  1. Wow, I can't wait for more reviews of the 660Ti to come out, it's looking to carry on the trend of awesome GTX #60 cards, always being the best value!! Hopefully they keep its price under $300 like planned and then the 7800s and even the 7900s will drop in price...kinda mad I didn't wait for it :P


    I'm so proud they kept it a 2GB card, 1GB would have kept it from being as good as it is. I hope they don't do a 660 non-Ti, that's just annoying and confusing to consumers. If they choose to have a bridge between 650 and 660, it should be a 655 or something.


    looks like TT did a review of the 660ti just like they did with 670 last time, and the performance is almost at par with 7950..

  2. I got the MSI GeForce GTX 570 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC 1.28GB DDR5 320-bit and it runs everything maxed out at 1920x1080(average fps 45-50), the only exception is the ubersampling in The Witcher 2.The developer says this is intended only for those with both the best possible CPU and GPU available when game was released (X4 980 / i7 980X and 6990 / 590).


    that is the 570 i'm going to buy

  3. i've been waiting forever to upgrade my old gtx260 and i don't wanna wait anymore, so is gtx570 a good upgrade? i know gtx660 is just around corner but all rumor points out that it's going to be a $300 card which is way out of my budget. the 570 i'm going to buy from a friend is just 6month old and still under warranty. i want to consider 7850 as an option but i've been having nightmare with amd driver and now that they are not going to release monthly driver is really bugging me :glare:


    i play games at 1080p and i play skyrim and diablo 3 most of the times

  4. which one should i buy? the 850w model with 4 rail or the 750 with 2 rail, both psu sells at $50 and $40... i know this is a mainstream psu but at half the cost it's really appealing.

    i'm leaning towards the 750w model since it uses dual high amp rail and there is a lot of good review for this unit, i'm still unable to find a review for the 850w unit but $10 for an extra 100w is giving me a hard time to decide :wacko:

  5. My bad guys. *head hung in shame* :lol:


    And 2x8 pin easy at 650watt and if you bumped it to a 750watt, for not much more, then you could quite easily get 4x8pin and run cf or sli.


    i getting the new CM gx650, it's dirt cheap and quite good. 80plus bronze too. anyway you guys still think that 5870 is a better buy? i'm thinking that amd stop optimizing drivers for older card hence the drop in performance in newer DX11 title

  6. Hi,


    Is there a program out there that constantly monitors and measures frames per second? I am curious to see what my card pulls on different games. Anyone have any good suggestions?


    you can use Afterburner OSD for monitoring FPS and other things such as temperature but fraps is better for benchmarking

  7. thx guys for the opinion +1 one the 5870, it's a great card at my res but I'm putting it as my last choice cause running it will require 2 8pin not to mention running 2 of it in crossfire will cost me a ton on psu. it's the lightning series from msi and it runs on 2 8pin. and most of the review i saw 5870 beats 560 in higher res but in some newer DX11 title the score is lower than 560, I'm a bit worried by this cause I will be using this card for some time like my good old 260 so is it going to be a good choice for the long run?

  8. i'm still running the same spec from the siggy but i buy directly from retailer so i can't post a link for you :( there is no online shop like newegg here, fyi the cheapest 560ti here is rm750=236usd and the price for the cheapest 6850 is rm530=167usd. other card is priced in between. my budget is limited to usd240 cause i still need to buy a new psu

  9. i'm going to upgrade my gpu and after a few research i found 2 option with my current budget and i need and opinion on this


    1. 6850: use it for a while then crossfire later should i need more power (cheaper,low power, crossfire expandability)


    2. 560ti: stick it in and use it till i buy a new card (pricey, uses more power , better performance, no hassle on dual gpu scaling )


    i'll be buying a new psu too for this upgrade that is why i only have a few card in mind and the max i can go is 560ti, 6950 here cost 30 dollar more and 6870 is priced just 10 dollar cheaper than the cheapest 560ti so both is out of the question.



    i'll be playing at 1080p and i just saw a stock clearance sale for a MSI 5870 lightning which is cheaper than the 560ti, is it going to outperform the 560 if i oc the hell out of it? :blink:

  10. Cool, I could use a new one since my current psu is severely underpowered hehehe
