Hi
Need help getting my head around all the GTX talk.

I want to get a new card $500-700Max (i want to play just cause 3) my gtx680 stuggled to run far cry 3.

I spotted a deal for a MSI Radeon R9 390X Gaming 8GB GDDR5 for $550.

How good is MSI are they reliable? its cheaper and has more ram so whats the catch?


please help
>>
>>323081868
Mai and sapphire are pretty reliable and brand I wouldn't know about Nvidia. If you're willing to spend 700$ might as well skip 390x and get a fury. The performance increase from 390 to 390x isn't huge either.
>>
>>323081868
msi are reliable.
>>
>>323082281
so all that stuff about AMD/MSI having generic drivers and tend to suffer driver corruption more often is marketing BS?

i would go for the fury but its $1100

would graphics cards be cheaper in say thailand ?
>>
Great I'm about to transition
I looking into buying a r9 390
Is any of the nvidia shilling real?
Will I constantly be fucked on driver updates and games not being optimized for it? Also is the power hungry shit real? Will my electric bill be crazy the month I start using this shit?
Nvidia posters please don't, I already gave your company shekels
>>
>>323083036
980ti>Fury X

on the high end, NVIDIA has been cleaning house the past few years. Also, do a ton of research for yourself for such a big purchase, faggot
>>
check if they have an extended warranty.
there are cards with 5 years warranty, my previuos even had a lifetime one
>>
>>323083036
The bad amd drivers is a meme, I switched to amd a few years ago and I haven't had a problems. And fury are less then 700
>>
>>323081868
>MSI R9 390X
I'd recommend to get a Sapphire instead of the MSI as it's not quite as loud. Would also recommend to just get a 390 and OC it a bit as the X isn't worth the 100$ price increase.
>>
>>323083576
Not if you live in Australia
>>
>>323081868
>$500-700Max
Then you already win. You can get the best card in any consumer class. I suggest 980ti. It should last you for quite some time. The micro stutter is annoying though.
>>
>>323081868
Definitely keep the 680 until the new GPUs come out in a few months.
It's very likely that the new architecture and finfet will destroy the current cards in terms of efficiency.

>gtx680 stuggled to run far cry 3.
I find that rather hard to believe.
Unless you mean "everything on ultra at 120fps".
>>
>>323084263
micro stutter? the 980ti is like the fury both over $1000. out of price range
>>
I'd suggest you wait a few months for Polaris/Pascal
>>
Is the 390 good for 1440p?
>>
>>323084430
Oh. Which country are you in? 980ti is like $600 here.
>>
>>323084330
sorry meant far cry 4.

is that actually happening though (new GPU's or is it just a rumor)
>>
>>323084586
Australia
>>
>>323084430
If you're using kangaroo bucks then just go for a 970 or 390 the jump in price for a 390x isn't worth it unless you find a good deal.
>>
>>323084556
but if its their new flagship wont it be way over my budget
>>
>>323084572
Depends on the price.
I think neither the 970 nor the 390 is worth more than 300€.
Got my 3,5GB card for 270€, which was a very good price, but I'm probably going to sell it for a new one shortly before the new cards arrive.

>>323084609
We've known for quite some time now that FinFET is coming and there will be new GPUs in Q2/summer.
The technology has also been talked about at the current CES.
>>
Question, I also have a GTX 680 and plan on upgrading eventually. What the fuck do I do it?
>>
>>323084994
You upgrade eventually.
>>
>>323084728
then yeah, 390x is a fantastic card. It's no 980ti but if you're playing at 1080p/60hz I doubt it even matters.
>>
>>323085070
i want to get a ASUS PG278Q ROG Swift Gaming Monitor sometime this year as well
>>
>>323084994
If you can buy a Fury/GTX 980TI you wait.
If you're looking at R9 380/GTX 970 you buy now
>>
So when Polaris/Pascal are released will 970/980 Ri 390x become obsolete?
>>
>>323085292
There are certain games that you can hit 144fps in, even maxed (borderlands comes to mind). You should be able to go well above 60 in most cases though.
>>
>>323085045
>>323085401
No I mean what do I do with my 680?
>>
is there much difference btw the 980 and 980ti?
>>
>>323088276
yes, 980 is a bad price/performance now especially compared to ti which is actually a better card than the titan X because of custom PCBs and coolers

I have a 380.

