vs 560ti(normal) these are at stock clocks i presume as well. the 7850 beats the 560 ti in almost all categories except specifically portal 2 and battlefield 3(pretty close though). Then this would be where the radeon 7k series overclocking potential kicks in because the 7k series can easily overclock on the base clock (860 mhz standard speed, most people can obtain ~1200 mhz) which is the reason why it rivals the 570

I would wait for the GTX660 but if you get the 7850 go with the Asus

^ tis what i would do at this time period to see how the 660 is priced and how it fares(which will likely replace the 570 at the 300$ point)

look up reviews online, both are solid cards. If i could use an asus one in person, i can give my opinion since i own a sapphire one myself, but I cant be biased and take one side without trying the other first.

but the question can be asked when is the 660 going to be coming out? lol

You opened too many threads asking for a graphics card, now I guess you know what you want.
Just make sure your threads are closed not to be merged.

temperature wise, its at ~34 idle and ~5x celcius on load. the only game which had artifacting issues for me so far is starcraft 2. where it would artifact the water at certain points
