    Radeon Vs Nvidia right? haha I always go Nvidia lol :p

    I can't speak for the 7850, but I have a 560Ti And have no complaints. It runs super cool and quiet. When gaming it is at 60c which I was very impressed with because it has a cooling unit on it that looked sub-par.

    Looking around, it seems that the 7850 was slightly better on release, and new drivers shouldve increased the difference....

    Why the 560Ti rather than a 660 (non TI)? Just curious. :)

    Well worth stretching to though, if gaming is a priority. I'm well impressed with mine; it handles ME3 MP, Borderlands 2 etc flawlessly while barely raising a sweat. Mind you, I've also got a GTX 470 doing PhysX duty which doesn't hurt. :)

    The AA on Nvidia cards still beats ATI too, imho. I'd forgotten just how good the old Falcon 4.0:AF graphics could look until I took a flight with the 660Ti. Almost makes me want to take it up again.....

    Well, my cousin (whose PC this is for) isn't really a "PC gamer", but I have a hunch he'll very much enjoy it, so I just want him to have a good experience. He said that he doesn't want to spend more than the
