I am stuck between these two cards. On one hand, the 7850 performs slightly better than the 650, but on the other, the 650 ti comes with AC3, which I can sell for a discount.... Feedback? thanks.

The GTX 650 Ti may be cheaper but the HD 7850 is a LOT faster.

yep the 7850 is better and you won't be needing 2gigs of VRAM either.
When I'm playing just cause 2 at 1080p it hardly uses 700megs of VRAM

So HD7850 FTW!

I have a MSI 7850 with a very good cooler and i had an MSI 6850 before that which served me well. Sapphire do one with a very good and quiet twin fan cooler too

I second that. Mine has 2gb of ram and i got it on sale for the same price as some 1gb models. What country are you buying in? Maybe you can get a good deal on a 2gb as it will last longer

650ti is an inferior card than 7850 alright. but when you consider sheer value the 650ti is currently an exciting proposition.
AC3 free is probably one of the best offer i have seen on a entry to mid range card ever.
i would have bought the 650ti for that great deal alone.
but since you not interested in AC3 the 7850 will be a better long term investment for you and in general for people who dont change their gpu every year
so go for 7850. personally i would recommend sapphire or msi cards.
i dont like the big ugly cooler on gigabyte while it does a great job of being cool.
avoid powercolor.
