  1. Hey guys I'm from India, I want to make a futureproof gaming pc. I selected all the parts but I got stuck here. Which one gfx card should be good for all new games with smooth performance

    Here are the Cards:

    1. Asus NVIDIA GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

    In terms of raw performance, the HD 7950 will be your best option.

    Are you sure? but I saw benchmarks, it shows that nvidia give higher framerates.

    Sorry, my bad, I thought you had listed three 660 Ti's.

    The 670 will give you more raw performance than a 7950, especially at lower resolutions.

    However, if you are gaming at higher resolutions (2560x1600) or using multiple monitors, then the 7950 might have an edge (plus it's better value)

    so gtx 670 is a better option for high performance gaming.

    The 670 is great but the 7970 can be had for slightly more money and is a lot better card. I personally would get a 7950 and overclock it to over 1100 mhz and it will be on par with a stock 7970 in some cases and even beat a gtx 670

    Dont pay for factory OC'ed cards when you could do it yourself. If you dont know how to that is a different story. 7970 is the best choice like Klepto said, but if you are not in a rush, 8000 series cards are said to be released in March

    FWIW, sometimes factory overclocked cards come with better cooling solutions built-in.

    I actually took apart 1 and it was identical

    I did say, "sometimes." What I meant was on some factory overclocked versions you can see the difference in the coolers compared to stock versions such as three fans instead of two or larger fans, that sort of thing.

    :D. that would be completely worthless for AMD, they are already struggling against intel and nvidia. they need the 8000 series to be a success.

    I thought the same thing when I first looked over the news I just missed that it was oem only lol I was thinking wow AMD really.
