Making a list for a new gaming rig, quick question.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Building a rig for gaming that's going to last me for a good while, so I need a card that can hold out for the long haul. I want to run all of these upcoming games at high/ultra with no problems with DX12 support.

All I've really been recommended is the 980 Ti, but I'm more of an AMD fan. What card out now matches, or is better than, the 980 Ti (option to add another in the future would be great as well)?

On the AMD side you have the Fury X that is a direct competitor to the 980ti. Overall through, the 980ti may take a lead due to its overclocking potential, but that's because we do not have any unlocked overclocking software for the Fury X. You could do a platform upgrade later and ride out with what you currently have which is still decent in 2015 to game by upgrading to a R9 290 / 390 used and upgrade to the next version of cards from either Nvidia or AMD which are hopefully on a newer node and faster memory. Should provide decent bump even against the 290 at similar resolutions. What resolution do you game on and what is the budget for the upgrade ?

the Fury X is the 980Ti equivalent but with the 2016 cards having a smaller node and HBM 2nd gen the best thing you can do is get a cheap placeholder as a r9 290/x/390

From what you two are saying, the 980 Ti is the best, which doesn't bother me one bit. My budget supports a brand spankin new one, but was just wondering if AMD had anything better to offer.

Thanks guys!
