Upgrade from a ATI HD5850 - And a 120hz display

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there.

My brother is asking for a new GPU and a 120hz dispay for christmas. He is gonna use it for Battlefield 4 mainly, since thats the most demanding game he plays.

I have no idea what to look for. The last GPU I bought were a 670 GTX, and since then I havent been looking at GPUs. And 120hz displays I dont know anything about at all.

Can you help me out? Hes asking for something above 22 inch regarding the display.

Sorry about asking for a display here too, but I didnt think it was necessary to open 2 thread for those questions.

Thanks in advance.

Budget?

Because of mantle, an AMD card would be ideal for BF4, but there's a huge price spike atm from all the crypto currency miners. A used GTX 670 would be a great buy, a used 7950 or better would be good but you won't find any for a decent price.

A Qnix QX2710 is easily the best value for ~$300

I dont know about budget yet tbh. I'm trying to see the market and take it from there.
Sadly, we cant get a Qnix home in time. We live in Denmark, so it wouldnt be here before christmas. I'm not happy about the idea about buying a used GPU for a gift, but thanks for the tips.

A Sapphire RADEON R9 290 costs 496$ here and theres plenty in storage. A Club 3D Radeon R9 280X (3 GB) costs 386$, and also plenty in storage.

$500 for a 290 in Denmark isn't that bad, is the 780 much cheaper?

The Eizo FG2421 is probably the best, but it's expensive. Anything with lightboost (which also works on AMD) would be alot better than normal 120hz.

I think I'm gonna go with a R9 280x instead. A 780 is gonna cost almost 630$
