    I like it a lot. Especially with the heatsink over the memory. 1.2Ghz easily?

    I would concur that your best bet is the 7850, I won't mention the other good altrnatives as you only mentioned the 2 cards you were considering. The 7850 is indeed a bit faster and on a dual screen setup the extra memory will be helpful, however if you really are on a very tight budget, the 560Ti is around 10%- 15% cheaper for that 8% performance improvement somebody mentioned earlier...... although I would still go with the 7850!

    I suppose the question you should really be asking yourself is...... do you need the money in your pocket more than the 8%!!

    Well after taking a closer look at power consumption of the 7850 and the GTX 560Ti 448 core (similar performance), I think I'm definitely going to go for the 7850.

    The GTX 560 448 consumes nearly 300W under full load, whereas the 7850 consumes only 100W under load! Plus, I've seen pretty much everyone clocking these to around 1050Mhz on the core, all at stock voltages which is sure to beat the GTX 560Ti 448, with the GTX 570 feeling the heat as well. I also like that AMD is including 2GB of VRAM as standard. I've heard BF3 can eat that up easily!

    I've also heard the ASUS 7850 with its voltage control will alow over 1100 on the core and 1500 on the mem. Thats sure to breath down the neck of the 7870! I'd rather get an SSD for the extra money spent on the 7870.

    Not sure if it will beat GTX560ti448 in benchmarks or in all games but it is a very nice modern card for the money. 28nm HD7850 is fast and power efficient.

    I recieved an HD 7850 yesterday. Its the MSI twin Frzr III edition. Overclocks like a beast. So far it does 1050/5700 on stock volts and 1200/5700 on 1150 mV. Temps maxed out at 68-70 !!! without a sound from the card I hasten to add. Very nice.

    Shame I have the bottlenecks of all bottlenecks at the moment as I am running a temporary phenom II system which only clocks to 3.5Ghz LOL. I have just sold my SB gear and I'm more than likely going socket 2011 with another one of these bad boys in crossfire. Can't wait :)

    EDIT - Here you go :)

    congrats on your purchase! now post some benches at 1200 core to convince people this is alot better than 560ti 448.

    It's not worth it. I only have a phenom II at 3.5ghz with DDR2 temporarily :laugh: (My mum's old system). I already know from previously running an i5 2500k at 4.5ghz and GTX 560ti @1090 that it is bottlenecking hard in benches.

    Can't wait to get my new gear and truly unleash the beast :rockout: Stock vcore at load is 1082mv.

    Scan buddy. Had to use Asus GPU tweak though in order to raise the overclocking limits. A whole big thread on it here - http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18389760

    EDIT - Apologies for double post, thought I was editing my original post above.

    Nice. So was the voltages locked for you in afterburner as well? At 1200, its probably a monster!

    Afterburner wouldn't function correctly. And I agree 1200 is nice but I really want the right CPU to do it justice.

    As far as I was aware, the 448 560ti is about 4 - 5% slower than a 570 across the board, this shows a 570 10% faster than a 7850 across the board..... probably don't mean that much in reality though.

    Without completing your system specs in the control panel that will be difficult to tell!
