  1. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Aria having it in stock and with a free game is a win as far as I am concerned.

    The cooler is almost certainly worse than the Twin Frozr version, this is clearly a budget edition, although coming...
  2. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Yeah that's not bad, no bundled games, but neither does the 660.
  3. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Oh and both sites do deals with quidco:

    Overclockers do free shipping (expires 1st oct)

    Dabs do 2% cashback (almost £4) shipping is free anyway

    This is probably the cheapest card that will...

    In actual fact it seems that AMD cards have risen slightly in price. There were a number of bargains that sadly seem to have expired.

    Here are a few options:

  5. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Also as I mentioned in your other thread beware of the horrendous noise.

    The 7950 starts out as a noisy card, and while most manufacturers manage to slash that noise down to reasonable levels XFX...
  6. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    While AMD generally has an edge at multi-screen resolutions it's not usually that big of an edge to reverse a game that favours Nvidia hardware.

    You increase the resolution and you are increasing...

    Actually no, the 660 Ti wins in Skyrim @ 1080p 4xAA which is surely the most popular setting.
    It also wins at Civ 5 under the same settings, but hey lets call those two a draw, because the...
  8. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    The GTX 660 cards are right where they need to be in price terms, slightly below the 7870 and provides equal performance on average.

    You just have to look at the games you play and make your...
  9. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Yeah I cherry picked to make a point, but I didn't pretend that was typical. The Toms article cherry picked and then tried to make a general point out of it.

    Let's have a look at the conclusion:...
  10. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Oh absolutely I agree.

    Some people make up ridiculous stories about the 192bit bus and how it can't handle MSAA and future games. It's mostly rubbish.

    When you turn up the settings the 660...
  11. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    But you can sell the 3 game bundle that comes with the 7800 series for around £30 too.
  12. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Actually I don't think that is true at all, when we are talking about a bottleneck (such as memory) it's called that because it doesn't let the other components work to their fullest.

    Adding extra...
  13. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Yes it highlights what everyone already knew, that is why it is pointless. We all know the memory is the weak point on the 660 Ti, we also know how it performs in actual games rather than what is...
  14. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Yeah and the galaxy card is worse, so let's not even discuss it :)

    I said I liked the way they test, not the website or the way it's run.

    The fact that they test by features rather than just...
  15. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Wow, more price cuts, awesome :)

    Have to say though that article in Toms is just pointless, just telling us stuff we already knew.

    "We really can’t recommend Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660 Ti if you...
  16. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    The 660 Ti and 7950 are pretty close, it depends upon the games you play now and the games you anticipate playing in the future.
    But most of all it depends upon the price.

    I mean when you can...
  17. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    I'm sure you are right about AMD drivers improving, but I'm not sure I follow your logic here!
  18. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    I'll change my mind again in a couple of days :P
  19. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    OK, I take everything back I said, because this 7950 is better and cheaper than the MSI version mentioned above:

  20. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    For right now, for BF3, for the two MSI cards the 660 Ti will perform better, especially at factory clocks.
    It will also do so using less power and with less noise.

    That isn't to say you...
  21. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Rumours suggest incoming price cuts for the 660 Ti which would make the decision easier:

    At the moment the 7950 and 660 Ti are very close,...
  22. [Help] Re: New i5 ivy bridge build...What Graphics Card Should I get?

    Well BF3 and Civ 5 are both games that run well on Nvidia hardware, BF3 especially.

    It depends upon whether you are happy to spend the whole budget, or just enough to get good performance?
