  1. Your resolution and budget would help. AMD tends to have the better value, especially with the newest driver
  2. my resolution 1920 x 1080 and 180-200 pounds
  3. hd 7870 or gtx 660 whichever you got cheaper will be the best:)amd are always makes price/performance gpus and cpus. nvidia makes gpus with good drivers but now amd is also not making any bad drivers:)
  4. thank you very much....very helpfull :) :) :) :)
  5. your welcome:)no need to say thanks its my pleasure that i can help u:)any questions?
  6. do you thin 3570k or a cheaper amd?????)if amd can you suggest because i dont know a thing about amd......i will be very gratefull if you could answer me
  7. look if u want only gaming then the i5 3570k will be the best i could say. if u want a multitasker,a good cpu for multithreaded apps then fx 8350 of amd will be the best btw u have i5 with z68 mobo already i think?u dont need to upgrade u have the best cpu out there be happy with it dont think too much about that:)goodluck for your gpu buy:)
  8. yeah i think i'll go with the 3570k...i have asus p8z77.....thank you very much for your help
  9. goodluck be happy:)have a nice day:)
  10. If you are gaming at 1920 x 1080 then both cards will do a good job. The main issue with the 660 is the 192 bit bus.
    This reviews explains the issue. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-memory-bandwidth-anti-aliasing,3283-11.html

    Basically If you like to use a lot of AA features FXAA or MSAA etc, then you would be much better off from a flat out FPS performance point of view getting the 7870.

    Please note that the FPS on the tests are not at any stage unplayable, its really only at 2560x1440 with 8 x MSAA that we start to see unplayable frame rates.

    Personally I don't use that much AA and so it wouldn't bother me at all playing at 1920 x 1080 as I do.

    Here is some SLI and Crossfire info http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-geforce-gtx-650-benchmark,3297-14.html

    Hope that all helps rather than confuses.

    Mactronix :)
