Replacing Sapphire HD 7770 with an other card, what should it be?


I have had problems with the Sapphire HD 7770 and it is not solved yet, so I decided to replace it, I only have one day left to replace it!! so please help me choose according to my budget which is $180! (prices are higher in Egypt, so take it easy on me)

Currently I have found this card (which fits my budget): $156.67
Galaxy GeForce® GTX 650 Ti GC 1GB GDDR5

Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Core Clock: 966 MHz
CUDA Cores: 768
Effective Memory Clock: 5400 MHz
Memory Size: 1GB
Memory Interface: 128-bit
Memory Type: GDDR5 (price is lower, performance is lower as well??): $141.75
GPU: GeForce GTX 560
Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Core Clock: 736 MHz
Shader Clock: 1472 MHz
CUDA Cores: 288
Effective Memory Clock: 3828 MHz

That's all I found, respond ASAP because I have got no time, one day is remaining to send the card back for replacement!

  1. Hi,

    I would rather spend the extra money on the GTX650Ti variant, it has got a lot more power behind it than the GTX560.
  2. Unfortunately the maximum I can pay is $180 :/ and the card may be expensive now (economical issues in Egypt) so I will see if that 650 ti wont be more than $180 and I will get it.
  3. I need to confirm one last time, should I go for it and buy the 650ti?

    Found another card!
    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB GDDR5 - $194

    GPU: GeForce GTX 650
    Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
    Core Clock: 1032 MHz
    Shader Clock: 1032 MHz
    CUDA Cores: 768

    Effective Memory Clock: 5400MHz
    Memory Size: 2GB
    Memory Interface 128-bit
    Memory Type: GDDR5

    Is it worth the price increase?
  4. That's too bad you can't get the 7770 resolved.

    650 TI is the better buy. Similar performance, but the 650 Ti uses less power and has better DX11 performance.
  5. So the 650 ti will deliver the same performance as 7770! that is great as I was concerned that it would perform less or so.. however 650 ti has its perks, PhysX and better DX 11 performance!

    I have to confirm though, 1 GB or 2 GB? also Galaxy or Gigabyte? thats it and thanks!

    Additional Information:
    Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.2GHz

    650ti is faster than 7770. Tom have placed it one tier higher than 7770. For ur resolution its perfect can run any game on high-ultra. For ur resolution 1gb vram is more than enough and gigabyte is better. Make sure u have good 450-500watt psu

    Unfortunately the only model available in Egypt for Gigabyte is 2GB vram, whilst the 1 GB is the Galaxy..

    I also sometimes tend to play on 1080p (my TV) so I guess 2GB will be good.. my settings wont bottleneck the card right? because with the HD 7770 (after sending it back) I had a thought that my rams are the issue? or maybe the processor? though I got that processor for around $400 back then.. I doubt it is it..

    Maybe it is my power supply? though it is a 450Watts 85% effective Antec VP450P I doubt it is... maybe it was the card itself that had issues, I am glad I sent it back.. I will go for the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB GDDR5
