looking to upgrade my gpu need help - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Suggested 750 ti above for the low end of budget. Agree with you. Just trying to determine how much we need to future proof in lieu of further upgrades. If all stays as is, the 750 will suit fine wink.gif

A 750 Ti wouldn't be held back nearly as badly as a R9 290, or even a GTX 760/R9 280. CPU needs vary from game to game, but I don't imagine your 920 will be struggling with RE titles anyway.

All PCIE3.0 GPUs are backwards compatible, and single GPU cards aren't fully saturating PCIE2.0 buses yet. You won't see a difference.

Besides, all of the recommended cards in this thread are PCIE3.0. tongue.gif

since my asus m2r32-mvp motherboard can crossfire and since the only games i play on the pc are resident evil 5 and 6 would it be better for me to just buy a second 4890 from ebay and crossfire it with the one i have?

Yhen a r9 270 and a downclock/undervolt or a r7 265 are better choice

TBH I don't think I'd bother with crossfiring two ancient cards like that. CFX scaling wasn't great prior to the HD5K series and driver support will probably taper off soon if it hasn't already. Plus, you can get a new 750 Ti or R7 260X around the $100 mark, or less on sale. You won't save much, if anything by picking up another 4890.

A 750 Ti or R7 260X would be the most cost effective upgrades imo.
