GTX650Ti vs GTX560

No actually I'm open to both Nvidia and Radeon (though I have only had a Radeon) but the reason I have chose the Nvidia is because I heard it has better performance or atleast it use to. But I'm open to suggestions of other cards I really didn't want to spend to much on a card though.

I would say that cards at different price points will have varied performance differences. I personally would try and get a 7850 if you are really tied down on a budget otherwise the 2 gigabyte 7850 or the 660 will do.

That is a pretty good deal with that card for sure. 40-60 dollar game which is a lot of fun and a decent card. I'm not sure what you would expect from a 650Ti though medium and high settings would you say dj?

Depends on the resolution, at 1080p medium settings at the best, some at lowish, like far cry 3.

For games that aren't skyrim, bf3, and far cry 3 would you say medium/high?
January 30, 2013 2:21:03 AM

I'll be playing at 1920x1080 so I don't know what that will do but I would be playing games like Dota 2, LoL, Chivarly, Borderlands 1 hah hmm and L4D2 Metro 2033 (Which I know is a very gpu hungry game) Orcs must die 2, planet side 2, TF2, The war z, Other games like that (I'm saying all the games I own in which I cannot play because my GPU right now is a Radeon 3000... yes I said that right hah) so I realize a lot of those games are very good in detail while some are not but I would love to be able to play the biggest part of them on max or at the lowest medium with at least 30+ fps
January 30, 2013 2:22:46 AM

Well I didn't want to spend anything over 150 but I could push it I guess to 170 tops maybe

For Dota 2, LoL, Chivarly, Borderlands 1, L4D2, Orcs must die 2, TF2, The war z , it can maxout those games at 1080p without problems, the 650 ti, now for metro 2033 and ps2, i can't be sure, but ps2 is more cpu dependent, for metro 2033 will run but not at high settings, but it will run fine.
But if you can spend about 170$, there's the 7850, which will be better :

I would go at it like this 650>650ti>GTX660/7850 (they toss swings)
January 30, 2013 2:26:40 AM

What card are you referring to?
January 30, 2013 2:28:16 AM

Well with a 170 budget Which would you recommend??
January 30, 2013 2:35:40 AM

Well the 7850 should play the games I listed pretty well right??

It will play better on the demanding ones, it will give more frame rate and a better experience.
a b Î Nvidia
January 30, 2013 2:37:42 AM

Agreed. I mean you do run into the ram issue with some of the games but you can scale back on things like resolution and AA/AF and you can get away with it.

If he had more to spare, yes a 7850 2GB will be better, or the 660 gtx, sometimes saving for it pays off.
January 30, 2013 3:12:13 AM

Yeah I guess I see where you both are coming from well would a 7850 2gb be better or a 660? Is it really worth the extra like almost $50 for the GTX 660 compared to the HIS 7850 you showed me?

Best solution

It might be if you can afford it, the 7850 1GB is a good card for your budget, in my opinion to step up for a 7850 2GB which costs around ~190$, it's worth to spend a bit more for the 660 gtx, it's better card, performance wise.
This one is cheap and really good :

January 30, 2013 3:22:43 AM

Agreed its very hard to get a 660 at the 200 dollar range without a MIR

It doesn't bottleneck the card in question.

January 30, 2013 3:30:12 AM

Agreed you are just fine with that CPU and those GPU's
January 30, 2013 3:33:08 AM

So I guess it's decided? I'm saving a little more to get the 660? Should I be worried of it changing prices or anything within lets say 2 to 4 weeks?
a b Î Nvidia
January 30, 2013 3:41:35 AM

It could vary the price, for higher or lower, it could be also the same, check newegg prices then, or open a thread here by then.
January 30, 2013 3:45:48 AM

Yeah hopefully it get's cheaper hah because on top of this $200 purchase I still have to fork out 30 for the power supply I need to get for it so I have some saving to do but hopefully it will all be worth it by then. Thanks guys for the help

My suggestion, don't cheap out on the psu, unless it's a good one, but the decent ones, are around 45$.

It's just a good idea in general to make sure you have a quality power supply. Skimping out on a power supply can take your computer up in one push of a button.

Funny thing is that Logisys psus said it supports sli, i don't want to hand over two cards on that psu.
January 30, 2013 4:23:11 AM

Hah yeah I don't think I would have ever even thought of doing that if I had that kinda money to SLI these cards I would have a much better PSU but I think I'm gonna get the corsair you both recommended! Again thanks guys I have had trouble of no one wanting to help with answering or they only answer once with a question and when I answer it they never say anything again hah.

January 30, 2013 4:26:05 AM

Hahah I was just looking for something cheap and with a lot of watts
January 30, 2013 4:27:01 AM

Thanks Big I wish I could have choose you both for best answer but I cant :/  but I am just as thankful to you as Dj ^^

That is quite the beast you have there xD it blows mine out of the water that's for sure I like the fan colors and the water cooling I hope to get one for my pc some day but right now that's a no go hah but that's a bit much of a power supply isn't it?? I'm not sure as I don't know to much about water cooling stuff or the pumps and how much power they take hah. What's your temps? (Idle and full load?)

At the time I purchased the power supply I was running a Sli configuration with two 560ti's I wanted a good gold plus certified power supply. And at the time I got it on sale for 150 I think it was around this time last year. CPU idles at 27 C and Max I'm running prime 95 to see what my temps sit at and I'm just under 60 at 56 C

here is my graphic card maximum temps this is me running heaven benchmark which the max temps there were 63 C and I'm idling at 31 C.

Ohh yeah makes sense haha it's a nice one though
