    best bang for bucks card is a 7950 atm for that price, overclocked can rival a gtx 680.

    and is a better deal than nvidia, i own a gtx 660ti its nice but for the price i should of bought a 7950 tbh.
  2. I have to agree with iceclock on the 7950.
  3. Too late for the whole build since i already ordered hahah but i'll get this card! :P
  4. what did u order finally?
  5. All i linked on top exept the video card and powersupply , i'll take xfx 650w and for the videocard which brand should i take for a 7950?
  6. the cheapest u can find. probably msi or gigabyte.
  7. They're all good, so long as you don't get a reference design card. Sapphire would be my pick.
  8. I had a preferance for sapphire and gigabyte too , alright thanks a lot!
  9. no problem mang, so what build did u pick finally urs or mine?
  10. I took mine because i ordered pieces last week hahaha but the powersupply was back ordered so i canceled it and i'll take the xfx 650 you posted :P an for the card sapphire 7950
  11. Good luck with your build! :)
  12. excellent anarky u can now choose ur own answer as best answer :D
