Hi guys, i need help in choosing which of these graphic cards is the best one to choose from?

PowerColor HD7950 3GB GDDR5 [$365.09]
Asus HD7870-DC2-2GD5 [$417.82]
PowerColor HD7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 (V2) [$236.02]
ZOTAC GTX660TI AMP! 2GB DDR5 [$345.42]
MSI N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC [$392.13]
Asus GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5 [$383.53]

Which among of these has the best bang for the buck?

What best GPU would you recommend on a 1k to 1.2k budget?

and what PSU would i need? (say some of them are power/oc edition).

P.S. I know they are fairly high priced than what they are, but theres not much of a choice (because i dont live in the US/Canada/).

Thanks!! :D

Get the 7870. The 7950 is considerably faster, but offers worse bang for your buck. Not a huge fan of the 660 Ti (I'm an AMD GPU guy), but it's a solid card.

Any quality 550W unit is plenty of power. Something like the Corsair builder series is probably the best unit for a budget build. Not top of the line, but still good quality and isn't likely to fall over dead like cheaper ones tend to.

Acutally the best bang for buck nowadays is the HD7870 LE. Its inbetween the HD7950 and HD7870. SO get that. If not and you have the cash, get an HD7950 Sapphire vapor-x... My Dual-x is currently OCd to 1180MHz and its awesome.

Can't seem to find an LE version on newegg...
