Graphics card recommendation for BF4 and eventually for a SFF case

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I currently have an i5-3570k CPU, 6 GB of ram and a Radeon HD 7770. I would like to get better performance in BF4 and I believe my GPU is currently a big bottleneck.

I'd like some suggestions for a new card, but I'd really to spend around $150 (buying used it okay) and I would like to be able to eventually put it in a SFF case like the Silverstone Raven RVZ01, so size and overheating are concerns for me.

The GTX Ti 750 seems to suit my needs, but is it going to make a big enough difference over the 7770?

Thanks for the help.

MSI R9 270 Gaming has an excellent cooler and very good reviews . fastest card with a single 6 pin PCI-E connector..

roughly 25.6 cm long. so quite compact and should fit in your case easily.

for USD 180 MSI R9 270 Gaming is a very good deal.

Is this one really that good of a deal? On Newegg I see other models for only $5-10 more.

You may be able to get am ITX sized GTX 760 used for $200, a little over budged but worth it.

Well according to this comparison it appears that the GTX 760 only provides a small amount of difference compared to the R9 270, but costs around $80 more. Is it really worth it? I could always get a used R9 270 for less than $180 I would imagine.

Nice, and I see some sold listings as low as $140 on eBay so I"m going to hit up one on there. Thanks

Don't worry about overheating, pretty much any graphics card will work in that case. Someone has a sapphie 290 toxic in there and it runs just fine. The current 450w power supply is kinnda pushing it for that card though, but with the new 600w sfx psu coming out by the end of the year you should be able to power pretty much anything but some duel cards.
