Hey, I'm going to buy a new gpu soon and i was just wondering which one should i get?
I have a budget of £100 - £150. The cheaper the better because i need a new hard drive.
I will like to play games like, skyrim, bf3, far cry 3. ect on high/max settings which a decent fps. I don't mind if it's not all on max but i would just like a decent graphic at least med+.
which one? i would be happy with recommend ones to!

  • SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 7770 VAPOR-X OC 1GB GDDR5 - http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/amdradeon...

  • XFX AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 - http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/amdradeon...

  • GIGABYTE AMD Radeon HD 7850 OC 1GB GDDR5 - http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/amdradeon...

    Hi. If you can stretch your budget by £13 or more, I'd get the GTX 660. The price difference is worth the upgrade. But if you must choose from these three, I'd get the HD 7850 2GB especially if you play at 1920 x 1080 or higher.

    Thanks, but the SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 7770 VAPOR-X has the fastest core speed and gddr5 speed, the only differents is that it's got 1gb. the the xfx amd radeon hd 7850 2gb has a 2gb but slower speeds.

    Hi
    The 7770 may have higher clocks but it is a lower class card, the 7850 will blow it out of the water, as you can see here : http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=549.
    For the price difference i would defiantly say to go with the 2GB 7850.
    Do you have a vendor preference? As i have found these which may be of interest for you :
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX... - Great cooler and overclocked out of the box.
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-radeon-hd-7850-o... - Again good cooler and overclocked.

    Personally i would agree with johnsonjohnson and go with the GTX 660 but you may have a preference towards AMD cards.

    Hope this helps.

    I would go for 7850 playing on FHD monitor. On lower res, 660 is better, but then i would go for 7870. Anyway, of these: 7850 best price/performance value.
