Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

I was wondering if anyone could help me find out which 390 is the best. The reviews are always contradicting, one has no problems the other says don't buy it

Thanks in advance,

Nate

Ps I can afford up to $370 usd

Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.

From the post the strix is really bad it has some good reviews

Yeah asus has a lot of brand loyalty but when talking about amd cards sapphire or msi are top tier, sapphire has the best performance while msi make good cards and has great customer service which many people like.

My MSI is great. Sapphire was too big for my case. If you can fit the Sapphire get it, else get the MSI.

What about MSI VGA R9 380 Gaming 4GB ddr5?

What about the xfx it is on sale

It's a good gpu as well. 2nd best in overclocking. Cools the core nicely as well. The only downside is that the vrm cooling may not be enough if you want to run high overclocks daily. 1100mhz~ should be a fine day to day overclock for that card.

Sapphire or MSI, or if you want to save money and get about the same performance get a Sapphire 290.


If anyone asks you never saw me.
