160 Euro for GTX 660 ? that's the about same price new MSI GTX 660 Gaming in my country (and that's including import taxes), I thought in euro, price is a bit lower ?

for about more or less amount of money you could also go AMD route for the 7870/R9-270 or slightly cheaper 7850.

No, the euro is worthless.

I'll stick to NVIDIA, to much risk with AMD.

There's really no risk with AMD. The R9-270 or R9-270X is a very good graphics card for the money. They all come with warranties so I'm not sure what risk you're implying, but the current drivers from AMD are fine. I'm not sure if they're still doing the Never Settle bundles but you might even get a free game with your card. If you're dead set on Nvidia that's ok but they are more expensive and really there is no reason at all to not buy an AMD graphics card.

Edit: Regarding the risk and stories you hear, take them with a grain of salt because you can hear the same stuff about Nvidia or Intel that you hear about AMD depending on who you're asking. Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, they all make Nvidia and AMD graphics cards and I can assure they don't make the AMD ones worse quality than they make the Nvidia cards they produce. I work with these things on a daily basis and I've never had an issue from either vendor beyond the usual problems with a faulty part that has to be RMA'd.

Honestly I've only heard/read bad stories about them. Like for example heat problems.
Plus I've had bad experiences myself.

But if you can assure me that AMD GPU's are just as reliable, then I'm willing to take the gamble.

EDIT:

The cheapest R9-270 I could find was E170,-

The reference versions of the R9-290/290x/ had problems with heat, that's definitely true. The cards in your price range are just rebrands of the last generation and there is no problem with heat. Get one from a good brand and you should be fine. There is always a risk of a faulty part, no matter who makes it. I have had to return an Nvidia card because it arrived faulty out of the box, I've had faulty ram and even a CPU that had to go back. I build a lot of computers so I guess I will get more faulty parts than someone who only builds one for themselves. What I normally do is look at the card that offers the best warranty and performance at a given price. If it happens to be Nvidia at the time, that's what I buy. If it's from AMD, then that's what I get. Choose a card from one of the big names and it'll have a good warranty. I believe MSI is 3 years on some of their cards?

Does it work well with SR3 and other similar games?
post #38 of 62
I would almost bet the on board graphics on that CPU would be better than that card.

that's a bargain, but the 750/750Ti don't have SLI support though, in case he want to add a second card later.

on second tought I can find the same card for 124 Euro (converted) in my country.

That shop has an R9-270 for 156 euro or around there.

Here you can see the difference between an R9-270X and a GTX 750TI. Granted, the R9-270 is a bit slower than an X model but the only real difference is clock speed, and honestly the difference is not huge. A plain R9-270 will still be way better than a 750Ti. If you really don't want to use an AMD card that's ok, everyone has personal preference but then at least look at a GTX660 or 760.
