which card

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a new gpu and was wondering if I should get one of the new r7 or r9 cards like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202051 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127761 or pic up a 7850 or 7870 like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131484 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202025 I'm not sure if it's worth getting the new cards just yet. I would like to spend around 150-200 but would aim more to the 150 mark. Is there any other cards that you all recommend. I want something that'll last a while.

Thanks

OP the R7 260X is a definite no. its a 128 bit card with poor bandwidth and is no match for even HD 7850 and GTX 650 Ti boost

go for HD 7870 or R9 270X or HD 7950 . for HD 7870 the MSI card is well priced

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127722

for R9 270X the Gigabyte WF3 is a good option

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125476

but the best value is to watch out for good deals on a HD 7950 , around USD 200 - 220. unfortunately the prices on HD 7950 have gone up in the past couple of weeks and its tough to find such deals. but if you can find such a deal grab it.
