hi guys im building a budget system i just dont know what gpu to go with.
Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB, or
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB
Thanks
 
Solution
GTX560 Ti is massively more powerful than the 7770. Make sure also you don't confuse it with the GTX650 Ti, which is a lot less powerful (though still better than the 7770).

If 180 is your maximum, then you can't buy the GTX 560ti 1GB as its above that. However, you can go with the 7770 but its much worse than the GTX 560ti. If you want something that performs in between, go for the GTX 650ti then :)

OP lists the GTX560 Ti in his original post, so I guess he's found one at that price?

i think i should go for the 560 ti. does zotac make quality gpus though?
 


The GPU is always made by nVidia, Zotac just manufacture the board and the other components. I wasn't sure about them when they first appeared a few years ago, but I think they're quality - tend to get good reviews. They're not a super cheap brand like Palit.

i was just worried coz on the specs page of the 560ti it says minimum psu must be 450w
 


Which is exactly what you're running :) Disregard what the manufacturer says anyway - they don't know what else you have in your system already! For all they know, you're running hundreds of watts of other hardware... or next to nothing above the essentials. They just choose a number that seems like a safe bet for somebody with a load of extra stuff in there. They couldn't say for sure what you need without knowing your other hardware.
