This card ruined PC gaming forever

>cheap as hell
>uses up less power than a fucking alarm clock
>you can stick it into any prebuilt from after 2008 and play modern games somewhat

This is THE graphics card that opened the floodgates of shitty teenagers, third-world shitskins, bronies, etc into PC gaming communities.

That was a bad year. Went Radeon for a long while after that. Gotta say, those cards never failed me. Back on Nvidia now and with all the random bullshit that happens with these cards. Damn shame AMD doesn't make very powerful cards. They sure are reliable.

How much power does it use exactly?

Fury X performs better in DX12, though that's not a relevant point at this current moment in time.

I heard the exact same thing when I got a 750. PC gaming isn't worth shit if you can't get your hands on a $300 card. The 980, a fucking $600 card is already struggling with most recent games when played at meme settings. A r9 290 won't last more than one year, especially with VR around the corner.

>I played Arkham Knight and Witcher 3 on a 560ti :^)
I'm sure you did buddy. It ran perfectly at 720p low and with drops.

>>324458636
The 750ti is still a decent GPU, I think the issue is that you can't into options customization.
My 280x runs most games well even at 1440p.
Hell, I can run Crysis 3 on high at 1440p60 unless there are a lot of particle effects on-screen (in which case the lowest drop I've seen has been to ~40 FPS).
In MP is basically a constant 60 FPS at 1440p on most maps aside from the penn depot.

>>324459673
Not entirely true. I tried playing Arkham Knight with it and anything above Low settings turns the game into a slideshow when something is going on screen. PS4 version looks significatively better and runs at much more stable framerate. This game is mostly an exception but yeah, if the games are going to look and run the same I'd rather play on console, at least I get a physical copy, don't have to deal with bullshit and the games have proper trophies support.

I don't know why they would tell you that.

Though, if you got a 750ti or better, then you still have enough gpu power to run any multiplat game that's released this console gen.
And you do have the option to increase the frame rate at the cost of some visual quality. I wish I could do that on consoles too.

There are even some cases where drivers can make a card perform worse in older games.

>>you lie about how "cheap" it is
I'm not going to mention the embarassing "$400 console killer" because we both know it's bullshit. Let's assume you want a decent PC that will run everything and have a $550 budget.

>$560 PC
Now what you plug it into your TV?

>>lie about how "easy" it is
You are going to encounter lot of issues, while building and then go though lot of bullshit. It takes a whole afternoon to build and set up everything. You also have to take care of your PC over the years/months.

>>lie about how "convenient" it is
Troubleshooting, adjusting settings, dealing with bullshit is common.

>>lie about the "games" it has
Everyone is playing Dota 2 and CS. Exclusives are either meme games or autism simulators. The only relevant games are basically broken console ports I could already play on console.

The only positive about PC gaming is 6th gen emulation. But that still has it's flaws.

Dude it's great.

Steam is also incredible too. Much easier to manage than Xbone libraries which takes the worst from both worlds. It installs the game to the harddrive and takes up a shitload of space but you still need the physical CD to play.

you know, whenever people say that PC is cheaper, it's usually in the long run. Hlw many times does this have to be repeated?

The opposite is true for consoles

No seriously. They're fucking great. You'll never look at your PC the same way again when you instantly load games and boot up at least twice as fast.

Actually, my personal point with that image is that games are poorly optimized on all platforms, it's not a PC-only thing.
Thing is, when a game is poorly optimized on consoles you're kinda shit out of luck, at least on PC you can lower the settings and get a playable experience or upgrade if you're really that bothered.

>>324464540

There's a reason why Steam got so big in the first place.
Convenience. It does everything. Sure it's "DRM" but it's tied to an account you have anyways. The only security in place is there to prevent others from stealing your shit or replicating the fuck out of it and causing all kinds of issues with piracy(if you wanna pirate something just use fucking piratebay or whatever)

At that point you might as well just save up an extra $100 and build a decent gaming PC.
450 euros is like $500 (which kind of surprised me, but it's funny seeing your currency drop so much).
Personally, I think the best setup would be this:
$600-$900 gaming PC, $100-$200 netbook for school/portable work, and 1 or 2 consoles (for me the only current gen console I own is a WiiU).

