I've seen a video of 660 Ti vs HD 7850, and the 660 Ti is roughly 10 FPS better consistently. But the question here today is should I get it? My friend was showing me his xCilo case which looked awesome, but costs around $250 (coming from him). I kinda want to get his case, and he wants me to get it too. But I saw another thermaltake case that will suit my needs at only $150 and still looks stunning.
The question is should I get 660 Ti + Thermaltake Case = $550 or HD 7850 + xCilo case = $500 (These are the estimated prices.)
My heart lies with the 660 Ti and thermaltake case, but he insists on getting his case.
Depends on what you want to play. You buy a case you like you probably won't ever have to change it. GPUs on the other hand get upgraded constantly. It's much more of a hassle to change cases than to change GPUs. So if your budget doesn't change and after reading the benchmarks you're satisfied with the FPS that the 7850 is giving you, then go that route. If you need more performance, then all you can do is sacrifice the case. Basically the information is out there and match the games you play and the resolution you play at with the card you require.
