Recommended Posts

I am looking to get a new graphics card but cant deicide on which one to get. 

 

       So far I think it will be ethier the R9 285 or the GTX 760

The R9 has more power but for a bit more money, but I don't know if it's on of those Intel vs. AMD things were the Intel CPU will have more than an equal AMD CPU.

r9 280 or 290. 285 is not good value, just like 760.

Well if you like PhysX you know which one to go with right?  

Nvidia .. play games the way they were meant to be played.

 


Too many ****ing games!  Back log 4 life! :S

R9 280 or R9 290 :) makes little sense to get anything lower than a 290 if you can pay 250$


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Get this 290 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125505&cm_re=290-_-14-125-505-_-Product. It is only 239.99 $ after rebate and it is way better then the 760 and 285.

How is it biased?  It is fact.  When you play certain games with Nvidia they look better.  There is no arguing that.

You mean the ones I can count on two hands?

I think I would take a faster card over a gimmick.