>$300 3 years of xbawks gold (because the price was ass back then) and DLC items (I know I spent at least $100 on those shitty microsoft point cards)
shipped with Pro evolution soccer 2008, ass cred and lego indiana jones

I got $1477 there not including price of TV and couch (because apparently furniture counts) vs $1000 for PC and peripherals, $358.50 for the 40 games on steam I have with 10 hours on them; another $60 based on the 299 games left over divided by 5 for the median price of humble bundle games, another $100 because I know I've thrown money at enough random crap.

So all up you have $1518.50 for a 336 game PC with 40 games heavily played (plus pirated games in some quantity with some (large) amount of playtime) vs $1477 for a 20 game xbox 360 with 14 games heavily played

Which has already come out to almost $450.
And this doesn't even take into account the other games I need to buy (Bayo 2, W101, Xenoblade X, possibly Super Mario 3D World, Splatoon, and a few others).
Though it is definitely worse for Nintendo, they have a tendency to keep their game prices sky fucking high.

I'd like to add a timeframe for both devices
Xbox was my primary gaming device from christmas 2007 to christmas 2011
PC was and is my primary gaming device from christmas 2011 to now, so roughly the same period of ownership (4 years)

The PC is beginning to feel its years but the cost of new parts would be about the same as the cost of an xbone or ps4 as the majority of the system is still holding together.

Also worth mentioning is that I no longer give a shit about handheld gaming while in the xbox period I had a $200 DS with 4 $70 pokeman games and a $50 piracy card

Do you already have a prebuilt toaster with an i5 or an i7?
The low power consumption of the card should pretty much guarantee that you can just put it in your toaster and everything should work.

I would probably recommend the gtx 950 instead. It's no beast but it's stronger than console with a fairly big margin.
However it uses slightly more power and costs a bit more.

I am curious, how many watt would a system with a gtx 950 need?

>>324465721
980/ti both take small bounds ahead of the 970 from what I've seen, but I'm still going to buy a 970 because my replacement parts build (i5-4690k, msi-z97g5, msi-970, core3500 case) is already at $1,225 dollary-doos and I'm not willing to substitute this $500+ card for a $1,000+ 980ti.

From the graph posted earlier in this thread I'm pretty sure that the 980ti can get fucked if they're asking another $500-600 for a !!!!10%!!!! marked increase in performance and muh vram.

Beware of the lengths of the cards when you're buying a 970 because the gigabyte-G1970 is 31cm long and will fuck your HDDs and cables up. It also has 3 god damn fans on it, like zenix or some other brands.

Pretty much any basic system will need a maximum of 500W which will give plenty of excess and allow the PSU to run cool and comfy. I'm on 450W which will probably keep my future 970 happy.

If you're going insane with your PC which is very silly then you could go higher than 500W but it's pretty pointless unless you really really really need it to support whatever disaster is being created.

Make sure it's not a cheapo chinese PSU that will burn down your PC and your house, because they exist in great numbers, but also don't go for some 3lit3 gam3r $300 PSU because das dumb

Only 300? I expected something like 400-500 watt.
300 as in, just enough to power the components, or as in enough to run things stable?

My brother does have a 300 watt power supply in his toaster. If he got a gtx 950, would it actually work fine under full load or would he get bluscreen?

The latter.
People overestimate how much wattage you need for a stable build.
Just for comparison, a PC with 7 R9 Nanos and a 28-core hyperthreaded server CPU draws around 1550 watts at full load.
A PC with a single R9 Nano and an i5 4690k draws around 450 watts.
PCs don't really use that much power, a fucking hot plate draws more wattage than the average high-end gaming PC.

Assuming he has a GTX 950, an i5 4460, a 7200 RPM HDD, a blu-ray drive, a wireless card, 1337 g4m3r garbage, and a 120mm fan, load wattage would be ~288 watts.

Oh look, PC pseudogamers that think graphics actually mean anything.

Here's a hint, shitstains: it ain't graphics that make PC gaming better than consoles. It's everything else. Graphics don't mean shit for gaming. Modern gaming is all about graphical clusterfuckery at the expense of actual quality gameplay, as well as feeling like they need to have some sort of overblown, intrusive story bullshit to go along with their pretty fucking graphics because suddenly they think that having pretty graphics means gaming has to emulate movies or TV.

