Which graphics card is better. I am trying to build a gaming PC that can run Skyrim,Batman Arkham City, Battlefield 3 and many other high-end games smoothly on decent settings. I'm looking for a graphics card around $250. Price cant be higher than $300. Give me some advice and opinions below. I'm really stuck between the two graphics cards!


Also since the 7750 is cheaper would buying two be better than getting the cards above?

So for most games it seems as if the 7850 is better.

i would go for the 7850 since it has 2gb of vram vs the 560 ti 1gb. which well make a big difference in battlefield 3, but if you want the physx feature for arkham city then take the 560 ti

Does Arkham City look terrible without Physx. If it still looks good then i'm strongly going to consider the 7850

In my opinion Nvidia > AMD even if the AMD card is faster and cheaper. Thats just my opinion based on my experience. Don't let me stop you from getting an AMD card though.

no it doesn't look bad at all on 7850, to me personally the physx feature is gimmicky and only a selected few game truly use it. you you want a video showing the difference with physx on and off here.

From what he posted, he plays BF3, am I wrong? BF3 performs better on GTx 560 Ti so with 2GB it should do a bit better, am I still wrong or what? With 2GB of Vram for high end games, the GTx 560Ti should get at least few-10 FPS higher... BF3 uses more than 1.5GB so since the 560Ti they tested only have 1GB than it means that you can gain more FPS from more vRAM...

Even if you do get that in benchmark, you cant beat a OC GTx 560Ti at BF3 with 2GB... BF3 feature more of Nvidia video card than Radeon...

Who cares about 2 fps more in one game when the 7850 crush the 560 ti in all other games. I play BF3 at 1080p ultra 4 msaa no prob. Unless you are using multi monitor you wont see the different xcept on your electricity bill ;)
