hd7850 is a much better choice, 650ti just wont have enough power to fully utilize these graphics settings

I do not think you will notice the difference but judge for yourself http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/anti-aliasing-perfo...

erm well the 'power' i mean is the performance of the graphic card...

anyway gtx650ti is more on lower-mid end card while hd7850 is a mid end card

i know the "power" was performance, but the fxaa performance hit was half compared to msaa and still better,
and a few games support txaa too, i'm pretty sure that GTA5 will too

Honestly I'm not a big fan of anti-aliasing, I tested it often in the past and I have a hard time noticing the improvement in quality not to mention that it lowers your FPS. I try to stick with 4X MSAA and not bother too much with it. But in most games I would remove AA or put it back and would have a hard time noticing the difference.

Anyways, you should get the 7850 there's no contest. I don't think you can say that nvidia drivers are better anymore. Not a lot of games have PhysX, for instance my last 2 video cards were nvidia and I never ever used PhysX. In other words, I don't see any advantage nvidia vs. AMD, or maybe there are some but with things that I'm not using anyways so I don't bother I just play games. I don't have any preference, I'm looking to replace my video card and I might change for AMD, I've not decided yet, but in my book AMD and nvidia are pretty close to each other for gaming performance.

i'm not trying to be a nvidia fanboy but they say fxaa took 5% hit while 2xMSAA took 30% hit on the performance.
and i;m guessing fxaa can be forced in any game thorough nvidia control panel,
it may not be as good as this game but it will be better than msaa right?

Hd 7850 is way better than 650 Ti .

Check the card rank.

Also it will perfrom better in everything and there are no driver problems !

Physx its not supported by to many games so u dont need it.

Every game is gpu dependant like BF3 is better with nvidia. So bettwen those to Hd 7850 is the way to go !

Yes. However, I recommend that you get a gtx 660 (Non-Ti) instead if you prefer nVidia.

As regard of drivers, AMD's driver is not as good as that of nVidia but OK under windows. Though, for Linux, you will definitely want an nVidia card as AMD's driver under the OS is terrible. However, I have to agree with others that 7850 would be the better choice compared to 650Ti if you mainly (80% +) use windows OS.

Yeah exactly you seem to have already made up your mind before posting. If all you want is nvidia at least get the GTX 660.

However your question was between a 7850 and a 650ti and there's no contest between the two, the 7850 is clearly superior for every games (even those favoring nvidia), FXAA won't change that.

i'm sorry for that but, i've never had a graphics card before, and
i've heard really good things about nvidia,
and there is also a budget thing, the 650 is 11000 in my country!!
and the 7850 is 15000!! and i'm still a student so my dad is paying for it,
so is the 7850 is still worth it? coz if all of u are on 7850's side, i guess it is
a superior card, but given all the circumstances, and th fact that i will be playing in
1600x900 is the 7850 still better or is it a overkill for my resolution??

In that case you will be fine with a GTX 650 ti. It will pretty much max out all your games at 1600x900, especially considering the price difference.

The 650Ti will handle that resolution fine. It is your money so you decide what you are spending it on.

If u play new game's (that will come out after some time 1 year maybe ?) , at some u will have to lower some AA ,AF but for now it will be ok.

And for 4000 Rs u don't need that much for that res.

Gtx 650 Ti will serve u well . :)
