GPU UPGRADE! - Page 3

How about a GTX 760?
MSI GTX 760 $259.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127745
GIGABYTE GTX 760 $259.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125465

Edit: If you don't like Nvidia, then I would recommend the PowerColor HD 7870 MYST Edition $249.99, this card is basically a 7950 with a lower price tag.

PowerColor HD 7870 MYST Edition Comparison

If there is any AMD GPU to compare performance to, the PowerColor HD 7870 MYST Edition is the better performing option. You cannot find a faster AMD GPU at $249. The PowerColor HD 7870 MYST Edition performs faster than the HD 7870 GHz Edition, and comes closer to HD 7950 performance, yet it is a lot less expensive than the HD 7950.

Don't you just hate when you get too many options after you think you've already made up your mind? hahah

I'd stick with the 7950. As far as model goes, I'd go for the following:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202003

It's a 7950 Sapphire Vapor-X. Currently with a rebate that brings it down to $285, and includes 4 games upon purchase smile.gif. The Vapor-X is known for it's efficient cooling, and it's boost allows it to go up to 950 MHz core clock.

The 7870's are afaik not very efficient, so the sapphire option is a) faster b)cooler and c)has free games. For $40 more I would definitely take this over the 7870xt.

I'd pay a few bucks more for a HD7970.

^this. pay attention on the game settings of the HardOCP linked. 2smaa or fxaa to acommodate the 2GB VRAM. you want at least to play the game using 2msaa for 1080 for the price you are investing.
