Best Bang For The Buck GPU High End

1. AMD HD 7970 3GB

This is a very powerful product from AMD. For running games at absolutely maxed out with full HD resolution this card can be the best choice. It won't cost much but its performance is awesome.

This card is built on a 28nm process. It's codename is Tahiti. This is a GCN card. By default it has a core clock of 925MHz, it has 2048 Stream unit. It has high speed GDDR5 memory interface, 384bit 240GB/s 3GB memory. It is fully DirectX11 Shader model 5.0 & OpenGL 4.2 supported.

If you have a full HD display & a system based on an AMD FX 8 core processor or an core i5 or i7 processor & you want to play latest released games at very high graphics this card can be the best choice for you.

This card consumes around 264W. Two 6 pin power connector is needed. For the powering this up I will recommend atleast a 550W decent power supply. Like a cooler master GX 550.

2. Nvidia GTX 770

Actually 770 is a bit more advanced 680. It is built on the same GK104 Kepler 28nm process. It features 1536CUDA unit same as the GTX 680. Though it features higher clocks. It has 1046MHz base clock & 1085MHz boost clock.

It has 2GB/4GB GDDR5 256 bit memory with an effective 7 Gbps speed & 224.3GB/s bandwidth.

This card is good enough for playing all the games at absolutely high or very high settings.

Though when it comes to the flagship games like Crysis 3 you may need to lower down a few options to get very high frame per second.

This card has a TDP of 230W. So you will be needing a minimum of 500W/550W continuous power supply unit.
