Need GPU help ASAP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


I need help picking a new GPU setup for general gaming and VR. I have a Gtx 970 atm but I want to upgrade


What should I do?


Here are some of the options I'm considering.


-Buying another 970 and putting it in SLI 


-Selling my 970 and getting 2 AMD RX 480 in crossfire 


-or also selling my 970 and getting a higher end single GPU like the 1070/1080


With VR in mind Which of these is a better option especially considering selling my 970 is a real hassle?

Well, if you can afford it.... I would say go for the 1080. 



Motherboard: MSI X99A Sli Plus,       RAM: Corsair CMK32GX4M4A2400C14 Vengeance LPX (32GB),
CPU: Intel i7-5820K,      GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 960,       PSU: Corsair Gaming Series GS600,
HDDs: 2x Toshiba P300 1TB 64MB 7200RPM,      SSD: Crucial BX200 240GB
All inside a Corsair Carbide 300R with a Corsair CW-9060007-WW Hydro Series H60.


Have a good day everyone!

I have no recommendation for you, but a few questions to the geeks in here.

Considering VR we can expect a bunch of new games in development. As we know VR needs a lot of GPU power the developers will do everything to get their games running smoothly.They know, that the potential customers will have new Graphics Cards.

Considering these 2 things i think they will programm their games (most likely) exclusivly for direct X12 where amd right now is ahead of nvidia.

So concidering these facts, isn't a crossfire rx480 way more valuable than a single 1070 and propably even to a 1080? I haven't seen a benchmark, but i really would like to see the comparison 2x rx480 against 1070/1080 on dx12 titels.
