Now have money spare after buying few new computers and wondered what was better in everyway (Or just better in oun opinion) in power usage texture per frame and textiles and so on, so they are:
Radeon Sapphire HD 4670 1GB DDR3
Nvidia GeForce GT 630 (440 I think it's called aswell?) 1GB DDR3
Radeon Sapphire HD 7770 1GB DDR5
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti
Radeon Sapphire HD 7850 2GB DDR5
Nvidia GeForce GTX 660/660 Ti 1GB DDR5
And finally the HD3000 Integrated 1GB GPU
I know strange line up, and strange to have an integrated graphics card on there but it's what my sister bought and have no idea wtf it is....And wanna know where it stands, I know it's integrated and stands no chance but eh!
Considering most of you have an old vid card you can sell. The 7850 is actually free with the 2 free games. Just food for thought. I sold my 6870 for $118, paid $170 for the 7850.
Then 2 games , 1 worth $44, the other $59...do the math. I made $51. In pure numbers, I made money by buying the 7850 right now. If you cant sell your previous card....then it's still the best overall deal. So instead of making money, you're spending around $80 for a brand new vid card that can virtually match the 7870 when overclocked. Apparently I've heard stories of people getting the 7850 to 1200 core. Mine is locked at 1050 max though. Even still.... when is the last time you saw a GPU overclock THAT much. I personally have never seen it and I've owned a good 10 graphics cards. Back in the day, you could barely OC at all, if you did...you might get artifacts immediately. My old Nvidia cards never liked to be OC'd. I did not try to OC my GTX 275 though. MY 8800GT did not like it. This card however at stock is 860. Mine came at 900....I'm at 1000. If in deed I can hit the max without voltage OCing, then great. I'm also at +10 power and 1300 memory.

You need to mod MSI afterburner to get higher OC's
Or use Sapphire Trxixx
