GPU Upgrade for the FX8350 - Page 4

post #31 of 45
I have two XFX R9 270X that I got at BestBuy for $249 each, they both came with 4 free games - I couldn't find a better deal anywhere... loving them thus far.

Yeah i totally forgot all games that comes with the r9 270x but I dont know if all come bf4

WellI think I will have to wait for someone with an extra copy of Bf4 since the game itself costs 35and I need the money for my upgrade,sigh
post #34 of 45
Bf4 is a good game but if you didn't play the previous installments I can see it being very overwhelming in terms of playing against players who already have the game downpat from playing battlefield for 10 years... But it's nice looking and plays well...snipers can be unreal on there sometimes due to their experience with battlefield and pilots alike but it's fun even if you fail at it like me smile.gif a buddy of mine has hit 1800 yard shots.... Insane even with 40x scope it's amazing to me... I am a little jealous though I only got ac: black flag with my nvidia card... Amd has the best bundles....I just couldn't see paying so much for a card that was 75 percent of that with three game bundles before the coin craze hit

Oh yea, AMD has really nice bundles. I have a friend that offer me a new 7950 for $300.00 but I already had the 270X. biggrin.gif

Yea that would had been good. Then again I start to think do I need to spend $300 on a video card now? I mean I may play some demanding games but not to the point I need a $300 video card. XD Then again. Maybe I can still take him up on it.

In fact the hd 7950 is much better for mining and the opencl performance is also better than the 270x

Yea the card my friend has is: XFX AMD Radeon HD 7950 Core Edition 3GB GDDR5 DVI/HDMI/2Mini DisplayPorts PCI-Express Graphics Cards FX795ATNFC;FX-795A-TNFC. I am so far liking the Graphic features of the R9 270X. not sure how they would compare graphic wise between the two. I know the new one have the Mantle technology.

both are compatible with mantle

and True Audio is only for GNC 1.1 and 2.0 or newer not 1.0 like the R9 270X or the HD 7950
