The best gpu for 1920x1080

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I could probably do this myself, probably, but I'd bang my head in confusion. This is what i have of my build(currently ordered)so far. I do however prefer to have a 4gb graphics card because I want to play a heavily modded skyrim. I own GW2, BF3(not installed yet), and some non-graphic intensive steam games(my laptop can barely play them lol).

You probably wouldnt need 4GB even super heavy modding it at 1080P, but if you insist. EVGA GTX 670 FTW+ 4GB.

Either a GT520M or GTX690 - They're about the same.

What's your budget mate?

I'd go with the 7970 GHz before I got a 670.

The 670 has an extra GB (that you wont use @ 1080p) but the 7970 will give you higher performance overall for the same price.

You're gonna be happy with either - they're great cards.

I would say that 4GB of VRAM is not necessary for 1920x1080. You'd be fine with something along the lines of an HD 7950 / 7970.

You don't need 4GB for anything at 1080p, and Skyrim is a poorly optimized Dx9 game that can't even come close to saturating a mid range computer let alone what you are looking to build.

TL;DR
Quote:
In the rest of our games we could hardly see any difference between GeForce GTX 670s with 2 and 4 GB of memory in 3240x1920 and no difference at all in 2560x1440. So, purchasing a 4GB card wouldn't be worth the investment unless you've got a triple-monitor configuration.

get a HD 7970 Ghz card for less than USD 450. fastest card without a doubt. the XFX HD 7970 Ghz, HIS 7970 IceQ X² GHz Edition , Sapphire HD 7970 Ghz vapor-x are all good options.

You're better off saving your money and getting a non Ghz edition, then overclocking it yourself for free.

Hmm, somewhere on this forum people where claim that a heavily modded skyrim eats up vram. If thats not the case i'll happily go to 2gb(cheaper) lol. On another note, is the phsyx and tessalation in nvidia gpus warrant noticable improvement in physics? and are they overclockable. Also what known advantages do AMD gpus have over nvidia?

EDIT: Looking at these models: 670/680 and 7950/7970
