I have been reading other people's posts and I didn't feel like hijacking them so I thought I'd start my own thread. I am looking to upgrade my graphics card (system spec in rig). I mostly play BF4 and Elderscrolls Online (when it comes out), and for example my Skyrim is only lightly modded. I want to play everything on as high settings as possible, ultra or as near to ultra as possible. I will be upgrading my monitor as well, but not just yet. In the near future I will either be playing @ 1080p w/ 120hz or one of the koreans... I know that will have an impact on which card I get so let's assume I will end up getting 1080p w/ 120hz for now (ever since I got a TV with 120hz I don't like watching the larger TV that doesn't have it). Price range I've been looking at is $230-330... but I may attempt to squeeze out more if I feel it's necessary. I have been looking at the GTX 760 and R9 280x... but a GTX 770 is also very tempting (hence why I may try to increase my funds). I would like to know is it worth it or necessary for me to spend more money; whether a 760 will be sufficient or put a little more for the 280x... or I need a 770 for what I'm trying to do. Honestly I'm leaning towards the R9 280x, but I have only had nvidia cards since I first started building my personal computers (so about 4 different cards so far... don't laugh). I'm no fanboy but I do like not having any issues with drivers or compatibility from my nvidia cards. Crossfire or sli isn't really an issue, that's what I said the last time I bought a card and I never did it... so I'm just going to assume I'll not end up doing it again.
So for my needs of nearest to ultra as possilbe for BF4 and ESO @ 1080p w/ 120hz, which card would you recommend without wasting money? And thanks in advance!