What can't I do?
>>
>>323088009
Uh... what...?
>>
>>323085292
you cant use ulmb strobing at the same time as g-sync. strobing is a huge deal, on the same level as going from 60 to 144. all while the importance of v-sync diminishes as frametimes get shorter at high refresh rates.
>>
>>323088965
so getting the 390x would be a waste of money, just save up for 980ti?
>>
>>323088481
If you wanted more performance, you should've get something better instead. Just wait until there are new cards released and maybe prices are better then
>>
>>323089179
ati scale better at higher resolution but you basically need a grossly powerful card to play at >100fps in 1440p unless you dont mind knocking down settings a notch, which you should because res + fps > graphics
>>
>>323089382
tf2 hits 60 fps most of the time

its probably the most graphically intensive game I play

im a big fan of dungeon crawlers, and they dont take too much to look nice
>>
Is there any point in going above 60 fps if your monitor is only 60hz?
>>
Sapphire is the best brand for AMD cards.
>>
>>323088009
Oh. That's the beauty of upgrading on PC. Every time you do so, you sell the old part on ebay which helps soften the blow to the wallet, sometimes substantially.
>>
>>323088489
I have a 680, once I upgrade to another card, WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO WITH IT?
>>
>come into thread on /v/ about video cards
>expect the usual AMD hatred
>it's surprisingly civilized

The fuck? Have Nvidia finally retracted their marketing arm from /v/'s asshole?

Would people want to buy a card without the box and all the junk that comes with it?

>my GTX680 struggled to run Far Cry 3

m8, I ran Far Cry 3 on a GTX 460 and I got 40-50fps on med/high.
Don't get a R9 390, it's a re-branded version of the 290. Either get an R9 Fury or a 980ti.
Or you can wait until Nvidia's Pascal cards are released, which is probably some time this spring.
>>

It was one of the recommended cards to run it on high (and some things on ultra)

People buy anything on ebay. You will probably make a bit less though. You could always repackage it into the box of the new card but, at the very least, you should use the anti static bag to ship it in. You'll know what bag I mean when you open your new card.

Honestly you should just wait like a year to see what comes out as 4k starts to become the standard. If you're set on buying one now I'd recommend the 980ti. AMD and Nvidia both have their issues but in my experience Nvidia has been better.
>>
use logical increments.

its was mostly black when i started playing, scaled back still occasionally froze

will the Nvidia's Pascal make the 980ti redundant?
>>
>>323081868
lol you fell for the hype anon there is only a few very badly optomized games that are out that wont run fine on a 6 year old card.
>>
>>323090058
Honestly it's all about your experience, setup and expectations which decides where you should go for a GPU. For me, AMD is never happening again. It's great for mid~high-end but if you're building something to push the limits of high res/refresh rate/surround setups... AMD has issues in all of those areas.

I ran two 290X on blocks due to the disgusting heat output. Even on liquid - Zero overclock capability. I also bought these cards early on at $550 a piece, upgrading from two GTX 770s which were just shy of performing in a 5760x1080 setup.

AMDs EyeFinity is a fucking nightmare. I had to run all these third party patches to get the games working and even then half of them were glitchy, performed horribly and just otherwise a bad experience.

Then you have the current market - Which this is to no fault on AMD but it's reality. Goyimworks is everywhere. So many games today favor NVidia hardware you're almost cheating yourself out of a good experience by going AMD which sucks. Even prior to that, there are a lot of game engines which don't like AMD hardware. CryEngine is a prime example, Unreal 3 isn't a red team friend either.

I don't think AMD is a bad company in any way, they simply are being pushed out of the market. Which again - Nvidia fanboys IS NOT a good thing. Maybe this samsung deal they're getting into will help, fuck if I know. It'd take a lot to convince me to try them again with the way things stand today though.
>>
>>323089841
My bad, I read that as "what CAN I do"

I have a 380X that I got for cheap and I'm pretty happy with it (old card was a 4670). I don't even care that much about graphics, its great for me as long as the game runs good at med+ settings, and like for you there's no point in spending on power that you're not going to need
>>
>>323084609
Pascal (the new architecture) will be released some time in 2016. Maybe this spring, but more probably in the summer/early fall.
Your GTX 680 will hold up just fine, Far Cry 4 is an unoptimized piece of shit, don't take it as an indication that your card is obsolete.
>>
Pascal when?
>>
>>323091207
Yeah, I admit I've never done anything like that. I'm just a simple single-monitor, single-GPU pleb. And for that, I've never had a single issue with AMD since I bought my card in 2012. Their drivers have been rock stable for me.

Nvidias schedule reports say pascal is Q2 2016. So... We're close. There's bits and pieces of info floating around already but nothing concrete as to what specs will be.
>>
>>323091140
>will the Nvidia's Pascal make the 980ti redundant?

Yes, absolutely. Pascal will introduce new memory similar to the type we see on AMDs R9 Fury's.
They're talking of the high-end models having 32Gb of memory, with 16, 12, and 8gb being other options for the cards a step down.

AMDs drivers are significantly better than Nvidia's these days. I blame Nvidia's rapid-release of drivers, throwing them out for every AAA game release.
It's ironic, AMD used to have shit drivers and Nvidia burned houses down, today it's the opposite.

I feel that anon, for a modest mid~high end setup I'm sure it's fine. And mind you - This always was AMDs target market so it's not surprising. They're not trying to push the extreme enthusiast letter where NVidia is which obviously is a minority.

