Hello everyone,

I have recently upgraded my unit from Intel i5-2500/Asrock P67/G Skill 8gb 1333 to Intel i7-3770/Gigabyte Z77n-wifi/8gb Corsair 1600, along my 1 1/2 year old EVGA GTX 460 FTW video card. I am planning to replace it with XFX HD7770. I want to ask if XFX HD7770 performs better vs EVGA GTX 460 FTW?

What are u using this pc for? If for gaming u went too high on the cpu and too low on the gpu.

they are relatively the same tier, the 460 will perform better, but less efficient per watt.

hi J_e_d_70, using my pc for gaming, but only in decent settings. i got my cpu from an old friend for a very cheap price. i am pretty satisfied with the performance of my old graphics card in gaming, however, its kinda old now and i read few reviews that HD7770 is cooler and consume less power vs gtx 460s. if hd7770 will perform closer (or hopefully a bit better) vs gtx 460 ftw, then i am pretty much happy with it. thanks

HD 7770 is a lot more power efficient than gtx 460.But gtx460 has better perfomance.Unless u r concerned about the card's power efficiency it's vlcer to stick with u'r old GPU

if you can go up to a 7850 it will boost you performance by a lot over the 460 and the 7770
