If you're still thinking, just wait. :laugh:

I think a 7770 is going to quickly disappoint you. A 7850 is the lowest I'd go in ATi land these days.


And an HD7850 demands two 6-pin PCI-E plugs; the HD7770 requires a mere one. (And that is quite aside from the $100USD difference in price.)

You are thinking of the 256-bit memory bus, which makes sense for 1920x1080 @ High or Ultra - that, at least to me, defines the beginning of the high end.

However, 1920x1080 is the cap for my display, and the odds of my getting one with a taller resolution any time soon are nearly nil (as are those of my adding a display).

Therefore, my going that spendy is practically pointless.

I'm thinking more like 1680x1050 @ High (sensible, given a 23" display - a single one), and therefore the HD7770 or equivalent (three months time). If anything, I'm thinking HD8000 will launch (paper launch) *after* Crysis 3, not before.

7850 is one 6 pin PCI-E, the 7870 is 2x6. They're not even close to $100 apart, the 7850 1GB is less than $50, depending on the model.

Plus, the 7850 overclocks well, and is decent card in general... the 7770 had a hard time beating the card it replaced, the 6850, except for power usage.

You can get whatever you want, I'm just saying that the 7770 is already having a hard time hitting 30 fps at 1680 in some games.

I'm excited for this game, never played Crysis, played Crysis 2, and currently re-playing Crysis 2 on "Supersoldier" to get back into it and for Xbox Achievements.

Relaese date is February
I have exams coming up from March 4th to March 9th

Guess, it'll buy me some time to see weather 7770 is enough for High @1680x1050 or not

Does anyone know if that MP alpha thingy is still going or has it been turned off/suspended by now?

I can't wait for this to come out! It looks really awesome! And plus, it's a FPS (First Person Shooter), which I love as I just love FPS's. They have a lot of action and weapons. I got one for Christmas, although it's a mixed game as it fits in multiple genres. It's called Mass Effect 3.

Pre-ordered it today, got the special edition that gives me early MP unlocks.

Now if I only played MP (Got the early unlocks in Crysis 2 as well, haven't even logged a single minute in MP though)

I am not being sarcastic, but you sir/ma'am made me smile when I read this post, for many reasons. :)
Also, like FPS's, get Battlefield 3, you will not regret it.

The lowest-priced HD7850 - at Newegg, mind - is $165USD. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814161426
Where the HD7850 excels - and I make no bones about it - is *bandwidth*, and especially compared to HD77xx.
The same is, in fact, true of GTX550Ti, let alone GTX650Ti, compared to GTX650.
GTX650Ti now undercuts HD7850 in price, but outperforms it. I'm a long-time ATI (now AMD) GPU guy; however, Ti Kepler outperforms HD7850 at the same price - unless you are an even more rampant fanboi, you can't ignore that.

Case in point - this 2GB GTX650Ti from EVGA: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130840
Despite HD7850 having more bandwidth, this card eats its lunch - and at the same price.

I am willing to hazard a guess that the same games that you complain that HD77xx struggles to hit 30 fps in are games that use lots of GPU bandwidth. Name those games - and go back and check if any or all are GPU bandwidth pigs.

I maintain that if you're buying a card, today, and you want to keep it for more than a year, a 7770 would be a silly choice.

I'd like what you're smoking, the 650Ti is not anywhere near the 7850. Nvidia has some competitively priced GPUs, 650Ti ain't one of them.
