Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

which graphic card should i use for gaming such crysis 2 running in a very high setting?

Diogo says:

Get the HD 6870 Dual Fan
and then make a little overclock !

Hd 6870 is better than gtx 560 ti, because its cheaper than gtx 560 ti... Amd also make some features that in compatible to the nvidia graphic cards

SmileMan says:

the gtx560ti and the 448 version are better in games, better avg fps. HD6870 is better in performance, if AMD updated their drivers --> hd6870 would own this 2. But nvidea got superior drivers, so they can make more results with less performance. So if amd had drivers updated like that...

Then would they be the master with a big lead!
