Need advice with graphics card

joeydutchman

So I'm planning on buying a new graphics card but I'm really unsure about which one I should get.

I'm thinking about getting the GTX 970 because it performs good and it has a good price but if I get the 970 then which one do I get? MSI, ASUS etc.

Thanks,

joey

The one that you like!

And if you really can't decide, EVGA

If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

Well knowing the rest of your specifications may help.

I've got nothing but good things to say about EVGA so they have my vote. But I've used MSI in the past and they seemed to be good cards.

I have to jump on the R9 390 bandwagon here. But if you are not getting the 390 any of the brands listed are good. For the 390 stay away from asus or gigabyte

[CPU] i5-650 [GPU] MSI GTX 750 OC [RAM] Generic 6GB [MOBO] MS-7613 [HDD] WD Blue 1TB [PSU] Silverstone Strider Essential 500W [Next build Q1 2016 http://de.pcpartpicker.com/user/Presmo/saved/ ]

Please follow your own topics.

As long as the mobo has a PCI-E x16 slot you are fine though I am more or less worried about your Power Supply, do you know what it is? If not can you get a picture? What brand was the pre-built?

All I really know about my power supply that it's 450watt, the brand of the pc itself is: Medion.

It's too dark atm so It would be hard to take a picture, I will post a picture tomorrow when it's daylight

That PSU is poop sorry man is a dual rail and not a good one. I´d recommend an EVGA 650 G2 or so.

Speaking of someone who owns a 970, tbh I would say keep your extra dollars for a 980 or 980ti. I'm quite disappointed about its performance. In gta 5 with everything in ultra it's barely hitting and staying in the 69fps range, UN arma 3 it gets worse! Sometimes iT drops to freaking 21fps, don't even get me started on borderlands.... Save your dollars, it's worth it.

I think you should just save up and buy 4 tesla K80s for dem frame rates... Jokes aside, get a 390 but if you really do want to avoid AMD then EVGA is the best Nvidia vendor.

 

 

Get a better PSU before you blow your PSU and possibly destroying you hardware as well cause that's a piece of Junk :D

Don't get a strix or a gaming, they are voltage locked pretty low, MSI seem to be the best for overclocking for 1600mhz.

1. What's your total budget for this upgrade that you're willing to spend? 

 

2. What resolution is your display(s)?

 

3. You WILL need a new PSU.

With my gtx 760 i get with gta 5 on high 70-90 fps and arma 3 30-50 fps and i dont think i will be able to afford the 980 but it is sometimes only a 7-10 fps difference and that isnt worth 200$ imo

In that case a GTX 970 or R9 390 will do you quite well for a long time yet.

I would recommend something in the 650w range and with an 80+ gold rating. Semi or fully modular is nice, but not essential. Making sure it's of good quality is most important. The Cooler Master V series and EVGA G2 or GS series are very good. Should be able to get one for about what you might get from selling your 760 (~$120-150). NEVER "cheap out" when it comes to PSUs.
