Looking to upgrade...but sadly I don't really game anymore.

post #1 of 5

Sup forum! It has been a loooooong time since I have posted and I miss learning about the latest and greatest..."sigh".... Long story short, I'm upgrading my parents browsing PC and am going to give them my old GTX 460.

I'd like to upgrade a bit but I don't game much anymore. Here is what little I do play and own.

Battlefield 3/4
Tomb Raider(2013)
Far Cry 3/4
Fallout 3(may get 4)
Alien VS Predator
ARK(the dinosaur game)
Marvel Heroes 2016
Star Trek Online
Dead Space 2/3
Biohazard 2

Looking to buy some older games on Steam like Star Wars:Rogue Squadron and a few others....


Wouldn't mind getting Doom and Star Wars Battlefront 2 when it is released, but that is about it.

I will game 1080 on one monitor, but would love to hook up at least 3 monitors for music recording/editing software and general nerdiness.

I'd like to keep it under $200, but was just looking for ideas. Granted I am coming from a 460, so even a 750 would be a big step up at 120$

What do ya'll think? I am looking to finish this by the end of June...my birthday is on the 28th(and I've got some good $ coming in) so I'll consider a splurge for myself.

Sounds like the Radeon RX 480 might be just what your looking for.

http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/05/amd-rx-480-polaris-release-date-price-specs/

Obviously its not released yet, but its expected to perform somewhere around GTX 980 and R9 390/X for 200 dollars and release on the 29th June.

The alternative if you must buy before that is to buy a GTX 960 or a Radeon R9 380, which would be outperformed at the same price point a few weeks from now. I'm not sure on when Nvidia are going to drop the GTX 1060 either, which may also be around the same price range and perform better quite soon.

So yea, I would wait for the RX480 and see how it does in reviews.

When I started checking out Anandtech, that was one of the banners that popped up. I wasn't sure if that$200 price tag was legit.....but it looks epic!

I dont think that there's any way in the current state of things it cant be one of the best deals out there.

I usually would advise to wait until actual performance is known from independents with anything, but at the price point its at vs whats currently out there it has to be a great deal even if it doesn't quite live up to the hype IMO.

I'm thinking that is the route I will go, heck I might even vouch for the 8gb version for 230$. That should future proof me for a little while in case I do decide splurge on a few modern games.