I think another big push AMD needs to get on is game streaming. I picked up a shield to throw on my TV... Holy shit is that the best $200 I ever spent. All my gamepad friendly games, and couch co-ops in the living room @ 4k 60fps without buying a second rig.

I'd like to see some more big pushes from AMD to get back on the map, there's just so much more Nvidia is doing in the industry other than flagship GPUs.

Pic related is my current build. Waitin on dat pascal.
>>
>>323091734
>End of computer games
Are you literally autistic? NVidia is the pioneer of almost every major technological advance in games in the past several years. TreesFX was a joke. Goyimworks is a dick move but the results are amazing.

They're hands on with tons of devs bringing their technology into games. I agree I wish they'd play nice with their competitor but from a business stand point it makes sense. Are you going to go boycott the PS4 for not sharing it's baller exclusive line-up with PC and Xbone? No, of course you're not you little retard.

If you had said on principle being that they're strong arming market control - You'd be in the right. But 'ruining pc gaming'? Yeah, no. You've gone full fan boy and you don't even know how to define your reasons for doing so.
>>
>>323092136
lets get to the base of this argument though. is it worth it to pay 2-3 hundred dollars more for a high end card when AAA devs only make console ports? This will only show any improvent on badly optomized games. Or gimpworks infested shit. unlesss you are some weirdo with 3 screens and a $3000 dollar rig.

I'm just wondering about how much it's worth now. He told me he wanted $80 because he's a cheap fuck, but realistically what should I pay for it?

I hope you don't actually think you're maxing games out at 120fps with a fucking 960/380.

>you are going to have to wait for consoles to catch up.

No I'm not. I'll be running games at higher resolutions, framerates and with better textures/draw distances.

And finally, performance isn't the only advantage of the new cards. Stay retarded, kid.

Unless you absolutely need a new card right now I would wait a few months for the new Pascal/Greenland cards that'll probably see a significant performance boost over what's on the market now.

You really can't completely max out GTA V with a consistent 60 fps without a MONTROUS setup. The MSAA is the killer.

get something with an LGA 1150 socket and DDR3 compatibility and slice shitloads of money off your build seeing as DDR4 is no more than a meme and has no benefit (with video games) at this point in time

actually, dont bother with an i3, get an AMD FX if you're going cheap then upgrade to an i7 later and eventually a bard compatable with DDR4 when performance differences become noticeable

Technically, Nvidia cards will usually work right out of the gate when a new game comes out. Or an update will be out very shortly after. Nvidia is a much bigger company after all.

AMD on the other hand usually takes a while to come out with a driver fix, which I suspect is where the "nodriverslol" meme comes from.

The main difference though, and this is something that's been gaining a lot of light recently, is that AMD tends to stick with their products longer. And Nvidia, for lack of a better term, has been jewing its customers in recent years.
While AMD will make sure its graphics cards will become more refined update after update. Their older cards function better now than ever.
Whereas Nvidia is purposely crippling the performance of its older cards in a jewish way of making customers buy new cards.

That and that whole 3.5 scandal really fucked over a lot of customers. I like Nvidia because it seems like a big name of quality products, but after that shitshow late last year, it makes me rather sad that a big company would do that.

8gb of VRAM is retarded overkill too; great if you want to future-proof your setup for a few years though.
2-4gb and you are fine on MOST games.

I'm running a r9 280x (basically a rebranded 7970 if I remember right?)

There is not a great performance difference between the 290 and 390x. I don't know many who would say it's worth the retail cost to upgrade. Perhaps if you find one on sale/used, and you have a good buyer for your 290.

This post reeks of newfag. I mean, holy shit, you actually take the GPU shitposter drivel seriously. Not to mention being dead wrong about company trends. They're both terrible companies that constantly fuck over their customers, but for very distinctly different reasons.

AMD is slow as shit about everything and has typically dominated the budget market because it's a fucking huge company you nitwit. Their resources are split between both CPU and GPU development which has stalled many of their plans for years. Having issues with fabrication factories doesn't help either since AMD foolishly bought up a bunch of them and did practically nothing with them for a long time.

Nvidia on the other hand is solely focused on GPU development and it shows in their release & development structure. Aim for the highest performance possible and say fuck you to any kind of cost consideration. The supposed "crippling" of older cards isn't an actual sabotage you idiot, it's a result of them always pushing too fast for the next stage. Which is still an asshole move, but the shitposters have mislead you big time.

It's like driving and older car and then complaining that the car manufacturer somehow retroactively gimped its MPG once a newer more efficient model comes out. For fucks sake, it's completely illogical.

Be angry that Nvidia doesn't like to spend extra development time on old GPU efficiency, but don't call it sabotage.

no its sabotage and you know why? it bloats the games graphics immensely for the benefit of only a few and to the detriment of everyone else including amd owners.
