Which GPU to use

GeorgeKellow

I've got a gtx 960, but I am going for a red build. So I was thinking of getting the 4gb version of the MSI r9 380?

 

Would I see a difference> 

 

Honest opinions please!

i think you should go for a 380X, as those arn't a whole lot more expensive, tough they are a fair bit more powerfull!

If you think there are teams, this might be a problem.

R9 380 is faster. If you can get it around the same price as 960, it's a no-brainer.
It wouldn't be much of an upgrade if you own a 960 though, look for used R9 290X's, they can get pretty cheap right now and they outperform GTX 780Ti/970/R9 390 on current drivers. If they're too expensive, R9 290s (non-x) are only a few % slower than a GTX 970, for a fair bit less, so value for money wise they're awesome.

Why did you get a 960 in the first place? If you can return it, get a 380x. It's 20-25% faster than the 960.

Well, that's an exaggeration. 15-20% would be more accurate imo.

That's relative performance. 380X doesn't get 25% more FPS than a GTX 960 on average.

Don't buy ASUS GPUs. MSI/Sapphire are the kings of AMD GPUs.

True, but the 2GB 960 struggles a lot with some games and from there comes the big difference in relative performance.

The test results have to be flawed, it's impossible that you get 11 FPS with a 770/960 on 1080p in GTA V

Yep, I can't find a logical explanation for the GTA V test too.

Still, the 380x manages to pull a hefty lead in some games, but if OP can't return his card, it's not really worth upgrading to it. Saving up for a 390 is much more reasonable.

Save the 50 bucks and get a 380. Only a few fps difference between the two.

If anyone asks you never saw me.

I don´t want to be a dick but this thread is in the wrong sub forum! Is it so hard to choose the right one??

 

Then the title... if your view is really that limited just to see red or green, well that´s kind of a shame then. This was explained to you in another thread already and whether you open up 10 topics more or not. The R9 380X is slightly faster by about 10-15% in most cases. I wouldn´t consider this as an upgrade, more a sidegrade. And then you have instead of 45FPS about 50FPS.... major difference! Instead of saving your money towards a real upgrade like the R3 390.
