Best £200 to £300 graphics card?

Go to solution Solved by N3D9ed,

770 if you want Nvidia's features such as GeForce Experience, ShadowPlay, G-Sync etc.

280X if you need the 3GB of VRAM.

I’m building a new gaming computer for general use and for playing triple A games at Ultra settings at at least over 50-60 fps across all games. However I am looking for a graphics card between 200 and 300 pounds, yet it has to look good as well. I was thinking of an Asus gtx770 however it doesn’t have the new cooler on it. So Im split between the MSI version or the Asus R9 280x TOP or matrix platinum. Any advice would be appreciated.  :D

If you regard my facts as wrong, feel free to rectify it.

Ooh and btw if you are planning on playing games such as Battlefield 4 then de R9 is better because of the 3GB VRAM

I think the 770 will be the way to go but which would be most fitting for a green/black/white colour scheme in my case?

Thank you for all your help but I couldn’t find a gtx 770 reference for cheap enough where I live, so I have chosen the Windforce edition from Gigabyte. Thank you for all of your inputs, this forum is great  :D
