Looking for an upgrade and could use some help.

I built a computer last year and here are the specs.


i5 4690k


r9280x oc edition (3gb)


1TB hard drive


MSI z97-g55 SLI motherboard


G.skills Ripjaws 2x4GB DDR3 


and a corsair CX600M PSU


I am wanting to start rec videos for YT. To start out I want to use Nvidia shadow play. I know the quality isnt the greatest but I want to start out with it. I have a budget of 350$. So what is the best Nvidia GPU that has shadow play that I can get without upgrading my PSU. Thanks for the help  :)

You don't need to buy a nvidia gpu for screen recording. Besides, your 280X is already pretty good. Use the $350 and get a decent audio setup

GTX 970 hands down

But you would be better off keeping your 280x and using other means of recording

I built my pc about a year ago and im not too advanced with tech. I just watched a tutorial or two on YouTube. But when I play games like Arma 3 for example, I struggle to keep a solid 50 or 60 fps. I have tried many different settings and still cant hold stable fps arma. (The game I want to rec)I did not realize my GPU was up to snuff for video recording. If you have any idea with why I am getting frame drops this would be great.

The arma series is known to be very CPU intensive. Open task manager while playing and check on how much your CPU is being utilized.
