Which Graphics Card Should I Get

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm going to get a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard and an AMD FX-8350 processor but I don't know which type of graphics card to get and I want to stay under $200.

these new R9 cards are great fwiw.

Just wonder if they will fix the drivers...

Edit: on second thought, if you can spare the little bit of extra cash, just get something like this:

it has more ALU's and a lot more memory bandwidth to play with.

I like the R9 270, but lately all I have heard is horrors about framerate drops and stuttering in games. im sure it will be ironed out when new drivers are released though.

and I feel AMD video card on an AMD chipset is a plus.
