    its slightly better than 7750, but alot cheaper
     
    it does consume more power, thats true
     
    maybe buy used gpu?

    "I know this is really late but this is for anyone who comes across this. I Had the radeon 7750 in my system and it was good played all my games better then my previous Geforce GT520....expect GTA IV and Crysis 2 were very laggy and unplayable on max settings. I just purchased the GTX 550 Ti for 109.00 with 20.00 mail in rebate so for 89.00 not a bad price (radeon was 149.00 at best buy). I play every game out now at max settings with frame rates between 25-60 very playable imo. Some examples would be :

    GTX 550Ti / Radeon 7750

    Skyrim - min 27fps avg 44-60fps / Min 16-20 Fps Avg 27 Fps

    Guild Wars 2 - min 20fps avg 33-60fps / Min 16-17 FPS Avg 24-27 Fps

    Star Wars The Old Republic - min of 30 fps Avg 60 Fps / Min 20 fps Avg 30-40 Fps

    Crysis 2 - Min 25 fps Avg 40Fps / Unplayable on Ultra Settings

    Borderlands 2 - Min 24 Fps Avg 40-50fps / Min 16-20Fps Avg 30 Fps

    GTA IV - min 16-17 fps Avg 30fps / Unplayable on Max Settings

    System Specs
    Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q9950 2.83GHz
    8 GB DDR2 PC6400 800mhz Ram (I know old school and prob Bottle-necking me)
    750GB 7200rpm Harddrive
    460W Power supply
    Creative X-Fi Gamer Edition Sound Card
    PYN GTX 550 Ti 1GB

    The only difference between those two drives is the total capacity. One has 1 terabyte of storage with an 8gb cache, while the other has 2 terabytes of storage, but the same 8gb of SSD cache. They should both perform roughly the same, but you will be able to fit more on the first linked drive.

    Since it's moving to 14/16nm, i would also expect it to be more power efficient and gain more IPC anyway...

    Manny Calavera reacted to Shine_Syahr in The incoming 380x. It should beat the 290, right?   
    I see it that way too. If it performs very close to a 290 or similar. I'd get the 380x. Since it's a newer card. It is interesting to see what the performance of the 380x would be.

    I like the BASH shell, if you know even a little bit about programming it makes automating things easy. If you're comfortable on a command line Linux makes it so easy to do things. Stuff like download every image from a site, make a copy of a streaming video, rename all the files in a directory, etc. Another big plus is there is so much amazing free software out there for Linux. Half the time when you install free software for Windows they try to sneak in a browser toolbar.

    Don't do it cold turkey. I have been using Linux for 15 years so I'd do the switch overnight. But it's different and not everything will be familiar to Windows users, so I'd advise installing it on another partition and getting familiar with it for a few months at least.

    Hey, if Vulkan becomes mainstream, we can all shave off $100 on our gaming builds since we can use free Linux instead of Windows! That just got me really excited!! (Though, for people like me, I might still have to use Windows since I want certain programs that Linux doesn't have. Then again, WINE would hopefully work for at least some of them. Exciting possibilities ahead either way!)

    AMD has already developed a prototype driver for Linux, although it will be closed-sourced initially (but they promised to make it open-source later).

    Here's a full transcript, courtesy of everyone's favourite website, WCCFtech:
     

    As for my thoughts, I think it's great for Valve to push for competition, pitting themselves against Microsoft and DX12. We just need to get some good performance numbers, get developers on board and I think we're all set. Here's hoping that Vulkan will be successful, if not more than DX12. It's pretty much a win-win scenario for us.
