- I am going to run SLI/Xfire in the future.Is the PSU good or is it overkill for my system?I would prefer to have a PSU with 4 x 6+2 on the 12v rail.
- MSI RADEON HD7950 OC 3GB GDDR5 costs me the same as the MSI GTX660 ti power edition OC.Which way to go?Will the setup work for SLI/Xfire?Which card do you recomend for HD7950(might get a good deal on other brands)?
I play everything from Skyrim to Guild Wars 2,meaning CPU depend and CPU little effect on FPS.I dont mind loading screens.
Yes,I know SSD's are good due to their high speed and being less prone to malfunction than a HDD but here is portugal they are crazy expensive,more than 1 euro per Gb on the lowest possible value SSD so I'd rather wait it out.
Switched to a XFX 750w XXX edition and saved 30 euros.
I rarely see "nVidia-pro" games around probably because game companies decided to support both AMD and Nvidia for profit.
Is it worth the extra 44 euros to go 7950 instead of GTX660ti?I am looking at 316 eur Vs 360 eur , thats ~14% more expensive than a GTX660ti here.
It's a close competition with the recent drastic price reductions from AMD but I'd stick w/ the 660 Ti ....
Here's the results of techpowerups testing in common games (Alan Wake, AvP, Batman Arkham City, BF3, BattleForge, COD4, Civilization 5, Crysis. Crysis 2, Dirt 3, Dragon Age II, Hard Reset, Metro 2033, Stalker CoP, Starcraft 2, Shogun 2, Skyrim, WoW, Diablo II, Max Payne 3, Sniper Elite V2) on the cards mentioned so far:
660 Ti gets 1387.41 fps for $280 at a cost of $0.20 per frame
7870 gets 1236.6 fps for $240 at a cost of $0.19 per frame
7950 gets 1348.2 fps for $300 at a cost of $0.22 per frame
Only 3% win for the 660 Ti on fps but it grows to 10% when cost per frame is considered.
Hardware.Info uses AvP High 4AA, Batman AC Very High 4AA, BF3 Ultra High 4AA, Crysis 2 Ultra High Edge AA, Dirt 3 Ultra 4AA, Hard Reset Ultra 4AA, Metro 2033 Very High, Skyrim High 4AA and Shogun 2 Ultra 4AA in their Game Suite
GTX 660 Ti gets 566.0 fps at cost of $0.49 per frame

Again, only 1.5% win for the 660 Ti on fps here but again it grows to 10% when cost per frame is considered.
