Sapphire Radeon HD7850 2GB DDR5 OC or Axle Geforce GTX 660 2GB DDR5?

I got some good suggestions in my last post about GPU's and finally came into two suggestions... the HD 7850 or the GTX 660 (Both 2GB versions)

What exactly do you guys recommend?

For the 7850 only the Sapphire version is available

For the GTX 660 only the Axle version is available

According to this site, the GTX 660 is better in most of the reviews.

What should I go for? I have never used AMD GPU's...Is it better to get the Axle GTX 660?

  1. in terms of performance you can say those two are close. if you don't have brand preference just go for which ever is cheaper to you
  2. 7850.
  3. Best answer
    undoubtely the GTX 660 is the better card i've tested the GTX 660 and it runs even better than the 7870 when playing new games as (BF3 , Metro, Batman ) but frankly i never heared of this brand for the GTX 660 anyway i'd recommend u the MSI, Gigabyte or Asus cards they are well cooled and OCed too :) and if u wanna buy the hd 7850 its better to save and buy the 1 gb version its cheaper and gives the same performance as the 2 gb and u could check Reviews for it
  4. I'd personally not hesitate to pick up a GTX660.
  5. AMD GPU's do come with games now.. really up to you, some cards, like the 7770 come with games that sometimes are worth more than the graphics card itself.
