Depend on price and if you care about nvidia features and softwares or not.

The 980 is a superior GPU, it overclock a lot better and is a lot more energy efficient therefore will run cooler and quieter.

What kind of price difference are you looking at?

Honestly I find it hard to recommend the 980 or Fury over a 390X. I've always been biased towards lots of VRAM though.

4GB IS a lot of VRAM...8GB is totally useless.

Well if you are gonna play Fallout 4, GTX 980.  For some odd reason the 970 gets better performance than the 390, so the 980 will definitely do better.  Also yeah the 980 is faster.

Depends on the price, if you can get a 980 for less than 20 bucks more go for that, if more than 40 bucks 390x, if in between that's a grey area imo (aka idk, not my price point)

4GB is average, 8-12 is a LOT

The 390X has my recommendation. I've got a 290X and love it. This generation of Nvidia cards hasn't really impressed me.

It was fine 6 months ago, just amd figured out how to fix their cards performance with software/refinement. Before that 970 was king of the hill in bang for your buck, that is no longer true however.

Funny how that happens, huh? Maybe next time when something as big as Crimson launches you'll look into its effects before commenting? :P

snip lol!

hey lol WTF...980ti 60FPS average @ 1440p...hahaha man i played about 4 hours the other day including Lexington city and the ABSOLUTE lowest framerate that i have observed was 55FPS and i would say my average was around 90FPS with many instances at which i was getting 120FPS+...graphics details MAXED out at 2560x1440...those numbers won't make ANY sense what so ever unless maybe they tested the GPU on an FX-8150 or an i3 of some sort or something...and the GTX980 is not even there, but it's a given that it would perform a lot better than any amd cards in that game including even the FuryX...i would bet anything on this! ;)

depends what he is doing though... if you plan to play skyrim or fallout 4 with mods, 4GB of VRAM will never hold up. it is eaten up FAST...

 

390X is equal at 1440p as to most entry to mid level 980s bar the super factory OC ones...

not even worth arguing...maybe his 3rd gen core i5 is hitting his performance real hard i don,t know but i SWEAR i get MUCH better results than this...MUCH BETTER.

That game on my system feel LIGHT as fuck and when i get performance dips in lexington it's my CPU or inneficiency in the code but when those dips happen my GPU LOAD also drop along with it...so it's not even the GPU...and as i said...55FPS absolute lowest i've seen.

EDIT: fed up guy here has had enough, i'm recording a fucking video with shadwoplay and uploading to youtube RIGHT NOW!

will post link later.

EDIT2: nevermind stupid broken game won't even launch if shadowplay is running :( no can do.

:lol: Don't get up in a twist. I had Fallout running tits and then it went sideways again. Not sure if RAM or CPU is causing the bottleneck but I myself have one bad. I just like pushing your fanboy button because of the cool sounds you make :ph34r:

depends.

 

you people, yes YOU INCLUDED, always seem to think a PC consists of "GAME or OS + other crap"... not "GAME AND OS + other crap"

god knows what was running in the background. Some tasks are known to be CPU hogs, so who fucking knows eh?

 

we dont exactly have all the details, do we now?
