GTX 660 vs HD 7870 (and SLI vs CrossFire too) Tags: Graphics Cards Crossfire Gigabyte SLI MSI Gtx HD Graphics Product Last response: October 19, 2012 3:55 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Miks1890 September 13, 2012 2:17:07 PM So I'm asking what to get: HD 7870 - MSI Twin Frozr at 325$ GTX 660 - Gigabyte WindForce at 300$ (They havent got it on their homepage lol) And im doing a SLI or CrossFire later with these motherboards: CrossFire - MSI Z77A-G43 at 130$ SLI - MSI Z77A-GD55 at 170$ or GigaByte GA-Z77X-D3H at 170$ So what should i take? And Newegg doesnt work for me! More about : gtx 660 7870 sli crossfire egilbe a b U Graphics card September 13, 2012 2:26:22 PM HD 7870. It doesn't have the memory bandwidth issues the GTX 660 has. williamjuly2003 September 13, 2012 2:28:18 PM Okay you probably are going to get a little bit better performance out of 7870s but Radeon drivers aren't to great for crossfire some times the drivers work great for people sometimes they dont. So while you'll take a slight performance hit I'd go with nvida 660s. Although honestly I'd recommend just getting a faster single card and not deal any issues you might with Crossfire/SLI.

So get a 7870 for now and by the time you want to crossfire the drivers should be good! Also you can get 7870 for 240 dollars more or less depending on your card maker preference. sarinaide September 13, 2012 3:36:40 PM I am pretty sure the 7870 is not $330USD more like $230, in that case the P/P is better than a 660ti SLI which is 20% more expensive than a GTX 680, 15% more power and only 10% performance gain. bigcyco1 a c 185 U Graphics card September 13, 2012 4:14:07 PM If 7870 is $325.00 your being ripped off don't buy lol Miks1890 September 13, 2012 8:54:30 PM Well in my country it costs 325$... billybob42 October 19, 2012 3:55:03 PM Miks1890 said:Well in my country it costs 325$...
