    Default Question/Suggestion

    As the tile says I have a question running in mind regarding GPU performance.

    Which is a better card in between A and B if the price is more or less same(500-600 bucks up/down).

    *A and B represent the products in question 1 and 2.

    1. gtx660 and HD7870.

    2. gtx660ti and HD7950.

    Because it comes with a great game bundle, and has TressFX and we're witnessing an uprising from AMD

    With good amount of OC, some 7870s perform very close to stock 7950s. With the current driver support and other goodies from AMD, the choice should be obvious.

    That question hugely depends on your monitor resolution.

    Like in 1600x900 res, a gtx 660 literally bangs a 7950. 7870 is waaay too behind. 660ti comes close to 7970.

    But, the scenario completely changes in 1920x1080. In there, 7950 is better than GTX660Ti. GTX660 is left way behind.

    GTX 660 is better than the AMD 7870..plus there are games which work better on AMD than Nvidia and vice-versa..so they have different performances.IF u want to know which card is better than the card has to better than the other one in both cases[i.e in games where AMD rules and games where Nvidia rules] but 660 is better than 7870 and slightly 7950 too in such cases,and it costs a lot less..same goes for the GTX 660 Ti...so u see all the cards u mentioned here are almost equal each having its disadvantages and advantages...so its ur decision at the end of the day. btw heres a link to the benchmark scores-
