Choice of a decent graphic card?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, im kinda tired of spending hundreds of euro's each year to play games maxed out since i used to be a graphic whore, but now im dead tired of that, so im jeading back to be a console gamer, so i sold my 780's and now i want a decent cheap card that still can run any games today and play them with max antialiasing.

So here is my question, should i get amd's 7970 or R9 280X? Or gtx 760? (i kinda want 760 since it has higher pixel rate which is good for antialiasing and such, but im still unsure.

nVidia http://www.komplett.no/search?bn=10412&category=10412_Skjermkort&cnet=Grafikkprosessorfabrikant_A03616++%C2%A7NVIDIA&pricegross.omax=120000.0&pricegross.omin=225.0&q=*%3A*&pricegross.min=2000&pricegross.max=2500

I have already set the price range im gonna use iin those links.

Why didn't you just keep what you had, be satisfied with those graphics for a few years and put the money you would spend in that period to your console gaming.

Get a used 7950 if you can find one, but IMHO you should keep your 780.

You know, you don't have to be a graphics hoe to game on a PC. I was perfectly happy with 2 6850s at 2560x1440, and I plan on sticking with my 7950 until 14nm or a firesale on $200 20nm next gen cards. Turn down the AA and a few settings, and you literally can't tell the difference between high and "maxed".

Why would i choose a card which is worse in performance than 760 or 280X?

You've should've stick with at least 1 GTX 780...unless you sold them all for the need of money.

Other than that, just get a good mid range card and don't look back until a year or two later...There are 280X which are rebranded 7970ghz edition going for around $300 a pop; best bang for the buck right now if you want GTX 780 performance for way less money would be the R9 290 going for $400 a pop, I would wait for nonreference designs since the reference design is garbage.
