The game's unique combat system gives you significant freedom over your movement, the actions you take, and your counter-attacks-individual body parts can also be targeted.

We can look at an individual game, like Crysis 2, and see that the Nvidia card is a good 20 percent faster.

Reviews Word on the street

Radeon R7 260X  vs HD 7770 

In our testing we see excellent noise results from the HIS HD 7770 iCooler, making it whisper quiet in idle and barely audible under load - a great improvement over the reference design.
