Default Gtx 660 ti clocked Vs. HD 7950 Boost clock - 02-20-2013, 19:35 | posts: 1

Hi.

Like the title says, I need som help with desideing what videocard to buy.

I only use my computer for gameing, and I play on one screen in 1920x1080.

Should I pick the gtx 660 ti clocked or the 7950 boost clocked card?

Of the 2 cards I been looking at the;



MSI GeForce GTX 660TI Power Edition



And the



HIS Radeon HD 7950 IceQ X2 Boost Clock



They cost about the same in my country.



It dosent have to be the MSI og HIS card, I just need to know, what card is best for game on one screen and in 1920x1080, the GTX 660 ti clocked or the HD 7950 boosted?

that HIS IceQ x2 will destroy the 660ti. hell, it'll beat a gtx 670 more often than not at 1080p. then there's overclocking, more vram, less power consumption. easy choice really.

Yup.

If you plan on OC'ing the 7950 is the way to go for sure. Especially when considering those two cards, that HIS IceQ X2 is one of the best 7950's on the market.

Look through your games, read reviews, see which card the majority of your games favors.....then buy that one.
