    those are not nvidia original, nvidia uses a different theme for their graphs, and nvidia doesn't start at 0
    Crap Daddy says thanks.

    I would hope it's faster than a 7850. It is $100 bucks more expensive afterall.

    Those number are ridiculous and arbitrary.

    They were published by videocardz, I just wanted to share, I'm sure you know better but anyway it's something we can comment for a few days.

    Bah, I'm confusing the already released 660Ti with the plain 660. :banghead:

    That's another good point. The latest rumor is 229$.

    Why would you say that?

    It can't be since the 7850 is 200$ and the 7870 can be had under 250$. I understand why NV is still not decided about pricing. AMD is very aggressive lately and the 660Ti is far from a smash hit regarding sales.

    LOL cause that graph is like asking a campaigning politician who you should vote for.



    One thing we can expect from nvidia is that they are always overpriced and cost more than Radeon.

    If the 660Ti's were maybe £30-50 cheaper I would have snapped one up.

    Right now I am still contemplating between a 660Ti, 670 or a 7950, or even going 2x 7850.

    Wait just a little bit more. Another rumor says the Ti will also come down in price this week (don't know how retailers react in UK). Anyway, after the whole 600 lineup will be out I think prices will settle. The 7950 has a very attractive price in the US (that is if you want to overclock since out of the box it's more or less like a GTX660Ti)

    660ti is out because the 7950 is the same price. OC the 7950 and you can surpass the 670 or at leased keep up more or less game pending. 7850 CF is expensive but they can surpass any GPU less GTX 690 and maybe on par with 6990 GTX 590.

    Yeah normally 7850 CF would be expensive but there is an offer on this Sapphire HD 7850 1GB.

    Whats that worth?

    You have only 1 GB VRAM available so it's not quite OK given that more and more games require more and more VRAM. 2 x 2GB 7850 would be OK but ask around about microstuttering and CF support or possible problems. For a single monitor 1080p I would go with single card config (GTX670/HD7970) same price as 2 x 7850
    Nokiacrazi says thanks.

    Sick of hearing about micro stuttering when it's just really not a big issue. I had CF back in 09 and back then the CF bugs were a non issue logic dictates AMD and nvidia have only improved since then.
