Help! My first build: 970 or Pascal?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This will be my first gaming rig build so I'm wanting to start off strong on the graphics card. My question is at this point will they have a 300-400 dollar pascal card and would it be worth it to wait? The guy I'm building this with says to just get the 970 but I want to make this last as long as possible.
So far what I have:
Corsair 540 case
Antec 750w plus bronze
Intel i5 4460
Western Digital black 1tb
Samsung 850 evo 250 gb SSD
Asus Z97-A motherboard
Corsair vengeance pro 18gb 2400mhz RAM
Windows 10 key
Cooling master hyper 212 plus air cooler
Thanks!

if you want to wait months, wait for pascal, if not get a 970 simple.

The answer of that question is the answer of that other question:
'Can you wait ?'

Sorry it messed up typing this. Basically how long will it be till those cards for sure will be out?

The big Pascal will most likely come out first, so it'll be a while before the 970 Pascal equivalent shows up. That said for some reason I want to say that AMD's Polaris answer to the 970 segment is coming out 1st. If that happens then the 970 should see a price drop.

What are you currently using, do you have a GPU now or no system at all?


Basically things wont change all that much for the rest of your built. You can always build it now and use integrated or your old GPU.

I did that years ago, built my system and waited a few months before I bought my new GPU just due to timing/budget.
