    I'm guessing 'swings and roundabouts'

    Suggesting there isn't much between the two cards in the previous post.

    I got confused by that also for a moment.

    660ti 7870 = perfect for 1080 gaming or below
    670 680 7970= perfect for 2560 gaming
    680 sli 4gb 7970 sli = perfect for 3 screens

    Thats how i see the market at the minute.

    Hopefully, I'll confirm that one for you early next week.

    i think im going to wait for the dust to settle somewhat

    im hoping AMD cut the price of the 7870 to £200 or below and then thats the best card for 1080p gaming

    I believe the 7870 just had a fairly big price cut :/

    That may be true, but a 7850 also plays everything maxed out at 1080p, and thats without its fairly OCing potential. And its only £170 :)

    7850 cuts very close to minimum frames on a few games (30fps) so while its perfectly fine now i doubt it would be in 12 months making it a poor investment for £170

    When overclocked (simply moving the sliders to maximum in CCC) that adds 5-10fps in most games. I left mine at stock because I can't usually tell the difference in high and ultra in most games, whereas 60fps does look better than 30 :)

    This review sold me on the 7870. If there is the ability to overvolt also, it'll be an epic little card for me.

    I entered a contest to win a GTX 660 ti. Now I was actually entering to win the card to give the card to my friend who has an old 9800GTX. Now I question if I do win, should I swap out my GTX 480 for it? Which is the faster card?

    The 660 is faster for gaming purposes.
