If you decide to get a 260x, at least avoid the asus model.
just look at all these guys having the same problem with the 260x:

here i am using a 260x currently and have never had issues, having a randomly bad product and not sending to RMA to fix it is no reason to act like all of em are bad.


i too can google for crashes and freezing with a videocard to prove my point, see gtx750 have common issue of freezing.

The links I posted are of people with a 260x that has a consistent problem which is windows crashing when idle or not playing a game.

The links you posted about the 750ti have different problems such as blackscreen when gaming.

Do you have a 2GB factory overclocked version of 260x?

R7 250X which makes great use of its superior texture handling, and comfortable across the board can try with that.
