I'm hoping maybe you guys can share some more wisdom with me. Sorry i ask so many questions but I'm new to building computers and I'm finding all the available components to be a little overwhelming. I'm trying to figure out what GPU to get. I can only afford to spend about $350 max before taxes. I want to have a graphics card that will keep pace with upcoming games for at least the next 2 years. Another thing I have found very confusing is all the different "brand names" there are to choose from. I've been reccomended MSI by a good friend and was thinking about getting the MSI GeForce GTX 760 Twin Frozr 3 4GB GDDR5. Are there any superior cards out there for the same price range?

Heres a little info about my build

Seasonic 760 Platinum PSU
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
AMD FX8350 (planned CPU)
G.Skill Sniper Series 2x4gb 1866mhz

If I were you I would try to get a gtx 770 if possible, the cards from nvidia that end in x60 (like 560, 660, 760) are more budget minded cards that typicalyl run well for about 1-1.5 years and get phased out fast. The 770 will last you a bit longer IMO.

I personally had 2x msi cards and they were nice but didn't scream quality, i had issues with the fans but they do use the best fans for those twin frozr cards.. its just the fact that after 2 years of running all the time they get louder and louder slowly. I would go EVGA or MSI depending on what you can afford, I've rma'd msi cards and it took about 5 weeks frown.gif but my rma with EVGA took 2 weeks.. thats a important factor for me is the quality of the customer service.

yeah man, if you are building a machine and you already know you don't want to upgrade a graphics card for atleast 2 years try to spend a little more upfront so you have more towards the back end of its life. 1 GTX 770 plays BF4 at a mix of high/ultra at above 60 fps quite well

One little bit of information that you may or may not know is that the GTX 770 is just a GTX 680 with a new frock, but that doesn't make it a bad card at all. It just uses the old architecture rather than the new on the 780. I would definitely recommend EVGA as well. Had nothing but pleasant experiences with them and friends have had good RMA dealings with them as well. Real fast turn around. Also if you ever even thought about doing a custom water cooled loop then always go for the reference card (EVGA) so that you can find water blocks easier for them.

What resolution are you planning to game at? If it's 1080p then yea I would go with a gtx 770 and I would recommend evga because they have really good customer service and warranty.

Its GPU purchase time! I have around £500 extra from my student loan to buy pc parts, I want to get the H110 for my CPU and a samsung 840 evo (250GB) to replace my current SSD so that can then go in my laptop as a boot drive... Together they will cost around £200 leaving £300 ish for the graphics card now after a bit of research I am wondering which graphics card to get? Atm only running 1080p but I will at some point upgrade... btw my mobo only supports crossfire and not sli so if I'm going to cheap out and get a lower capability GPU now it would have to be perferable to be AMD so it can be crossfired at a later date and that is why I am asking for help as I have no idea what to do!

EDIT: If say I buy a 280x for example would it be better to buy a reference card and then buy a NZXT Kraken G10 and a 120mm clc at a later date...? AH decisions!!

The problem is I cant find the damn thing in stock/ from a reputable retailer... Not sure which to get although I might get one of the cheaper ones which I can add a custom cooler on later and over clock it!

Thanks for the help btw smile.gif

EDIT: Found some at scan! Yay!

EDIT:EDIT: Ended up buying a 3GB MSI Radeon Radeon R9 280X as well as the H110 CPU cooler from Scan.co.uk should arrive Wednesday!
