750ti because of low tdp noise and overall good performance for its price. op said he is not hardcore gamer and mediums will totally be fine with him. 750ti allows some of the newest games run on medium-highs which is the scorepoint op will like, also if nvidia will finally introduce dx12 that will give 750ti even more room to operate.

I hate to be the one to burst your bubble but the 750Ti at $150+ is horrid price/performance compared to similar things in that bracket like the 650 Ti Boost, HD 7850, r265, HD 7870, r270, r270x, or even the r260x.

I don't find the $150 price tag to be terribly out of line, all things considered... The 750Ti tends to be a little faster than the 260X while using less power. The improved compute efficiency gives it the highest gaming performance per watt of any GPU available on the market. This gives it added value for specialized builds (SFF). From a pure performance/$ perspective, it's on the low end right now, but I'm sure Nvidia knows they can enjoy a bit of a pricing honeymoon on this new level of compute efficiency. It's not for everyone, but for the right customer, I wouldn't call it horrid.

Any experience with this PSU?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3KX16K2758

http://www.solidgearusa.com/en/product_4/4/




I can get a really good deal on one from a local supplier right now.

I don't know about that one. They don't seem to have much of a product catalog as far as PSUs. They claim a whopping 78% efficiency, so I can imagine why you can get one for cheap. I'd much rather go with a Rosewill Capstone, a gold efficiency psu built on by a well known reputable psu manufacturer (superflower).

Thinking of going a different route a bit on the video card and mobo.

http://www.microcenter.com/product/422559/FM2A88X_Extreme6_FM2-FM2_A88X_ATX_AMD_Motherboard

FM2A88X Extreme6+




And 2 HD 7770's in crossfire.

Radeon HD 7770 Core Edition
http://www.microcenter.com/product/430300/FX777ACGFV_Radeon_HD_7770_Core_Edition_1000MHz_2GB_DDR3_PCI-E_30_Video_Card




I've looked at a bunch of benchmarks, and the dual 7770's fall in between the 7950 and 7970 in performance.
post #28 of 35
There's no benefit to Xfire cards until the combined performance exceeds that which is possible with a flagship class GPU.

Not sure where you are getting your information either, the HD7770(R7 250X) in crossfire is equivalent to an HD7870 under perfect theoretical conditions. (in the real world there are downsides to multiple GPU solutions, not all game engines scale well, and frame pacing is always slightly worse so it requires MORE FPS on a dual card solution to provide the same effective smoothness as a single card solution).

The HD7870 has been replaced by the R9 270 and R9 270X, which can be purchased for about the same price as 2xHD7770, so it doesn't make any sense to buy 2xHD7770 and deal with all of the downsides of a multiple GPU solution when there's a single card that can deliver the exact same result without any of the downsides for the same price.

I finally pulled the trigger on a new board. Won't be able to make over to Microcenter to pick it up until Wednesday though. I went with the ASRock FM2A88X Fatal1ty Killer

I had some correspondence with ASRock's tech support before deciding on it. It has the same all solid caps and 4+2 powerphase with digital PWM as the FM2A88X Extreme4+ , but also has the added benefits of Purity Sound, the Atheros E2200, and upgraded power and PCIe connectors. I'll let you know how it goes when I start putting things back together.

It looks as if the benchmarks I was looking at were skewed- after checking out a few more I noticed that every other site had much lower results...


Back onto the video card decision- I have looked at both the R9 270 and the GTX 660 which are pretty much identical in price right now. It seems that the Nvidia card has very slightly higher performance out of the box, but I suspect that when overclocked the R9 270 will surpass it by a pretty decent margin.

The R9 also has the advantage of Mantle, which seems to be pretty handy, especially if more games start to embrace it.
