    Did you overclock your card at all? I doubt the 2GB would be getting overrun, COD AW runs at around 80 FPS for me on Ultra, no problems.
  2. I see you posting this everywhere and I feel I must address it. I'll try to be quick and easy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVYoiibb2ZU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPUtxxlI5xo 960 and 970 SLI. Getting close to almost double the frames. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmSq25LcTrM Here is the 280X CF, comparing a mid-range to the 960, the CF scale is close to double in two games, but the rest the CF scales poorly. Now for the 295X2, which, we can all agree, is crossfire'd 290X's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlCdEK8uQ4U https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEgsG_wl0kc The 295X2 is losing against 780ti's and 970s. This is a double whammy, it shows that the 970SLI edges out the AMD GPU(s) and that the CFX scaling is pretty much
  3. Easy does it. I assumed you meant 1200 by XXX, because the 260X cannot get 60 FPS on Ultra at 1080 or 1200
  4. Good for you, but don't make judgments for 1080p when the resolution you use has less than half the pixels of 1080.
  5. With your CPU, the 960 is the best choice. I strongly recommend you overclock it though, it will give you some more decent FPS in games.
  6. 260X and the 960 are on complete ends of the spectrum. Its not because of the 2GB, its because the 260X doesn't have that much GPU power. The 260X is pretty much a PS4 GPU. My favorite is when you politely ask why OP should get an HD7970 instead, and they get offended, start a flame war, and then you are blamed for starting the flame war.
  7. Eh I played with a cheap Logy keyboard and mouse combo up to MG1, its really about the mouse's sensor quality.
  8. China. Jokes aside, the reason I bought my Blackwidow was cause it was cheap. $60. And I am extremely happy considering how little I payed for it. The CM Storm Tenkeyless backlit goes out of stock every week, and you'll be damned if you find a K65.
  9. Of course it depends but for me I've always found that the memory clock gives me the most FPS boost in games.
  10. 150 would be a R9 270(X) 200 would be an HD 7970/R9 285/GTX 960
  11. Because the memory clock is more important than the coreclock.
  12. Is it 2GB or 4GB? If its 4, you could do a nice SLI but it is hard nowadays to find 4GB versions.
  13. Ooh we just had one of these the other day! Someone else will prob have a lot more info than me but I'll say it first, don't get do it. 970SLI to R9 295x2 is a sidegrade, and you'll notice little performance increase, and actually sometimes decrease. Please wait for the 300 series, its almost here. But yes, just plug your ol' cable into one of dem slots on yer moboboard there'
