Hey guys!

I know you've probably seen this question a million times, but I have catered this to my specific rig.

SO, at the moment I have 1 evga 560ti 2gb model. I want to upgrade, and my options have come between the 7950 or the 660 ti.

More specificly the MSI 660ti Power Edition and the Sapphire 7950.


I am running a i5 2500k @ 4.0
Seagate hybrid 750gb HDD
gigabyte mobo - not exactly sure which model (I think its the z68)
and ripjaw x ram (8gb)

All going to one single 1920 x 1200 monitor.

Thanks for your help, It means alot! I'm open to any suggestions!

I mean, don't get me wrong its a great card but I'm looking to record gameplay, and on these more demanding games, I feel an upgrade is necessary to enable the games to run smoothly.

What do you think?

if the purpose is only to record games what matters are strong cpu. but if you want to record with the game run on maximum setting then the need of better gpu is reasonable.

performance wise both should perform very close with some games favoring one of the the cards. if you really insisting on upgrading go with which ever is cheaper to you
