Zotac gtx 650 ti 2gb or gb 7850 2gb for e7500 2.93GHz

will zotac gtx 650 ti be bottlenecked on non overclocked e7500 2.93 GHz/4gb ram, or does it make sense to buy gigabyte 7850 2gb, which is 30 eur more expensive? and get 20% more fps in games?

currently i run gigabyte 5750 1gb on 1920x1080@60Hz, and usually I get 30-45fps on medium to high with 2-4 MSAA

thanks

  1. The 7850 is like ~35% faster than the 650 ti and in 1080p it will much better for anygame, for price/performance i'd go for the 7850 2GB.
    Your cpu will not bottleneck the card.
  2. well i found few topics on web, where was said that:
    1. e6600 3ghz 2mb cache is bottlenecked by 650 ti
    2. e7300 is bottlenecked by 460 se

    so when I check toms hierarchy chart, 460se is 2 level lower than 650 ti, and I assume it really looks, that gtx 650 ti is maximum i can utilize on my system.

    well its already ordered and incoming, and 7850 would not be much of help to me as I already purchased separatly far cry 3 insane edition and 7850 comes with far cry 3 while 650 ti comes with AC III :)

    I should get the package on tuesday so we will see how much gpu will be used in bf3, since skyrim is cpu intenso to use it as benchmark.

    At high resolutions it is the better the gpu that it will be decisive, and the 7850 would've been better and even for a future new pc.
    The 650 ti just not a good card for 1080p vs 7850 2GB.
    For me the good cards for 1080p gaming is the 7850 or 660 gtx 2GB.
  4. ok i will try to go with stronger card,
    EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3GB SC Signature 2
    should be able to live its own life in CPU less intense games :)

    I posted a question to PSU section about PSU
    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/355630-10-signature-12volt-rail

    any ideas?
    thanks
