  1. I would recommend either the 6870 or the GTX560. The 6870 usually comes with a free game and more often than not is cheaper. The GTX560 has the same performance:


  2. Is the PSU which I have capable of handling those GPU's?
  3. Yes it is.
  4. Ty. Im in a confusion whether to go for GeForce or Radeon ? My MB does not support SLI and it supports only Crossfirex.
  5. It would not be wise to go Crossfire or SLI with that card. They are too weak and will just introduce microstuttering. SLI or CrossFire are meant for high end cards.

    As for AMD vs Nvidia. Both have their advantages.


    * Support for 4 displays (vs 2 for Nvidia)
    * Lower power consumption
    * Runs cooler
    * Comes with a free game

    * Supposedly better drivers
    * Supports PhysX ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWFkDrKvBRU )
    * Supports FXAA/TXAA
    * Supports Adaptive VSync
    * Better 3D technology
    * Supports old motherboards with PCIe 1.0

    If I missed something, others please correct me :).
  6. I think you covered it all
  7. Thank you, I will check GTX 560 and 6870HD
  8. I would suggest this HD 7770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125435 or this GTX 560 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127593

    If u wish to play at 1080p GTX 560 (or this HD 6870 that I use and I am perfectly happy http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948) is better choice. If u play in lower resolutions 7770 OC will probably be enough.

    However what I would do is buy this HD 7850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102999 or if u want to go cheaper the 1GB version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150617

    The price difference with the GTX 560 is small and they are new and much faster cards. Hope I helped
  9. I recommend getting the 7850 if you are around the 200$ budget. Seriously, it overclocks the best, stays low voltage, and you can choose which aftermarket cooler is the best. You can't go wrong with that card. The first card that i was gonna go with was the 7850, but then my budget increased so now I am thinking about getting the 7950, 670, or the 7970. You don't have to worry about that. Just know that I started off going with the 7850.
  10. The PSU which I am using, will the GTX 560ti or the 7850HD card works with it ?
  11. Yes! Your power supply will work with any single GPU card.
  12. Thank you guys. Got the GTX 560Ti Asus OC edition.
  13. I'm glad you were able to choose :).
