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 !

660 as its more recent and uses less energy and heats less of course.

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.

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.
