GTX 950 or R7 370?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Saved up enough money to spend about $200 on a GPU. I've had these two bookmarked for a bit:

 

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon R7 370: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202197

 

EVGA GeForce GTX 950 SC+: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487157

 

Just wondering which I would be better off getting and why? I'd mostly play games such as Overwatch and Fallout 4 on High, with little tweaks here and there. My CPU is an AMD FX-6300 (3.8Ghz) and I have a 600W PSU.
If anyone has any other card recommendations that wouldn't go over $200 (or maybe just barely) then feel free.

You could get an rx 480 4gb for $200 or less. It would outperform both of those cards by night and day.

If you have 200 go for the gtx 1060 3gb or a rx 480 they both have a msrp of 200$ you are just gonna have to wait for them to be more available but trust me those cards blow the 950 and the 370 out of the water
