Radeon HD 7770 or GTX 560
Hi, as of right now, which card offers better performance? I'm looking to do some medium gaming at the moment, flight sims at the most. I have to pick up a new PSU, so I'd like to stay under a budget of 220 USD. Thanks!
If your budget is 220 USD , I would suggest the GTX 560 Ti 1GB. Subsequently , you can get the overclocked version for a little more

Both card are over your budget by a little , its up to you if you want to pick up the 7770
There are tons of reviews of GTX 560 TI being the best performance for money.
You can see that the 560 TI outperform the 7770 quite marginally but its all up to your choice.
I would choose the 560 over the 7700. I had an AMD 6850 which is about on par with the 7700(a little faster in some cases) and it struggled with some of the newer games so i upgraded to an AMD 7850 which is a very good card for the money.
The 7700 has a lower power consumption than the 560 if that's something which is important for you. It uses half the electric than the 560.
