Which of the Fiji cards should I get if I decide to buy a holdover until the next generation? I'm leaning towards an R9 Fury from XFX, and would use it as a backup card once the next generation comes out. Note that I will not be buying a 21:9 monitor for a little while; for now I will be using my 2560x1440 monitor for games at least until the next generation of AMD GPUs comes out, so could I get away with an even smaller GPU upgrade until then and be able to max out pretty much every game?
As for this, unless your set on AMD I would suggest a 980/980ti, on the basis that my car never hits over 35 degrees yet I can barely squeeze a 10% increase from overclocking. Not only that, but my coil whine is like a violin, it's very audible from within my case.
If you are set on AMD, then Nano, On a waterblock you can get almost Fury X results and also very respectable results with an altered fan profile on air. But same issues as above would most likely apply
