GPU Upgrade - Page 2

post #11 of 14
If you can find anything with faster VRAM, get it.

PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4gb, Sapphire RX 470 Platinum 4gb, Sapphire RX 470 Nitro+ 4gb, XFX Radeon RX 470 RS Triple X 4gb.

6,600mhz -> 7,000mhz memory speed does make a difference.

Thread Starter 
Ive changed my mind guys, I think ill go for the 1070, because i’m from Chile and here this card costs 250 dollars more than in the US, 480 is at almost 400 bucks and there is a shortage also, no relatives/friends are travelling to US any time soon so this is a one-time chance to get a notable GPU upgrade.
MSI and EVGA are the only ones with international warranty? If my dad could test the card on the store it would save us from a bad surprise. He is going to Washington first and then to Denver, i think the former has more PC stores. i found this one http://www.microcenter.com/site/stores/denver.aspx

1070 is the best choice specially cuz i can crank the most demanding games even more and use DSR or more AA, which would mean even more graphic beauty. Would there be a huge difference in graphics if I get a 1440 or 144hz monitor? is Gsync too expensive compared to Freesync? the problem is i can’t buy good cards at US prices every year because of availability and cost in my country, so 1070 would last more and it will be easier to sell if I were to upgrade in a few years. . 480 would have been a good idea but this is the time to invest big bucks, and if that means overkill so be it, i have to think about the future.

Well I have 2 top choices, EVGA SC and Asus Strix, what brand would you pick?

I would also lean toward the EVGA given those choices.
