Just got a GTX 960 to upgrade muh rig, finally time to play other games than cs 1.6.
Any newer but somewhat cheap games to try out? Looking for a fun and beautiful experience.

ya the 960 is just overpriced as shit but I know in Europe it's the exact opposite here stateside. It's like $180 for the 960 and $200+ for the 380x
>>
>>323808971

> It's like $180 for the 960 and $200+ for the 380x

Well yes because the 380x has no direct equivalent from Nvidia. The 380 is the 960 competitor. Even in bongland the 960 is stupid because it is around 380 money and slower.

whats the difference between a 380 and a 380x
>>
>>323809743
looking at this >>323808726
quite a bit. It competes very well with the 970
>>
>>323809294
I got my 960 for £155 with MGS V which I was going to buy anyway, so it was basically £125.

It's hard to go AMD considering the power consumption, fan noise and worse optimisation. Hopefully they can close that gap that's been around since Kepler soon.

>>323809460
>970

Off yourself.
>>
>>323809819

The 970's competition isn't a 380x - its the 390 (which isn't on the chart posted earlier). Still a 390 is essentially an overclocked 290.

Not only is the 380 faster it uses similar levels of power. As for the kepler gap? lel you need to check yourself - these days a 290x is competing close to a 980 when it was originally launched to best the 780.

In practice, people are talking of needing fans on high RPM to maintain decent temps, and driver issues. Raw performance wise they're great, but I'm getting older and starting to value other factors.

>there are people who fell for the green meme

Said it in the other thread: a small 960 at 123 bucks was the best bang on the buck in the world, I literally couldn't do wrong if I tried. I could understand if you could find a 280 for that much money, but then the relatively small advantage is taken back by heat and noise.

The way its meant to be played. Consider the 7970 though - that card has bested the following:

680
770
285
380
380x
and these days it rivals a 780 at times, an impossibility when the 780 launched.

The 7970 really is the greatest card ever built.

>>323816467

Its overclocked vs a 390 (which has base clocks of 1ghz).
>>
>>323816550
>I miss newer titles, that I can't play them, but to be honest I just want to try them out and I bet I wouldn't get into even half of them.
Get a used 770/280x/290 and wait for the new gen, maybe? You'll save a lot of money

It's like the Ti version of the 380. The same card, only a bit better overall.

Better than 380/960, worse than 390/970.

I just ordered a Sapphire 380X

Did I do good or am I memed
>>
>>323816678

As it is fairly rare.

>>323816931

That is because there is technically 8gb of vram in the system (its why the 295x2 is marketed as an 8gb card and why the loltastic titan z is a 12gb card).

>>323817008

Best 1080p card right now. PRO TIP: when it turns up go into your overclocking software of choice and up the power limit to +50%.

You can thank me later.

>The 7970 really is the greatest card ever built.

And it lives in the form of the 280X

It's a fantastic card but nowadays I'd pick a 380X over it because of power consumption and heat, and it's not THAT much worse
>>
>>323817202
>That is because there is technically 8gb of vram in the system

It's still a very big issue using c-u-c-k-e-d ram even if it's combined 8gb. The CPU and mobo doesn't know it has 1gb of c-u-c-k ram. You will run into a shitload of problems when it access that bad ram. You should never sli a 970 because of this.

The 960 is a shitty card for the money and the 380 is simply superior, no matter how hard you try to convince yourself otherwise.

I'd pick the 380x too, simply because it supports freesync for vidya (280x only does for video playback) and a few other things.

However a cheap used 280x could be the steal of the century. Those cheap 290's that were floating around a few months back where staggering deals, 970 tier performance for what is now high end 960 money.

The msi 390x (not the 390 though) is a thingy of beauty to behold as it shows what happens when you give zero fucks and just clock that shit up and sell it.

The msi 390x runs at a staggering 1100mhz and a voltage capable of feeding that yet remains fairly cool.

Seriously are AMD drivers just fucked? I keep try to lock Just Cause 3 at 30 fps, but I can shit in the drivers it doesn't do anything in game. This includes stuff like trying to force AA, AF, or vsync in other games too.

Was this a pre-built?
Now be honest, it's okay if you haven't built anything before.


Kind of rustles my jimmies when I see pre-builts advertised as "super future-proof monsters" with skylake i7's and fucking 750ti's in them.

If it has a good PSU then it's actually nice, a 960 will do good now and later down the line you'll only need a GPU upgrade.

well its not THAAAAT BAAAD.

if your gpu is too slow you can always lower the settings. but most of the time if cpu is bottlenecking youre fucked anyway. also some games like source and source2 based games are cpu heavy, not gpu.

but yea.. i7.. thats fucking useless

I was literally about to buy a GTX 960 but judging by the tone of this thread should I get something like a 280x instead? Or maybe even a 750ti until better cards come down in price?

