new gpu

Post by PC G@MER 01 »

High I'm trying to decide witch of these 3 gpu's are the best for gaming

msi gts 450 R1073
kfa2 gt 640 R980
Gigabyte hd 6770 R1027
kfa2 gtx 550 ti R1167
kfa2 gtx 650 ex oc R 1256
Gigabyte hd 7750 oc R1172

The games I want to play are battlefield 3,Hitman absolution,COD MW3,Assassins creed 3, and GTA 5 when they are released. I want to play these games at 1280x720 on high and maybe at 1920x1080 on low.

my system: intel core i3 540
foxconn h55mxv
6gb ram
Thermaltake 450watt 80+
PS. no i can't afford anything better.

Your really only looking at either the gtx 650 or 7750 when it comes to the age perspective. I would throw in the 6770 and 550ti since they were decent budget cards. Have a look at toms hardware or 3d guru for some benchmarks.

If possible spending a slight bit more for the gtx650ti would be a better buy.

But if not the plain 650 and the 7750 are the best two there.

I'd put the 650 over the 7750. Seems the 7770 is slower than the 650.

How will the gtx 650 do in those games. The gtx 650ti is R1000 more than the gtx 650.

this is a review on the 650ti but the 650 is included in the benchmark results. Seems it will give you perfectly acceptable fps even at 1080p and at high(ish) settings:

If you shop around you will find that the 650ti is not 1000 more(there is an msi 650ti for R1766 at rebeltech). But the 650ti is a noticeable amount faster :wink:

I'm brand loyal to MSI. Gigabyte is the only other brand I would recommend without hesitating too much. Most brands use stock settings anyway so no brand should be bad unless you start seeing them at a much cheaper price point. Then you should start asking questions, even with good brands.

If you head over to the Carbonite forums you could score a sweet deal on a second hand gpu, with all the upgrading that happens around this time of year. You'd probably get one still within warranty too.

I know nothing about kfa2 but have a look at this msi one, about R100 more but still below R1400:

For R1300 I'd say go for the HD6950. Try to see if you can't get postal delivery.

Seems so, differs a bit from game to game.

Very similar I would say. I think overall though the 650 is faster

Read this Conclusion of a review: LINK

On the whole, it doesn't look like it gains that much over the 7750. What happened to the 6950 etc?
