Low - 265/750ti and lower

There's no real set classes of GPU but it's silly to call a card that can max out 99% of games mid tier.

I agree with this list 100%, calling the GTX 980 a mid range card is just stupid, being one of the fastest single GPU's there are.

If you feel you must chase that ever elusive fairy dragon of maxing everything in every game and having it also run at max framerates/resolutions then good luck on that neverending quest brother!

Welcome to PC gaming. $$$$$$$ Unoptimized crap and short card life spans since the newest one is always around the corner.

Indeed, and the price it also too high:

I hate they are now change the overall prices scheme

Era GTX 500 series or before:
low-mid gpu: < $100-200
mid-high gpu: $250-350
high gpu: $500-600
highest(dualgpu): $700-1000


present now:
low gpu: < $ 200-299

high gpu: $750-1000
highest(dualgpu): +++ $1000

welcome to dark age of Pc gamerr era.

Some games, the poor console ports can be poorly optimized, but generalizing that idea is just wrong.

As for short life spans, there's nothing forcing people to buy a new card everytime something new comes out, the computer I built before my current one went three years without any upgrades.

How do you fellow owners feel about your 980, a 290x even keeps up.

See this is how us 780ti users felt when nvidia started merging or using game works. Titan x is released so let's make the 980 lower fps


Plus the ti had way higher bit rate which is probably why it could keep p up with 4gb vram

I am flying home from work in the morning. Part of my plan on days off, ditch my three 980s for a pair of Titan X cards.