Fuck that shit. Gaming is best when you can run your game on a fucking toaster and it has quality gameplay. If you paid more than a few hundred bucks for your PC because you needed some overblown graphics card and a souped up, overheating, power-sucking processor (as well as a fucking power supply that could provide a good sized third world nation with power), you're an idiot.

Go play good, old games. Now. Some may be nearly as old as you are or even older, and some may have pixels the size of your tiny little head, but don't be afraid and don't judge the quality of a game by its graphics, because that is fucking stupidity.

Nah, the sweet-spot for a PC is the $600-$900 range.
Within that range you can build a great PC that can tackle most (if not all) new games on high/max settings at 1080p60.

Honestly I don't think you'd have many troubles with an older GPUs wattage if you're not going to be stressing it with games on high settings. The 316W recommended is just to give you a comfortable excess in power so as not to drive your PSU too hard and wear it down/make it run loud/hot.

It states that under load you'd be pushing 266W, which is when you're doing something graphically-intensive like playing new/intense/poorly-optimised games. While this means that under load your PSU is nearing 90% wattage, as I said, it won't be a problem if you're not really pushing your graphics, and it probably won't use nearly that much otherwise.

http://powersupplycalculator.net/
This site gives you an estimate of how much you'll be using when idle as well as when under load, so you can think of where you'd be sitting when running whatever games or programs you do.

Honestly only the lighting makes the game look good, once we get mods that retexture the whole game I think it'll look 1000x better

>>324469846
Honestly, you really want to get at least an i5 if you're gonna go AMD.
In fact, even if you're going Nvidia, if you're doing anything higher than a GTX 950, you should be looking at at least a mid-range i5.

that'd be poor optimization in those games and not anything to do with your build; settle for medium with some games tho anon and in future dont buy a 970 to settle for medium, get a $200-$300 card for that.

This is the whole reason why Nvidia is a meme, either you pay $400 for settings on medium or you pay $500+ for a GPU (why would anyone do this)

>>324471514
I'd go for a 600/650W PSU just to be safe for that GPU.

SSD are dropping like crazy man, you can get a 120gb for 40$ now, instead of the 80$ they were 6 months ago, also when they new cards drop, it'll cause the current gen cards to go down a little in price, so if theyre crazy expensive, then Ill just grab a gtx 980ti

I'm running a 280x and not only is my native res higher than 1080p, but I can even downsample from 1440p with VSR and get great performance in most games on high/very high settings.

Went MSI this time but if the strix cards keep up their quality in say 3 to 5 years, probably gonna go with them. Have an asus mobo though, best boards

Whats a good modern CPU to get? I'm building a whole new rig, not just upgrading my current one.

Will a 970 be enough? I'm kind of worried about it because I want to see some significant improvement over my AMD 6970.

skylake i7 if you can afford it and do stuff besides games, the i5 if gaymen is all you're in for

the 4690k is serving me well but I don't think they're making an unlocked broadwell i7 for me to upgrade to

>>324474609
get a 980 atleast
970 cant handle hardest games on ultra with 60+ fps

What? Intel is making gaming GPUs now? Got a source on that? For some reason it just sounds absurd to me.

I built my very first computer back 4 years ago, by sheer luck I settled on the 560ti for my card. Up until this most recent year, I've had no trouble running any new games at high/very high settings. Its a fucking champion. I'm looking into swapping it out for a 970/980 within the year

i5/i7
i3 if you're poor but AMD doesn't have any upgrade options at a later date; an FX6300 beats an i3 in applications that can use all 6 cores (fuck all) but otherwise the i3 is better

the FX8350 on the other hand beats the i3 but is just straight up worse than an i5/i7
also the 'lower cost' of AMD gets balanced by higher power draw and more expensive MOBOs
source: I fell for the meme and bought an 8350

Worst thing about PC is that there are no good games to play with your $500 GPU

PC is just a legacy machine and an ASSFAGGOTS machine for normies

I spend all of my time on my 3DS
