Default Re: Some Questions About Hardware

The 580 was the last gen high end card, so I would hope it still performs good. The 600 series really takes it up a huge notch though, and the 660ti can best a 580. The 660 and 650 are supposed to be lower end models, so naturally one would expect them to perform less. Despite the 660ti and 670 being the midrange models they are still heavy performers due to the mass increase in performance the Kepler chip brought.

So, which card would be very close to 580's performance but be around 200€(~270$)?
Also, my keyboard keeps typing " <a href=http://download.cnet.com/Free-Youtube-Downloader-Pro/3000-2071_4-75329731.html >youtube downloader</a>" automatically when i want to reply to threads on forums or yahoo! answers..

sounds like you have some virus/malware to clean up.

Closest card is the 660 or 7870 if you want AMD.

If the problem persists then you didn't clean it.

Depends on which one you want honestly. I would stick to Sapphire, MSI, and XFX brand wise.

Some coolers are better than others yea. Like DirectCU2 on Asus, Twin Frozr on MSI ect. They don't really matter that much unless you plan to OC your GPU.
