System Specs:
Pentium Dual Core E5700 @3.00GHz
4 GB DDR3 RAM
PSU: Corsair CX430 V2

Resolution: 1024 * 768

I will be playing all games Maxed Out or with reduced AA just at 1024*768. I just cant select the best card among the 3. I dont care for power, cause all of the 3 card will run fine on my PSU. I just want a card which will be more future proof and which can get me the best FPS.

Help guys! :(

GTX 550Ti is an amazing budget card. You won't need anything more at that resolution. It's capable of running everything on high on my old pc which is @ 1680x1050. Have fun!

I'd get HD 7750. They all have very similar performance, and HD 7750 can overclock best of them all plus it's cooler than both other cards. Unless you want PhysX, of course.

I'd suggest buying a new monitor first. 1024x768? Really?

I can't imagine any kind of gaming experience on that.

To be honest, I agree with geekapproved. Wasn't sure you were going to afford it though.

I will get a 1600x900 after a couple of months...but I will get a new GPU first.

Yes, it's a good card. What's your budget? Maybe you can even afford HD 7770?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's much faster than either of them.

I dont thing a HD 7770 is worth for money, if i could extend my budget i will get a HD 6850 rather.

BTW, wont a HD 7750 OC play any game maxed out at 1024*768?

5770~6770.

Read through the entire thing.

Or, if your budget allows, the 7770 as Sunius says.


I think BF 3 is a nVidia oriented game it runs better in nVidia cards.

But if you compare GTX 550 Ti with HD 7750 in Crysis 2 you see a different winner, have a look:

It's worth going for HD 7770, it's better than HD 6850. And HD 7750 will not max all games. Just most of them.

HD 7750 performs on par with both 6770/550 Ti. And it's cheaper.

I was wrong :sweat:  , the HD 7770 is better than HD 6850. But unforunately my budget is only around $120.

I asked you to go through the entire thing, not just BF3. The crysis 2 benchmark on the next page paints a very different picture of things than the techpowerup review, so i'm not sure what's up.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/539?vs=614

Probably the GHz edition does better, i guess. I seriously don't think it'll still beat a 6850, maybe equal it then. That techpowerup review seems to be incorrect/exaggerated. Or maybe if you consider Crysis 2's DX11 mode only.

I've noticed this, it happens many times.

Hmmm...though the frame rates for the other cards are consistent with Tom's DX11 bench (because techpowerup was doing it in DX11 mode)...but it's just those two cards that seem abnormally high. Maybe they used different drivers, clocks, etc.

550 ti for your original question. Though all three have very similar performance.

However, you mentioned a new monitor in a couple months. Therefore, I would strongly suggest an HD 6850 (msi pe/oc specifically). While there are many different benchmarks and games that each GPU will differ in, the 6850 is rock solid at your future resolution (1600 x 900).

Most of the guys have answered your question pretty well. So even in my opinion if you can increase your budget than the HD 7770 is the best at its price point.
If you cannot extend the budget then GTX 550 Ti. The HD 7750 is pretty much at power but I have a soft corner for Nvidia.

What I want to point out is that it wont matter if you get HD 7750 or GTX 550 Ti. At that resolution these cards will max out almost all games easily. The problem will be your processor. As at lower resolution the CPU gets stressed rather than the GPU.
And as far as I know that processor is not what I would call a strong performer for games of 2011/2012. Plus you be bottlenecking these cards by your CPU as well as your monitor resolution.
JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

OK......so am left with either the GTX 550 ti or the HD 7750. The GTX 550 ti has physX and better drivers and HD 7750 has more FPS. But which one will be more future proof? And isnt PhysX is too much for GTX 550 ti?

At least by newegg prices, the opposite is true. The 6850 isn't worth the money. It's $30 more than the 7770. If you're gaming in dx11, the 7770 tends to be faster as well.

Hey, whatever floats your boat. IMO, the only reason to get a 7750 instead of a 7770 is if you don't have a 6 pin, or your PSU's 12v rail is otherwise weak.

Performance-wise, the 7770 gives you a very significant performance jump for only $10 more than the 7750.

good luck!

For most popular current games; the difference in sum almost negligible
For future, AMD may optimize drivers for the new 7750 better than the older 6770

Suggestion; wait for GTX 650 TI, I think it will give a slightly higher FPS with a similar price!

No way, i3 and 7770 (better CPU and GPU) cannot match with yours athlon x2 and 6790
Despite your review; 7770 > 6790
