7770 CFX vs Radeon R7 250 2GB vs Radeon R7 260X 2GB vs 7790?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a GPU budget of $150, but I am willing to stretch to $175.
So basically, I want the best performance for BF3 and BF4. This also includes other modern games. I will use it for light rendering, heavy gaming, and running multiple monitors (unless the card doesn't support it).
I want to play at preferably high settings, but I won't go lower than medium 1080P. I am hoping to get and average of 60 FPS (remember, not on ultra settings) or higher. If that's a stretch, then a 5 FPS minimum.
If you can recommend a different card for my price and wishes, please tell me. I am not an AMD or NVIDIA fanboy, so whatever you can find for my budget build. I am only 14, so stretching prices really isn't an option for me since I am already going to sell my laptop and Xbox 360.
Thank you guys SO much, this community has been very great to me thus far, and I really enjoy that happy feeling when someone responds to my questions..wink.gif

All the best...

hmm 1080p on high above 60fps on bf4 maybe with multiple monitors with a $150-175 GPU? a bit hard.... this card is the best for that price range. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161404

EDIT: If you overclock it you can get close performance to the HD 7950-7970.

hard to believe but that is what the benchmarks say!

Oh, sorry I wasn't clear. I won't be using more than one monitor for gaming, only for browsing the web and stuff.
In a year or two I will upgrade my card to a better one that can max out Battlefield with more than one monitor.
Thanks though.
That 7870 is just a little expensive even with the rebate...
How about this..

And that is quite hard to believe, but numbers don't lie.

I think its fine mate. Powercolor is a great brand as i have been using for more than 5 years some cards of them. I am not sure about the cooling but it will do the job.

However, for 20 more bucks, the HIS overclocks better and has better cooling.

Make sure that card fits in your case, I remember someone trying to do a build a couple weeks ago and they went off the base 7870 size, and it did not fit due to the cooler overhang off the back of the card!

^This^.

The HIS needs 2 and a half PCI spacings and its also quite big, measuring at 11.69 inches and needs a 500w PSU.
