Need help choosing GPU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all, i need some help with buying a new GPU for my rig. I'm currently using a 560ti soo i can't run most games maxed out with stable framerates. I'm in the market for a new GPU and i have a few on my mind.

1) R9 290x - Choosing this cause MANTLE seems REALLY interesting and it's said to be on par with the titan.

2) Asus DCU II 780 - I've only heard good things about this card but it brings me to the question. will this be better than amd's new flagship 290x?

3) MSI Lightning 780 - This is my last option, the color scheme is wonky and the card is huge but i've seen benchmarks where it's on par even surpassing a titan.

This is my current rig:

I7 3960x @ 4.6GHZ
32gb G skill Trident X
GTX 560ti
Asus Rampage IV extreme
Corsair AX1200

I'm using a single Asus VG248QE monitor and i'll be eventually getting 2 more. Thanks for all the advice people, if you don't see a card here you think i should take a look at, let me know.

P.S.

I mainly use this for gaming, soo keep that in mind.

don't you mean VG248QE? I would wait for actual pricetags and some benches untill you decide.
