I don't want to argue, but just increasing the screen resolution doesn't increase the VRAM used. 2GB is plenty for 4k gaming actually.

VRAM =/= resolution

Fxa 990 ud3 has problems with vrm cooling.so avoid under all costs
post #43 of 110
It does? Just googled an image for it and it looks like it has sufficient heatsinks. I mean, overclocking an 8core does mean they get hot and you should put a fan on it, but is it really that bad?

Omg lol. Then which motherboard do you recommand me?
post #45 of 110
Budget?do you plan on ocing and using cfx or sli?btw do you plan to buy a r9 280x or a 770gtx?both will be fine for 1920x1080 unless you make protrait mode or eyefinity/surround/4k (2gb arent enough for some games)/2560x1440 with 8xMSAA

The max I spend is 130$. I plan to OC both my CPU and GPU. I want to have the option of making a Crossfire setup. If possible, I'd like my motherboard to be black or red.

Finaly, I think I'll buy a r9 280x because I plan to make a dual screen in the futur.

No, but you can get close. I have an MSI GTX 770 Lightning that I got right after launch and I run it at 1372 MHz with +100mv on the core. If I use more than +119mv with AB (haaax!) it gets to 95c and throttles. You will need to modify the bios (I can do that for you) to take real advantage of it and get past all the limits/throttling. I'm trying to run a 96Hz 1440p monitor and games like Crysis run in the 40's (unplayable for me) even after lowering settings/optimizing a lot so 1080p is the limit if you want to run at or near 60fps more often than not. When it comes to drivers and overall smoothness I'm going to have to go with Nvidia. After my experience with Crossfire and single GPU AMD cards this generation I think AMD has fallen behind with their driver stability and framepacing vs nvidia. Nvidia is definitely worth the extra few buck to me even without considering PhysX or Shadowplay. (For now)

Even with just 2GB of vram I'm not running out in games even on my 1440p monitor running 2x msaa in Far Cry 3 although I am getting close 1800-1900mb. It wouldn't be a problem if you're only running one monitor but if you run 2 you'll be needing more power GPU before you'll run out of memory anyway.

You should consider getting a Gsync monitor. That will make any lack of GPU performance in some games much less noticeable and in my opinion is the best way to futureproof yourself right now. I am not up to date with the latest and greatest in this category though so someone else will have to chime in about that. thumb.gif
