What GPU would you pair with 5820k?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So Im building another system very soon. Have all the parts picked out, but Im struggling with the GPU side of things. I know this is not a GPU section, but you guys should be familiar with the 5820k and should be able to make a recommendation for a decent GPU to pair with it. Im going to be gaming like a monster, and will be running 1080p/1440p. Im not brand biased. But I want atleast a 4gb VRAM card and cant afford a 980ti or FuryX with this build. Probably about a $500 cap for the GPU. Heres what Im considering.

GTX980
R9 Fury
R9 390x
GTX970
R9 390 - 2 in crossfire

So am I missing one? I really like the 8gb VRAM the 390x and 390 have, and also the 4gb HBM the Fury has. The GTX980 is not in a good price/performance spot, but honestly its probably the fastest of the bunch when OC'd. And the Fury will not be able to be OC'd much more than a few MHz.

So what say the group?

get an used r9 290/hd 7970 and upgrade whenever the next gen of card comes

Could do a 780Ti if you can find one for a good price. Sadly I don't think they had any more than 3GB ram but could be wrong.

I wouldnt be upgrading for a while. And if I got a 390x or a 970, I'd probably just get another one and run dual cards. The 390x is really looking good with all that VRAM.

Grab a cheap R9 290 used until next gen come. The R9 390/X is really not that good (over the R9 290). I would avoid at all cost dual gpu. Stick with a single GPU = TROUBLE FREE solution. SLI of crossfire will not work properly or as good 100% guaranteed.

The R9 290 I have is perfectly enough for 1200p. Might be a bit gpu power short at 1440p but nothing that justify spending now for an outdated generation.

you can get a 7970 for around 100usd, or a r9 290 for around 160-180 use it as a placeholder and sell it when new cards comes

Amd will be using 14nm finfet and HBM 2nd gen for high end and for lower end cards gddr5 still the new architecture would bring a better performance than current cards plus the node shrink and HBM will reduce power draw so your room handle less heat,

Buying a 390x/gtx980 wont be a good idea with that ppwer consumption in CF and some games might not add support to CF/SLI

AMD's next generation cards with HBM RAM comes out this year. It's supposed to be a game changer instead of another 7x00 rebrand. Rumors speculate it'll achieve Maxwell level power efficiency with equal (at the minimum) or better performance.

When it finally releases, Nvidia will drop the price of their cards too. In the meantime, get a 7950/7970 like others have said - they go for around $150 or so.

I wouldn't count on that. Usually you can get "great" deals before new release but after that stocks are so low, that either price skyrocket or remain pretty much the same.

I did that. Got a used 290. It's a beast.

Use something wimpy like a used 7970, GTX 680, GTX 770, 280X or 270X until the new cards drop. Get it used.

If you want something new I would recommend the 380X. I just sold my two 290s and got a 380X as a placeholder card (~$230). It's new so it has a warranty, and it has some grunt. You will be able to play many games on 1080p if not 1440p with acceptable frame rates if you are willing to turn some options down in newer games (use FXAA, no post processing.)

I'm really happy with this card and will be able to sell it for more than a used 290, 7970, 280X etc later.

It's actually quite a bit faster than my 7970 was at similar clocks.

My best scores with 7970 were:

3dmark11: 11800
3dmark Fire Strike: 7900

With the new 380X:

3dmark11: 15500
Fire Strike: 9400

All these scores are publicly available and browseable at my HWBOT profile, if people don't believe me.

This card is close to stock reference 290 levels when overclocked, for $230 (there are frequently $20 off sales on newegg and mail in rebates too).

I game at 5760x1080 so, I really miss my 290s. Witcher 3 is an unplayable mess (this game sucks anyway), where it used to be 60 fps on Ultra.

However, plenty of other games/older games/games that are not gimped on AMD cards and poorly optimized to begin with, play very well at this resolution.

I can deal with it while I wait for Polaris/Pascal.

P.S. Ignore the people talking about Crossfire "having problems" while never mentioning SLI. Crossfire scales better. You don't need a bridge. And it's not 2008 anymore. The "bad AMD drivers" is a pile of garbage too. Don't listen to them.
