BUT THE BIG QUESTION IS... **********EVGA GTX 660Ti __VS__ Radeon HD 7950

i plan on playing Diablo 3 and starcraft 2 on ultra... and now im thinking of induldging in Crysis 3, B3, and Metro .... from what i know, the GPU depends on the game and what now.. yeah AMD has more memory/bandwidth.. as NVDIA comming through with PhysX (witch looks sickkkk ) and about 26 games + offer it....

  1. build it yourself. its way more compatable

    a 7950 performs better than a 660ti but then you have to sacrifice a little bit of stability. physx is irrelevant unless you play borderlands 2
  2. how so does it preform better ??? and not only boarderlands 2 --

    ALSO CHECK THIS OUT .INPUT PLEASE

  3. wait in the other post you said you are not going to overclock. so why get a k CPU and a z77 motherboard?

    you better overclock your video card. theres no point not to get free performance

    yes i know that other games support physx but it makes almost no difference in gameplay. only in borderlands is where there are massive differences
  4. i said maybe in the future... and if i go with the GTX 660Ti im going to get it factory Superclocked ... aswell, i understand AMD cards usually have more push to shove when it comes to overclocking. especially the 7950...

    now when it comes to overclocking, do you suggest, have the factory do it foe 20 bucks for "10%" or do it yourself. or both lol
