GTX 660 or ATI 7870 ?


Hello,

I' am getting a good deal on Sapphire ATI 7870 for 17k.So should I go with 7870 or 660 is better choice ?? I found that these cards are pretty closely matched except that nVidia has PhysX.

Also is Sapphire good in performance and warranty thing ?

PS : Is getting 7850 advisable if I consider price to performance ratio ?

Go for 7870. Its more power efficient than Nvidia cards.

Re: GTX 660 or ATI 7870 ?

I personally prefer nvidia over amd cause of better driver support and much more features like Physx, Cuda, Adaptive vsync, TXAA etc... but I heard AMD recently released a new driver which gave 7870 a massive 10% pure performance increase that changed the game. Now 7870 is looking the better choice and for 17k its pretty decent. However if you can wait for a month than 7890 is on the way, which I am sure will also effect the price of 7870 and 7850.

Re: GTX 660 or ATI 7870 ?

whichever is cheaper. However 660 consumes roughly around 20W more power but performs slightly better in few games, specially in Nvidia optimized games.I got MSI 660 tf3 OC 2gb edition (Rs.16.8k from flipkart) and maxing out bf3 at 1080p in old rig. With physx enabled I got around 25 fps in Batman arkham city bechmark (everything max at 1080p). I moved to green team this time.

Re: GTX 660 or ATI 7870 ?

I would buy the 7870
A 7870 performs very close to a 7950 and also gives more/less similar performance to 660ti.
Also efficient in power consumption.
It has a very good headroom for overclocking.
So 7870 is best VFM

If a 660ti comes in your budget then 660ti has a little more advantage(physx) over 7870.

Also to all those suggesting 660, any specific reason why ? In all benchmarks i saw 660 is kinda trailing behind 7870 ghz edition.

better drivers, more games are optimized well for Nvidia .Just lock down your budget and get whatever you are getting in that price
