So I'm looking for a graphics card for under $150. My local computer shop recommended the Radeon HD 7770 or the GTX 650. Would the 7770 be better than the 650? I don't really play high end games, just games like World of Tanks, or CS:GO, or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. My CPU is an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83 Ghz with 4 GB or RAM. So would the 7770 or 650 be good or are their any better options?
Hi. The HD 7770 would be better than the GTX 650. The GTX 650 Ti is better than the HD 7770 and under $150. But sometimes the HD 7850 1GB can be had for $150 or less after rebate and that would be the best. Just make sure you have a quality power supply unit for whichever card you decide to go with.
Yeah, the I've already worked out the psu. I've looked at the 7850 and most go for $170, but I'll see what the shop says. But as for the 650 Ti, this would be the better option over the 7770? Is the $30 difference worth it?
at that res, a 7770 could drive BF3 on ultra around 50fps (I used to have a 7770). Yes, the 650 Ti will be slightly better than the 7770 in some games, however, it is not worth the 30$ since your res is relatively low. 7770 is the best value for what you need.
