Best bang for the buck?

Alright, l have been comparing numbers for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost and the Radeon HD 7850.

I want to to know- Which one is better for the money? Both are priced at $150, so I'm having trouble deciding!

Also, I'm pairing the card with an AMD FX-6300 or 4100

the 7850 is much faster then a 650 Ti.


^7870 GHZ edition for $160 after promo & rebate.

 (and get the 6300, or at least the 4300, if you're feeling cheap- A phenom II X4 965BE, just... dear lord- DON'T GET A FIRST GEN FX 4 CORE!)

Alright then, what's the best Nvidia GPU for the money?


if you *must* have an Nvidia in the same power range, you're looking at a much higher cost, a 660 TI is nearly $200, and it's about 2/3rds way between a 7850 and a 7870, you might as well get a 760 for a smidge more.

right now, AMD is having a fire sale to ready up for the 9000 series. you can grab a 7950 for $220, and the 7950 competes respectably well against a GTX 770. unless your using an older verson of Adobe, AMD is the best bang for your buck.

Thanks man! I think I'm gonna go with the 7850 or 7870 for my GPU of choice!

That is inaccurate the 660ti will beat the 7870 all day it competes with the 7950 and 7870XT

Higher score is better.
