Hello everyone. I'm building a budget PC and i've decided on the HD 7770 for my video card but i came across a GTX 560 SE for the same price i am just curious if it's better i was not able to find much info on it or able to compare graphs.

GTX 560 SE - http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item...

Sapphire HD7770 OC - http://www.vuugo.com/en/PCI-Express-30/Sapphire-Radeon-...

I was looking into the HD 6870 and GTX 560 ti but they are both too expensive for me so i'm curious about the 560 SE. Any info would help or advice even on which video card has the best performance to price ratio for a bugest gaming PC. Thanks.

Best solution

the 560 se is just a torn down 560 so the 7770 is your best choice and the 7770 is factory OC so its even better

I heard the SE is code for Suck Edition :p . It is a dumbed down version of a regular 560. Go with the HD 7770 in my opinion... they still have a bit of untapped potential in terms of AMD's drivers and the 7000 series can handle some serious overclocks.

But the regular 560 completely craps on the 7770 so surely a slightly dumbed down version of the 560 would be better? No?

No, the 560 SE is lower than the 550 Ti,

A 560 SE is barely better than a 550TI... which compared to a 7770 is crap. Toss in the factory OC and the further overclocks you can easily push on the 7000series and it's a better deal.
