best card i can buy for $600 or under? Or how about for the $400 range? - Page 3

post #21 of 49
I'm not so sure about Battlefield 4 because I've only played a little bit of it, but..

Even a 7870 should be able to max out any game at 1080p on Ultra with low AA (FXAA).

From what I understand, a 770 is just a rebranded 680, if you look at the GPU-Z specs they're the same. I think the 770 comes with higher default clocks.

A 770 is better than a 7870 or 270X by a decent amount. It should have no problems running BF4 or other high end games like Crysis 3 at 1080p.

If the AMD cards were actually going for MSRP, a 280X (7970) for $300 would be your best option.

If you really want to future proof and have a card that lasts years you should get something better than a 770 or 280X, a 780 or 290 would do the trick.

If you bought a replacement already just wait a couple months for maxwell I guess, you won't regret.

Too late. I pulled the trigger on a R9 290 lol, the prices up here in canada are kinda... funky, and the us-Canadian dollar difference is stupid. I could save over $100 buying in the states. but then the currency difference is like 40-50 bucks, then shipping, Then taxes at the border.... would of cost me much more :\, I was able to get a new R9 brand new shipped to me for about $550 Canadian. and thats the good asus Direct CU II card which I wanted

I'll end up selling my 7870 if it gets fixed to a friend. I was actually thinking to get the 7870 fixed and buy another 7870 and crossfire them. But my buddy wants the 7870 if its fixed so oh well, I can sell it for like 200 bucks so thatll help make my new card cheaper... Although now I'm going to buy a waterblock for it! frown.gif monayyyy mad.gif

Let us know how you like the R9 290 DCII!

1x R9 290 = 2x 7870

A friend of mine on here has 2 7870s and my 290 benches about the same as his setup in 3dmark11 and Valley.

Yeah I figured 2 7870 = 1 290, But oh well I guess ha ha, Hopefully the card will be nice. I plan to buy a waterblock for it since its kinda the right thing to do.... I've gotten by all this time using a universal gpu block +memory sinks but this 290 is a whole nother beast.... I cant find any waterblocks for the CUII just yet. It appears EK has made one but hasnt released it to market yet??

So I got the card. so far I like what I'm seeing. Its wider than my 7870 and much longer,, One thing I never looked into... is that its a Dvi-D card so no more VGA-DVI for my old spare monitor,

But I love the backplate. Great card. love the dual bios thing, I'll be flashing a diff bios sometime to it when I get a waterblock on it. I love that it has red/green led's to tell you if your videocard is getting power from your psu.... so all in all.. very nice card and good job asus.... I just hope I never have issues with this card lol thumb.gif

all on 1080p, But hard thing to say really is I dont have any real demanding games other than bf4, but so far so good anyways lol thumb.gif

Still, it's a pretty powerful difference for a single card, especially compared to a 7870.
