AMD Polaris Giveaway

Recommended Posts

My rig has a core i7 4790 (non-K) and a GTX 745 in it. and I would love to upgrade very soon. as my motherboard is a cheapo from a Acer prebuild and my PSU keeps craping out on me. And omfg this GPU... you let it run for 10 mins in any graphics intensive game with direct x (AT BASE CLOCK SPEEDS) and it crashes with the message that the device was hung. The thing only has the PCIE slot it is connected to to power the damn things 55w TDP. To put the GPU into perspective if I want to play BF4 I have to play at 900p at min settings and I still have to underclock the GPU if I want to play for more that 10 mins. Gibe nao pls. srsly. This is my only working PC atm and I have the money to upgrade the motherboard and PSU to accommodate a new GPU but i don't have the money to get the GPU, all the nice things i buy would be sitting a case doing nothing.

Hello, I'm currently using a GTX 970 as my old card died after a few years of ware and tare. It was a quick grab and a slight upgrade from what I had, I've always gone for the cheaper alternatives and I've been using Nvidia for ages now, my latest Radeon card was a 9800 Pro. It would be sad if I was still using that.

I'm guessing I'd get a few more FPS with this card and wouldn't have to say RIP to my wallet that is slowly bleeding out. :P

I have a R9 380, but it doesn't physically fit in the PC I want to use for gaming (i5-2310 based machine found in the trash).  Thanks for running the giveaway!

I'm just started creating my first rig and in I just realised how expensive can a graphics card be so this would be an awesome help from you guys ?

Currently have r7 370, would like to upgrade but need to replace my case and cpu cooler first (thinking about define s and noctua nh-d15) because its sounds like a leaf blower and a jet engine while playing AAA games. Also want to upgrade my cpu and mobo, but i can wait for zen results.

Back to running my ol' 460. Need a polaris card so I can experience the magnificent Triss Merigold in higher quality.

I have a gt 610 2gb version and let me say I don't even enjoy playing games on this computer anymore because everything is just so pixelated. Even when I don't mind it on some games the fps is just too low. When I play counter strike:GO it sometimes drops into the 20 fps range. But it mostly averages in the 50-70 fps.

Running a R7 250 in an office pc and a 750ti in my gaming rig and this good but can't get 4k gaming from it. Looking to upgrade as I've just put in fan control unit and FX8350.

Currently running a GTX 960, and so far I've seen the Polaris GPUs are a pretty solid contender or upgrade compared to it. Plus, it'd be nice to show Nvidia that they do have proper competition so perhaps they try a little harder with reasonable pricing... :P

I currently use a R9 280X by Asus :)

A polaris Gpu would be nice for VR *-*  (one day when its more affordable)
