I have already ordered a Palit GTX 650 Ti. But the shop that I was gonna buy it from, ran out of stocks, and I can't wait till next week to get a new video card :D  So I want to get another one (from a different brand, since their stocks of Palit 650 Ti has ran out)

Now im left with these choices:

Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor X 1gb/128bit (OC Ed)

Power Color HD 7770 1gb/128bit ddr5 PCS+ Vortex 2 (OC Ed)

Power Color HD 6870 1gb/256bit ddr5

http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=20718950 -> EVGA 650 Ti SSC. It is a bit more costly than the others but I just want to know if it's worth the extra few bucks. If it is then I would get this item ASAP.

Thanks :)

+1 on the 6870.

the question of new or not isn't hugely relevant when you're left with a few choices, especially when the newer card performs slower than the older card, unless you're running a specific tasks that fully utilizes the features exclusively available in the newer cards. if you're gaming, the answer to that is a big no in most cases.

I remember you. Hehe.
I thought you chose the HD 7850? You chose the best answer from the guy who suggested the 7850 from a previous thread of yours. Anyway too bad the Palit 650 Ti ran out of stock.

I price difference between the Palit 650 Ti and the EVGA version is, I think, too high.
Are you really in need of a new card? In the previous post I suggested the Palit 650 Ti because it is only a little bit pricier than the Powercolor 6870.

I suggest wait a little bit longer the Powercolor HD 7850 is only 8,000 pesos: http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=16710697 (only about 700 pesos more than the EVGA 650 Ti you are considering). Moreover, rumor is the HD 8850 and the 8870 cards will be out January of next year which will be about 3 months from. By that time the 7850, hopefully, has gotten a significant price drop.

This might change your mind. Watch this video fast forward to the 3:00 minute mark: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaXVrCFvL94

The Linustechtips guy explained why a 2 GB card is the sweet spot for gaming now. He compared a 560 Ti (1GB) and a 600 (2GB). The 660 had double in performance to the 560 Ti in games like BF3, Crysis 2, Skyrim, etc... because of its 2GB memory interface. Note, an HD 7850 also has a 2GB vram.

I know it's tempting to spend the cash but a 7850 2GB will last you a longer time before feel the need for the next graphics card upgrade than a 6870 or a 650 Ti. That's just my suggestion.

PS: Powercolor HD 7850 is only 8,000 pesos now: http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=16710697 only a few more bucks. :)

You make a good point. However, i don't feel i need a 2gb Video Card specially cause i only use a 1366x728 resolution. Looks like im just gonna have to wait till my local computer store re-stocks their 650 Ti. 8,000php is a bit too costly for my budget, not to mention the fact that Im gonna have to pay extra charges for payment through bank deposit and for the freight/shipping cost :( 

The GTX 650 Ti is still a good buy right?

Thanks again sir boy! you really helped me a lot.

Yes. It's the best card available for your budget. Too bad PCHub doesn't carry Inno3D and Gainward versions of the 650 Ti right now. They might be cheaper than the Palit 650 Ti.

For your resolution, you would murder current AAA games with the 650 Ti. It's like having a 680 at 1080p, +60 fps everytime. Hehe
