GTX660 or HD 5970 ??

Hi Guys ,

I'm absolutely stumped as to what card I should purchase for my system , At the moment I am deciding between these cards :
- XFX HD 5970 Black Edition ---- 267 $
- Gigabyte GTX660 (non ti ) OC ---- 294 $
I Live in Jordan and thats why its expensive :\

I'm playing games @ 1920*1080 , Someone said to me that the HD5970 lags because of 1GB memory !
(Sory for my bad English)

Plzz help
Thanks !

    Thanks 4 help , But the HD5970 faster Than GTX660 , right ? but im afraid cuz its Old and 1gb , is it matters ??
  3. dont think so. also its only got 1gig of vram thats nogood.

    660 for the win
  4. The Radeon HD 5970, in theory, should perform a lot faster than the GeForce GTX 660 in general. 78% faster i think. But the problem is that, 5970 only has 1 gig of vram. speed isn't everything.
  5. no its not even close. thats doesnt even make sense.

    sorry for the late replay you will find taipei next to pc maker in the same side as city center i think away 500 meters just ask about pc maker its next to it i think they had it on sale in taipei about 195 jd gigabyte one
  13. get the 660. 2gb ram makes a difference in most new titles. not to mention better dx11 performance than the old AMD 5xxx series cards.
  14. yep 2 gig 660 as said here.
