Is it really worth +90€ ? Need Help ASAP !

Hi , I am buying a new GPU in a few days , and I was thinking about the Sapphire HD7850 which here in Portugal is 244€ . But then I saw the EVGA GTX560 Ti FPB at 154€ ! I'll be playing mostly BF3 , Black Ops 2 [tired of PS3 , that's why the upgrade] , NFS Most Wanted ( probably with the Frosbite engine ), ARMA II and some older games at 1920x1080 .

BTW , i'm going to get the Corsair TX650 V2 PSU , and I know that i can crossfire 2 7850's , but can i can SLI 2 560ti's ?

Thanks for your time ;)

  1. Yes its worth the +90 euro .

    You can SLI two 560Ti's .

    7850 BF3 Performance at highest settings :- http://media.bestofmicro.com/P/M/328810/original/BF3%201920.png

    7850 compared with 560Ti :- http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/549?vs=547

    7850 Power Requirements :

    1) 500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended

    2) 600W power supply (or greater) with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connectors recommended for AMD CrossFire™ technology.
  2. If 1.4 frames per second is worth it to you, then go for it. I would get that much cheaper 560 Ti, overclock it and be happy.

    The only game that the 7850 is way better is Skyrim , and I am really not interested in playing that game . And in Battlefield it is exactly the same thing , even in anandtech , the 560ti is better so ... what do i get more for 90€ ? Less power draw ? When I get rid of the card , i won't have spent 90€ + on electricity than with the 7850 .
