The ASUS and Gigabytes models are good the other isn't. the cheaper of those two is going to be the best one to buy.

The Nvidia equivelent to a AMD 7850 is their GTX 660 (non Ti).

But the 7850 is cheaper, in the US at least.

As for which card to get, although I normally don't recommend it, if the powercolor is that much cheaper than the ASUS that's the card to get.

GTX660. It will deliver much smoother (and more consistently smooth performance). Take a look at the third post:

They're a notch up from what you're looking at, but the architectures are very similar - results will apply.

A lot better :-) whether you're looking at frames/second or frame latency, it will be far superior. Double check that memory though - should be 2GB. Also what country are you in? EVGA offer a three year warranty here, extended to five or ten years if you register your details with them. Worth keeping in mind!

Haha it's surprising how little some business know about the products they sell! I'm relieved it's a mistake - a 1GB version of the GTX660 is not something we want to see. Much better to stick at 2GB.

id like to get the asus hd7850, these are their price here

Php 11,200.00 - EVGA GTX660 SC 2gb

Php 12,400.00 - Asus hd7850 2gb


if their performance are the same then il get the evga and i could use the extra money for something else.
would that be a logical move to do? or should i just get the asus directly

Definitely the GTX660. Nobody can deny it's faster in frames/second, and in frame latency it'll be even faster still. It's a far superior card and costs more than the 7850 in most countries. The fact you can buy one for cheaper... go for it :-)
