16 Flares 16 Flares ×

If you are looking for a new video card for your system then there has never been a better time to buy. Today we are looking at a cross section of high value for money AMD and Nvidia partner cards in a round up article targeting the budget to the high end. We have picked some of the best looking solutions on the market today. If you are looking for a new model to handle the latest Direct X 11 games, then which is the one for you?

ACC 0615 DxO Graphics card round up March 2013

Today’s article won’t be featuring the AMD HD7970, HD7990 or Nvidia GTX680 or GTX 690/Titan. Not because we don’t like them, but because very few people can afford to buy them. The highest cost models in the test today are custom versions of AMD’s HD7950 and Nvidia’s GTX670, both very popular solutions. We also look at the GTX650, GTX660, GTX 660 Ti, HD7770, HD7790, HD7850 and HD7870 from Gainward, Zotac, XFX and Sapphire.

    I have wanted the HD7950 now for quite a while, but cant afford it. ive decided to wait until the next gen, later this year. good article, shows the good GTX660ti performance well.

    GTX670 is great, but GTX660 ti is the bargain right now. I like that Sapphire card though, im sick of fan noise :(

    Greg, you might want to look at the Asus Direct CUII version of the GTX660Ti – I got one recently to replace a Gainward GTX260GS and the reduction in fan noise is astonishing.

    I agree with Andrew. Even though the Gainward GFX cards are very durable, but if you want high quality Nvidia cards that are also silent you should look at the ASUS cards with the Direct CUII cooling solution. It’s really no comparison.

    This seems very disingenuous. There’s hardly any difference between the avg. 670 and 7970 prices. Does put nVidia at the top of the charts with the O/C’d 670 though. :

    Well its not meant to be disingenuous. the GTX680 is the flagship to battle against the HD7970. If we included the HD7970 then we would need to include the GTX680, sometimes seen for £350.

    The point was to try and get a variety of cards and not focus on the flagship single GPU cards.

    Bear in mind the GTX670 didn’t get a top award in this test, due to the pricing. The Sapphire HD7950 Vapor X did due to cost, cooling, noise etc.
