Hello,
I can't decide which card to choose im gonna either choose the GTX 570 (1.25gb) or the Radeon HD 7850 (2gb)

There is only 20$ diffrence. The GTX seems to be better in most games but also takes 2x amount of electricity, where the Radeon HD 7850 is a little slower in some games but is much less power requiring

    says 7850 is better for future proofing. I just got my 7850 card from amazon for 149.99, most of the 470 cards were a bit pricier, but i got the 1gd5 instead of the 2gd5
  2. If you can afford it just get the 7870, its a little more but is faster than both of the cards you've mentioned.

  3. I'd recommend the 7850 over the 570
  4. You pretty much nailed it. Both cards should be pretty similar in performance depending on model/clocks. But the 7850 is going to use a lot less power.
  5. Similar performance, the 7850 is cheaper, it has more VRAM, it uses less power, it's newer and thus supports newer standards (DX 11.1 etc.)... I don't see how the GTX 570 can compete.
  6. I wont be overclocking my card just for your information its what comes out best stock and will be best to play games like BF3 Crysis 2-3 World of Warcraft Planetside 2 ect. But the Radeon HD 7850 2gb is 20$ MORE than the GTX 570 dont know if this helped :)

    Also the specs of the computer im gonna buy/play on is


    AMD QUADCORE (4x3.6GHZ) FX4100
    - ASUS MOTHERBOARD, M5A78
    - 1000GB HARDDISK, 7200RPM
    - 8GB DDR3 1600MHZ HYPER-X KINGSTON RAM
    - 650W STRØMFORSYNING, STØJSVAG, 17DB
  7. The Radeon HD 7850 2GB is cheaper than the GTX 570 in most places.
