Hello,
Upgrading from XFX 6850 BE with an Antec Earthwatts 650W 955BE OC to 3.7GHz, and just wondering which is a better deal... I plan on doing a triple monitor display(1080p), mainly playing Guild Wars 2

EVGA 660 Ti (219.99 After MIR) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4...

Gigabyte 7870 OC (209.88) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4...


Of course the links would break on me...

Gigabyte (GV-R787OC-2GD) AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB

The best is GTX 660 Ti.
It way better than 7870. And 7870 isn't worth the price you listed in your sites.

Are you going to game at 5760x1080 ? 3 monitor support that resolution.

Those cards will struggle at that resolution.
You will need better cards for that.

No way!OP if you buy one of these cards please post a update.I sure as hell do not believe you can run three 5760*1080 and game on high settings with either card.I bet your avg. 20-30fps lol.
