I have the MSI 460 786mb.
I have not paid attention to gfx cards in some time and was wondering which of these I should upgrade to.
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD Fermi 732MHZ 1280MB
OR
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 OC 1033MHZ 2GB

Would mostly be for gaming.
Thanks

I would go with the 7870 personally, as it has higher performance than the 570 or 660 and is around $250.

That card is a bit out of my $$ range. Just noticed I forgot to put my budget in the top post which is $220.

Out of those 2, I would go with the 660. It is a little bit faster and not to mention less noise and power. But if you could stretch your budget or wait for a good sell and get the 7870, that would be even better. Actually, I think you can find a decent 7870 for $230.

For $220, I would go for the 7850 then, because if you are playing at high resolutions with AA enabled, its going to be able to out-pace the 660.

I haven't seen a 570 for $220. Hmm.

The 570 would not be a bad deal then. Its got a higher memory bandwidth than the 660, so if you are playing at high resolution with AA enabled and all.

Yet, the 660 would be the better deal at that price:
