Hi guys, right now I'm going to budget build PC, specs are these :

Xclio 3060 II Mid-Tower (keeping it from my old system)
i5 3570k with Arctic Cooling 13 (for mild OC)
620w Antec 80+ Modular PSU
Asus P8Z77-V LX mobo
8gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz (2x4gb)
WD 320GB 7200rpm sata 8mb cache (keeping it from my old system)

VGA - I'M STUCK BETWEEN THESE!!
GTX 660 OR HD 7870??
GTX 660TI OR HD 7950??

HERE IN EUROPE THEY ARE ALMOST THE SAME PRICES OR VERY NEAR!

THE MOST IMPORTANT TARGET FOR ME IS TO PLAY THESE GAMES ON ULTRA/MAX SETTINGS ON 1600X1200 (FOR NOW) (next year upgrading to full hd monitor 1920X1080) :

HITMAN : ABSOLUTION, MAFIA II, ALAN WAKE, GTA IV, SNIPER ELITE V2, FAR CRY 3, DIRT 3, NFS: THE RUN, MAX PAYNE 3!

I DONT PLAY COD, BF3, PLANETSIDE, PORTAL 2, METRO 2033....OR ANY TYPE OF ONLINE FIRST PERSON SHOOTER GAMES LIKE THESE!

WHAT IS THE BEST VGA TO CHOOSE FROM THOSE?? PLEASE HELP ME!! THANKS! :hello:

Please don't use all caps. It makes it seem like you are shouting at us, and some of us have a headache after Christmas.... Thanks.

660TI OR HD 7950

GTX 660 Ti is good. 7950 is a little faster but Doesn't Physx.
7870 is faster than 660. But I have GTX 660 instead of 7870.

So, if you ask me I'd prefer GTX 660 Ti.
Its faster and enough for all those games. Even at 1920x1080 Resolution.

Get whichever you trust.
Both are good cards.

If you want Physx, Adaptive V-Sync then Nvidia
If you want more fps then AMD.

You won't max out Far Cry 3 with a single GPU. Currently, 7870 is best bang for your buck GPU out there.

Great decision, very good card, excellent benchmarks. This will kill any of the options you were thinking about before......