380 or 380x are around the same price range as the 960 I think.

>>323823204
If you want 0 problems, plan to OC and your PSU is on the weak side - get a 960

If you can deal with some games running badly on day one, can accept the speeds you get out of the box and just want good price/performance - get R9 380

>>323823158
no monitor. got a cheap samsung monitor later. thanks, man. i'd add the guy also gave me 3 years of warranty.

>>323823341

None of them really. 970 or 980ti I guess by default because the 980 is overpriced and the 950 and 960 are underpowered.

If you want your gfx card to have a heat stroke 7 months down the line go ahead get an r9 series card. After you can sit on the phone with the horrid customer service while he tells you to just uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
>>
>>323823460
depends where you aim at.

Like I have [email protected] but I cant run TF2 at 144fps+ sometimes it just drops and my GPU usage is nowhere close full. I only get great frames with a config that removes eyes from chars and whatnot. Dota 2 is also impossible to keep in such numbers. Drops below 80 in fights. And all Borderlands games get bottlenecked by it. Many console ports struggle to run high fps too.
>>
>>323823617
all those parts would have come with manufacturer warranty regardless

I've had a r9 series card for one year and a half now, and it's still working perfectly.

Problem with charts like that - while they hold some basis in truth - is that DX in general is setup to cache as much memory as it can get its hands on. Some games are particularly bad for flushing their cache leading to insane vram usage.

A question that needs to be asked... will the 980 Ti end up getting gimped like the 780 Ti once the Pascal cards come out?

By the time it's worth it for you to upgrade you won't even be able to, as I'm sure most GPUs will be 4 GB at that point.

I can visualize my old laptop struggling to get 3 fps in Ultra quality GTA V

I'll never know how it would have worked because the laptop died

STALKER trilogy. A true must-have for PC owners.

Consult this Starting Guide,
then see the /vg/'s huge Stalker General for more tips and links: >>>/vg/stalker

Play in the release order. Start with no mods - only latest patch, OR get the full "Starter Pack" first; these contain bug-fixers and light visual mods that can help performance as well.
Leave big overhauls for later playthrougs. Avoid the "Complete" -mods. Always play on MASTER difficulty for best realism and atmosphere, and disable crosshair.

Don't give up in the beginning! The starting gear sucks ass and first area is quite boring.

>>323806834
wrong on all the others except cheap. TW2 is the worst in its series.
>>
Wtf it's literally op in the pic
>>
>>323826893
But will 4GB be enough then?
>>
>>323826920

I tried Stalker once and I'm sure I would have dumped a million hours into it if my old toaster didn't struggle to run it at acceptable framerates

I'm getting a decent PC soon and Stalker is on my "games to get immediately after installing and setting up everything" list

Must've been one helluva toaster, since at least on the DX8 mode (static lighting), my 2012 craptop with i3 @ 2.1ghz + HD 3000 + 6GB DDR3 gets around 70fps average, with Vsync off, med-high settings, native 1366x768 res, using Starter Pack's mods. My desktop with i5 2500+GTX 560ti+8GB does the same on all high and DX9 FDL.

That being said, STALKER's relatively calm and slow tempo makes it very playable even at lower framerates, IMO.

Denial is not just a river in Africa, Nvidicuck.

>>323829502
Also by good FPS I mean 60-50, with dips as low as 48 in some areas.

SweetFX doubles the dip amount to unbearable mid 30's at times and so does any kind of MSAA otherwise the fps hovers around the 50s but the texture loading fps dip is far more noticeable when it dips to 40s.

>>323829862
Why the fuck would anyone play on any res beyond 1080 when its already difficult to get stable 60FPS on ultra with MSAA in modern games?

I tried Virtual Super Resolution in GTAV and the performance impact was worse than having MSAA 2x on.

48fps is not the fucking standard we should be going for here.
>>
>>323830150
>I tried Virtual Super Resolution in GTAV and the performance impact was worse than having MSAA 2x on.
No shit anon, it's basically downsampling, of course it's more demanding.
That said, I can pull off a near constant 60 FPS at 1440p in GTA V on an R9 280x.
>>
>>323830150

Speaking of downsampling, I heard someone say that downsampling from anything other than 4k for 1080p will look worse. Any truth to that?
>>
>>323830697

No

1440p is the same aspect ratio as 1080p so why would it look bad

well this generation's *60 card is cheaper than the class equivalent in AMD (r9 380) for about the same performance difference. only problem with the 960 is that the 950 has better price per performance on stock clocks.

and its not only raw hardware that you pay for, nvidia are more on their toes when it comes to drivers support.
