    Radeon HD 6870 vs GTX 750 ti

    I have the 6870, just curios.. would it be worth it to upgrade? I know performance is better... but by that much? Or, would I be better off saving a little more and going higher... or.. get an R7?

    What PSU and CPU do you have?? What case?? What is your budget??

    I would get a GTX660 or R9 270 if possible.

    Re: Radeon HD 6870 vs GTX 750 ti

    I used to have a 6870 card and I think you would notice an improvement but (imho) not enough to justify spending ~£110-£120 pound, a 6870 and 5870 are not massively different so googe bencrmark comparison between 5870/6870 and the 750Ti and you get an idea of them improvement. However, much like CAT-THE-FIFTH I would advise you save a bit longer and maybe get a 270X or 660 (they are more expensive and perhaps your budget is tight but you will notice the difference much more I think.

    750 Ti has only 128bit...

    you should go for a GTX650 Ti boost 192bit

    I thought the 750ti out performed the 650ti boost in almost every situation?

    As to your question, only upgrade if you're not satisfied with your current situation. If you're going to, then the 750ti is a very good product

    Re: Radeon HD 6870 vs GTX 750 ti

    The hexus 750 Ti review has a 6870 for comparison purposes. The difference is perhaps bigger than you might expect: 25% - 50% depending on game at 1080p

    OTOH, the R9 270 is quicker again by about the same amount (that is, 25% - 50% faster than the 750 Ti) while only costing £15 more.

    Interestingly, the 650 Ti Boost is generally a shade quicker than the 750 Ti.

    Re: Radeon HD 6870 vs GTX 750 ti

    At £150 there is no competition to the R9 270X really. Your PSU is more than man enough for the job

    The R9 270 can be found for as low as £120 if you want to save a few £££, and when overclocked is basically equivalent to the 270X. Or for nearer £100 you can choose between the R7 265 and the 750 Ti, depending on whether you want a bit more performance or much lower power consumption. It's all a matter of preference really.

    But if you've got £150 to spend, get a 270X

    I'd say to go for a 7850 personally, they are cheaper than the gtx 660, but are the closest competitive option.
