1080p: 7850 vs 7870 vs gtx660 vs 7950 Tags: Graphics Cards Cases Graphics Last response: October 29, 2012 12:26 PM in Graphics & Displays Share getbacktosrinu October 29, 2012 9:53:25 AM I have been experimenting with the build I would like to buy... Because of budget constraints I can go for 3 different builds, all of them similarly priced: b75 mobo + 7950 + i3 3220 + 8 gb 1600 RAM + cheap case (no SSD) z77 mobo + 7870/660 + i5 3450 + 8 gb 1600 RAM + gud case (no SSD) b75 mobo + 7850 + i5 3450 + 16 gb 1600 RAM + cheap case + SSD My gaming will be at 1080p. I will be playing AC3, Mass Effect 3, Crysis 2, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Max Payne 3, Arkham City, BF3... Also I want the system to be atleast playable for Crysis 3 and Watch_Dogs. I also will be using a single VM. So I have tried doing my own research but I am basically stuck at this point. And if I am advised to choose the 2nd option: then which should I choose between the 7870 and the gtx 660?
