Need Advice on HD 7750 vs. GTX 560

Im after some advice as to what sort of GPU I should consider for my PC.

Im running an AMD Phenom ii x4 955 oc'ed to 4.0ghz, Asus M4N68T-M Motherboard, 8gb Kingston Hyperx 1600mhz on an Antec HCG 520w PSU.

I've got no real preference as to what card would work best. Basically, I'm looking for a card that will fit in with my current build performance-wise. I'm not after highest resolution Crysis or anything, but something that is of a comparable level of performance to my other components, if you follow.

I've been looking at these two cards (note I have no special preference for MSI cards):

MSI Radeon R7750-PMD1GD5/OC 1GB

MSI GeForce N560GTX-M2D1GD5/OC 1GB

The Radeon card is about $100 cheaper... What do you guys think? Is one of these suitable, or could I go for something better again? What would my limit be before the older/budget motherboard starts slowing things down?

In the U.S. the GTX 480 is ~$200. It will complement that CPU well.

You'd want to into a GTX 560 TI (448-core) or a 7850, or a 7870 (if you can find a good deal).

You won't really see a bottleneck with your CPU since it's a 4-core.

Im based in New Zealand, so use pricespy to check out pricing and whatnot. Have almost settled on this- turns out it is the second-highest rated card on there.

Sapphire Radeon HD7850 HDMI Dual-DisplayPort 2GB

Retailing for 375 New Zealand dollars = 297.4875 U.S. dollars...

A bit pricey if you ask me (USD wise..) dunno if that's a good price in NZ or not though.

However, I don't think you'll be disappointed if you get an HD7850 :)  it's one heck of a good card! And certainly much better than the two you listed in your first post :lol:

Well if you're going to pay $360 NZD for a 560 Ti..I would rather get the HD7850.

If you can overclock the 7850, it can perform similar to a GTX580 :)  It'll compliment your system nicely as well, so no worries there :lol:
