  1. Yeah, get a 280x, the 2gb vram is ridiculous on the 960, all the new games are using about 3 or more gigs but if it's a 4gb card for 180$ grab 2!
  2. Bundled psus are usually very bad, get a separate one
  3. You're going to hold it back by about 10%
  4. Just noticed that it's not pcie 3.0, with 2.0 you're going to hold back the second card, i suggest to just change mobo if your budget is 600-700 and then getting a 280x or wait for the r9 300 series, specifically the r9 380/x which will have performance similar to the 290x but it's probably going to be cheaper and more efficient
  5. Actually we are talking about crossfire here and not sli and his mobo supports crossfire but my main concern of running two 280x's is the power supply, you'll probably be fine with that but get a better one..and getting another 280x is the best choice right now imo
  6. gaming is more important, don't rma it, do it after finishing the game! It's an order from Gaben!
  7. I didn't even know that something like this existed it looks super cool!
  8. Save and get an i5 but i think you won't have too many problems with the fx-6300
  9. Yeah, he will upgrade to the 4690k later but i think he will stay with the 4160 for around a year
  10. Thanks to everyone i think i'll get the 4160 with the z97 pc mate from msi
  11. So i guess the title says it.. My friend wants to do a build for around 700€, and i think the fx-6300 is the best option so i wanted to know if it will bottleneck a gtx 970 or should i go for the i3-4160? Thanks, bye
  12. Everybody says so but i asked around and people say that they don't notice problems while playing with the 780 ti instead with the 970 i've seen people getting problems when getting in the 0.5gb partition... The price is around the same..
  13. So here i am with yet another video cards topic... Last time i wanted to get an r9 290/x but didn't because the fact that they are 2 year old, really it's annoying for me since i want to keep my next video card for 2 years.. I'm going to play on a single 1080p monitor, the budget is 320 € as of right now and i found a gtx 780 ti at that price..but i found a 970 for 330 (gigabyte) so i really don't know what to choose, help me decide, please? My main concern here is vram what i think is that the 970 has 3.5gb+0.5gb vram and if i get on the slower 500 mb vram it's going to give me problems wh
  14. If you get a 50$ case you will be at around 720$ which is only 20$ more than your budget and it's a pretty nice pc, i would get the r9 280x but you said no amd... EDIT: sorry forgot the link: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/C7yNjXdon't know what happened with the double post D:
