So how did I do? $1000 budget gaming build. - Page 9

post #81 of 142

Newer games in 4-5 years could be a lot more demanding than today's games. Plus, you'll want to be taking advantage of whatever API comes out next after DirectX 12 and AMD's Mantle.

With larger resolutions bigger VRM is advised.

Yeah, I dont plan on using multiple displays or anything like that.

Comparing which price?
750ti's are still close to 150$

I guess it also depends on the potential upgrades I can make along the way as well. I have a little breathing room with the PSU, and the next gen of intel processors should be compatible with my motherboard? I think?

Almost makes me want to say get a 270x 4gb, but they don't always like to be in stock.
That and you do loose a little performance....

I don't think they will be.
After the power efficiency of the 8XX series cards, the CPU's should be beasts.
Never know though.. the 2500k and 3570k share the same socket...

Thats kind of why I have the theory this gen and the next might be compatible.

Hard to find them in stock for me.
265 on Newegg is 170$
270 is 180$ on newegg.

It's to bad there isn't an easy way to do a price to performance of every video card both reference and non, comparing Clock speeds vs $ without the variable of over-clocks.

e) @ op. Make a post when you have the $ for the video card, then within a week of that post purchase a card.
Deals, mismarks and other crap happens so often it just easier if you do it when you can buy the card honestly.

The 760 is fine, i have one in my rig right now and am very happy with it. 4-5 years from now, with two 760s and 1080p resolution i think you will be able to do medium to high settings and get respectable fps depending on the game. What about the R9 280 OP? It's somewhere in the middle between a 760 and 770/280x price wise...not to sure on the performance against a 760 to be honest maybe someone else can weigh in, but there's something to be said about more vram (3GB vs 2GB) along with a wider bus (384bit vs 256bit) in a CF/SLI setup. It will probably give you more longevity, especially if you decide to upgrade to a higher resolution (you never know). Just something to consider.

You've got the MSI, XFX and PowerColor all going for $300 right now on newegg and Sapphire's on sale at $270:

MSI R9 280 GAMING

XFX Black Edition Double D R9 280

PowerColor TurboDuo AXR9 280

SAPPHIRE DUAL-X Radeon R9 280

Asus and Gigabyte are $350+ so not really worth it as you can get a 280x of the afromentioned brands or a 770 for the same money.
