Deal or no deal?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Pretty much the point of this thread is to get some advice on whether I should wait a couple months or buy now, given the current selection of GPU's on the market. If you weren't aware, I have a Build Log going and I am buying parts to finish it. I just ordered everything else needed to complete it, minus a GPU. The CPU i have (i7-4770K) has built in graphics and along with a HD7850 I won at a LAN not to long back. So I don't really NEED a GPU right now but obviously I am going to upgrade. So my question is should I go out and buy something now or wait for AMD to release their HD9000 cards? I'm looking to drop somewhere around $400-$600 on a GPU.

I say if youre fine with the card right now to hold off untill the next gen of AMD cards come out and compare them to what nVidia has if not i say you can buy a 780 and in the future when they go down in price you could buy another to SLI.

By the way what resolution are you going to be running?
What games will you be playing?

I have a 24" Syncmaster and a 42" LED TV that I will be using as well. I play a lot of LoL, WoW, BF3, and Steam Games.

Then a 780 would be overkill for that unless you plan on upgrading to a higher res monitor or to a multi monitor setup. A 770 or 7970 should be able to max out most games at 1080p with little to no problems.

your HD 7850 should be fine till Oct. wait for the HD 9950 / HD 9970 and then decide on the next card.
