Hd 6790 vs hd 7770 vs hd 6770

Hi! i am new to this forum, and i am in a dilemma over these 3 GPUs and so i would like to ask which of these is going to give me the best value for money,
HD 6790-rs8600(155$)
HD 7770-rs9500(172$) and
HD 6770-rs8200(150$),
now i know that the hd7770 is the fastest among the 3, but is it worth the extra money,since i am on a tight budget(the 6790 comes within the borderline of my budget).
My specs-
CPU- intel pentium G630 2.7ghz
PSU- corsair CX 430
MOBO-ASUS P8H61-M LX Motherboard
RAM- corsair 4gb ddr3
HDD-WD cavair 500gb
the above specs i have already order,only the graphics card is left. My main requirement is gaming(crysis 2 ,witcher 2,future soldier,metro 2033 etc) and movies.
my monitor is of 1366*768 resolution,
so please suggest me the card with which i would be able to max out the games at that resolution around 35 fps.
thank you

  1. of the 3, I would personally eliminate the 6770. 5$ is pretty modest for the slight difference between a 6790 and the 6770. as for 6790 vs 7770, would be up to you. 17$ gap is a bit, but you should see a performance game. basicallt question is is it worth it?(the 6790 is probably more than enough for that resolution anyways)


    my vote would be 6790
  2. thank you, also will my processor pentium G630 will be enough for gaming or will it bottleneck the HD 6790
  3. processor is more than enough.
  4. there's a considerable performance between 6850 and 6790..

    and 7770 even faster than 6850 rightnow..


    i vote for 7770..
    even it's more expensive, but worthed for $17 differences.. :)
  5. now, i am getting a MSI HD 7770 for rs8700, about the same price as the hd 6790, so i am going to buy it and is it really faster than the HD 6850 now???

    At stock clocks the Radeon HD 6850 is the faster card but a Radeon HD 7770 can overclock quite nicely. I'd say it is more or less on par with a Rdeon HD 6850: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Catalyst_12.11_Performance/23.html
  7. Thanks a lot, one last question- How does a GTX 650 fare against the HD 6790 & HD 7770?
  8. will a msi hd 7770 power edition be faster than a hd 6850??
  9. Yes.
  10. Nope a 6850 is actually faster than a 7770 but consumes more power
