The 560 Ti is the fastest of those three, but I find it difficult to believe that there is one available for about $150 and it's a huge power hog compared to the other two. The 650 Ti is about $150 and is usually a little faster than the 7770, but the 7770 is the better value in price/performance (especially with high settings/MSAA at lower resolutions).

Crap, I meant the normal 560. NOT the Ti.

Then ignore it. The 650 Ti and some factory overclocked 7770s can fight with the 560 in performance while using much less power. I'd get a factory overclocked 7770 such as the Sapphire OC (1.15GHz GPU, 1.25GHz memory, about 20% faster than reference 7770), but that's me. The 650 Ti competes well enough to be considered anyway.

You really can't save up some cash and just buy a better video card? I mean take a look at this videocard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
that isn't that much more for a much better gaming setup then those other cards that will struggle to do even basic gaming.


Define basic gaming.

Well some people would say basic gaming is stuff like Minecraft or WOW or facebook games. I however would define basic gaming as playing games at least 35ish fps on Ultra to high settings in most videogames that are current. Unless you would rather suggest something to the OP that may not offer them much at all. I happen to think that most people that Pc game want at least high settings and to be able to play them at high settings with out massive drops in FPS.

The cards that I mentioned can do that just fine.

No not really dude you have to turn settings down a ton of games for Playable FPS. If $150 is all you have I would suggest save your money and wait till you can afford a decent card. Don't rush things when there really isn't a need. Wait and get something you really want and will be able to enjoy. Perhaps you might get lucky and be able to buy a 7870 for $150 on black Friday if not just wait it out.

High or thereabouts wouldn't be a problem for even most intensive games, so yes, really. I'm not saying that the 7870 wouldn't be better, I know that it would, but these cards wouldn't be struggling.

@Boardjames First of all, a 7770 is a great card that will play most modern games at medium/high/some on ultra with less AA. Secondly, I am not being cheap. I have set aside $150 dollars for this and thats how much I plan to spend. I just wanted opinions on the 7770 vs 560 vs 650ti. I'm not playing crisis on max settings. Mostly minecraft/ starcraft 2/ diablo 3.

@blazorthon Thanks for actually knowing what you are talking about and giving worthwhile input. :)

This thread proves my point on how people will push other cards down peoples throat..Op asked about 3 cards at 150$ price point n more no less..2nd yall are bias..To op this is why i would say go on your gut feeling look up some reviews and go for it because dealing with forums your going to get subjective answers

I don't wanna argue. I should have asked what games do you play. I think your wrong and being very very cheap but hey whatever you think is best for you is best for you. :D  Enjoy your videocard and keep on gaming bro.

What I would do is take a look at benchmarks and go with the card that is fastest in the games you like to play. That way you get you get the best bang for your buck.

Get the GTX 650 ti, it is about the same performance as the 560, but uses much less power. Both of these are better than the HD 7770.

Alright, what about gtx650Ti vs. regular gtx650 2gb? or 7770?

Neither the 650, the 650 ti, nor the 7770 have enough power to utilize 2GB of VRAM. It is completely useless. The GTX 650 ti 1GB is the way to go.

That being said I love my 7770, it works great with the rest of my cheap and old hard ware and I got my GPU for $105 after the rebate. But, looking at the 650Ti I'd say that's the way to go if you don't mind spending the extra money over the 7770.

Or the 560 if you don't mind the extra heat, and noise, and have a good enough PSU for it. The 560 still doesn't take that much power though.

The 650ti cards do not SLI and the 7770 does crossfire for future upgrades. Also the 650Ti cards are weirdly small in size.
