I'm not a said "Expert" at computers but I know some things, anywho Lets just get straight to the point. I'm upgrading my graphics card soon mainly just to play some high graphical games that my current graphics card couldn't handle, and I need to know which graphics card is better. GeForce GTX 560 Ti Or ATI Radeon HD 6770. Thanks.

Here's just a simple comparison of framerate's:
5770 vs GTX 560 Ti
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/538?vs=547

6770 is an improvement on the 5770, so it will have a minor performance upgrade. Nothing too significant.

You'll do better with a GTX 560 Ti.

Hope that helps :)

What would be best for ARMA 2 Maxed? Or can any of them max them out?

The GTX 560 Ti would be the better choice.

If this helps a 560 Tis performance is roughly that of a 6950.

How so? It's the same card! They just crossed out the 5 and wrote a 6 instead. :lol:

For him to use the GTX 480, he would need more power from his PSU, we need to know what PSU he is using to get a better idea. The GTX 560 Ti uses less energy and uses 2 6 pin PCI-E connectors vs the GTX 480 using 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin connectors that some PSU's don't have.

When did the 480 come into this? :heink:

the 560 ti is the better choice, i got one last weekend for 160 on ebay(pretty decent since it can cost about 220-250 new)

i also got it for arma 2 (dayz mod here i come hope that steam summer sale gets here soon)

the 560 ti is most definitely better than the 6770 in terms of raw power.

also according to toms hard ware it is about 3 tiers higher on the graphics card hierarchy chart

@Mousemonkey: You are correct in regards to the 6770 being totally re-branded from the 5770, but they would not re-badge it without any improvement.

However to be fair to AMD, they have at least made some effort to improve on the 6700 series over the 5700 series through the BIOS. As you may recall, one of the big differences for the 6000 series over the 5000 series is that the 6000 series got HDMI 1.4a support, along with a UVD3 video decoder that was capable of decoding the additional resolutions and bitrates Blu-Ray 3D’s MVC(H.264) profiles require. These changes have been backported to Juniper to some extent.

UVD2.2 is fast enough to process MVC, so now the 6700 series can decode Blu-Ray 3D. Without any hardware on hand we can’t specifically test this, but we suspect AMD may have introduced a new PowerPlay state (or edited an existing one) to further ramp up Juniper’s core clocks when playing MVC content, as this would be the most practical way to increase the max bitrate UVD2.2 can handle, if indeed it couldn’t handle MVC bitrates at the usual core clocks. Update: AMD has confirmed our theory. In fact the UVD3 also have a Blu-Ray 3D PowerPlay state, which means UVD2 and UVD3 may be more similiar than we once thought.

Meanwhile HDMI 1.3 and HDMI 1.4a both have the same bandwidth requirements, so now the 6700 series is HDMI 1.4a capable through some BIOS magic – although we haven’t been able to get confirmation that this support extends beyond support for the frame-packed formats required for HDMI 3D, or in other words it may not support 2K x 4K resolutions and other features normally associated with HDMI 1.4a. Update: AMD confirmed that the 6700 series only supports the HDMI 3D portions of the HDMI 1.4a spec. Apparently this is consistent with Northern Islands, which [sic] doesn't support 2K x 4K resolutions over HDMI either.

I only mentioned the 480 as a comparison point. I know that it consumes quite a bit of power, and the OP did not state the PSU. It's also a fairly long card, so it also may not fit in the case.

But in regards to the whole thread, I would choose a GTX 560 Ti.

There’s really no way to sugarcoat it, and even AMD isn’t really trying. It’s the same Juniper GPU on the same boards with the same clocks, the same power requirements, and the same performance. The only thing different between a 5700 series card and its 6700 series counterpart is the sticker on the card, the BIOS, and quite possibly the price.

In theory flashing a 6770 BIOS to a 5770 would give it all the "improvements" of the 6770 because IT'S THE SAME CARD! There is NO difference in the hardware because THEY ARE THE SAME CARD!
