    So I'm needing to replace my old 9800 GT+ on a budget. Currently Newegg has the EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST for $159.00, and the MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB for $124.00.

    Which one should I pick if I'm going for BF4 at high resolution?

    Darnit. The Twin Frozr sold out. So ... um. Turn this into a cheap AMD vs Nvidia advice thread?

    From what I read the boost is faster than the 7850. Though don't quote me on that as I have no idea how they overclock.

    The most important thing for BF4 is VRAM. And that means 7950 or above. I wouldn't trust any 2GB Nvidia card further than I could throw it (though I admit that's quite a long way hahaha).
