Hey guys, I was looking at some video cards for my budget gaming build I can't quite put my finger on which video card is going to be better. Between these two are there are big performance jumps? Am I going to be better off buying the bigger better video card or can I stick to the cheaper one.
Definetly a better cooler, but its usefullness is questionable on a card that produces such a small amount of heat in the first place, any of them will be quiet. If your spending that much I think a better choice would be to go for a cheaper 2GB card, rather than a more expensive 1GB card. It will last longer, and depending on your resolution have more performance.
Thats not to mention the ridiculous overclocks it can pull off, 40% clock increases are not uncommon. That will put it closer to the performance of more expensive cards like a 7950, rather than a 650ti.
Yes, that power supply could run that system twice over.
Thanks so much mate!
So I calculated it out with pricing and both these two cards end up being the same price at the end. If I buy the 7850 through Microcenter I can get a 2 year warranty on it for 10$ less then newegg.
So you meant to tell me ASHISH65, it doesn't matter how much RAM or what type of motherboard to stick these video cards in and you will get the same results? Wrong! Not all performance to a video card stays the same on a motherboard. While you are sitting over there debating about which GPU is better, you forgot compatibility and requirements.
