Hi guys,

I'm looking for a new graphic card for the gaming rig I'm planning to buy. So I was wondering what are the difference between Nvidia and AMD and which side would suit my needs better. I'd like a graphic card that is silent and powerful. I'd like to have the possibility of making a dual GPU setup. I have 300-400 dollars to spend.

Also,does the CPU affect the graphic card performance? If I get the FX 8320, do i have to get an AMD graphic card?

Thanks for answering and have a great day. wink.gif

Need a budget.

Need a purpose. Assuming gaming. Need a resolution.

Nope. swing both ways and it wont matter. thumb.gif

Both companys make great cards. Post your system specs. that will help. and to your last question it is no. An AMD processor doesn't mean you need an AMD card.

Yeah, I forgot to add some informations sorry. I edited my post. I'll be using this for gaming only. I'm not sure where I'll be buying yet.

Its hard for anyone to help you unless they know what platform you plan on using. For GPU help you need to at least put your motherboard, monitor, and intended use of your computer. Processor also. Nobody wants too steer you the wrong way. I could tell you to by an Nvidea Titan, but if you are running on an Intel Atom type of system it would be bad advice. So please give a little info about want you want and what you have to work with.biggrin.gif

When you link your build, use the permanent link in the top left. Your link links to a blank build. thumb.gif

At that price range, i would recommend an R9 290, or an R9 290x.

The first link didn't really show anything. As far as A GPU goes if your looking to game at 1080p the skys the limit. A lot depends on your budget and the games you wanna play. Also the quality of the graphics you want out of it. Nobody can really tell you to go AMD or Nvidea without knowing exactly what you need. My first 5 cards were Nvidea. My last 2 AMD.
