Nvidia cards seem overpriced in NZ imo

eg:
The Geforce 660 Ti should be comparable price to the Radeon 7870 as they are similar in performance but it;s ~$80 more.

The Geforce 670 should be comparable price to the Radeon 7950 as they are similar in performance but it's ~$100 more.

I have a 6950 oc. And can run almost max settings at 1440p

Ever since the never settle drivers came out and have been getting better.

I have a 6970 in the cupboard but I can't get it to work. Not sure if it's psu or not.

Im looking at an upgrade soon but waiting for the next gen.

Sli 660ti's benchmark Very well. But as said single high spec card is usually better then sli.

Absolutely agree with you. Nvidia cards are just not priced competitively in NZ, which is why I tend to lean more towards AMD, you get more for your money. It's a shame really, I would love to get a 660ti, but for the amount of gaming I do, spending that much for a card would be a waste.

borgia: Ive got a 680 (eVGA from pbtech).  It runs everything maxed on my 27inch 2560*1600 screen, which is a lot of pixels to push. 


Curious. I didn't know you could get 2560x1600 @ 27", or was that just a simple typo?


yes, it can, a good example is Apple's 27" mon.
it required duel DVI link cables.


The Apple 27" display is 2560x1440 - not 2560x1600.

2560x1600 displays generally come in a 30" form factor. The 27" monitors tend to be significantly cheaper than their 30" brethren, so if a 27" 2560x1600 can be sourced I'd be curious.

Looks like it was just a simple typo.


thank you to correct me.
