I've finally got enough money for a ninvida gtx 960 and now I'm not sure if I should get the 2gb pny or the 2gb evga, I just need to know which one you guys think is better.
>>
EVGA. Bro tier warranty and customer support, and better cards in general.
>>
Please get that price compared if you're at Best Buy
>>
Price for evga 220$ 199$ for the other
>>
Both are great... I honestly like how the PNY looks but idk which ever is good
>>
>>51444562
Thanks mang
>>
>>51444653
Still get the EVGA. The PNY is a reference cooler which is trash. The EVGA has a better cooler, and the "FTW" edition cards are better overall.
>>
>>51444686
Swagaroni that's all I need bois .
>>
>>51444702
Happy to help. Enjoy your card man.
>>
>>51444445
Why not a R9 380 or 380X instead?
>>
>>51444835
Cause muh way its meant to be played

I have no idea why people go for Nvidia at the low price point market. There's just no reason to get anything below a 970, and even that's a stretch since a 290x can be found for much cheaper nowadays.
>>
>>51444835
I want the best for fallout 4 and the 960 runs better than the r9 380.
>>
>>51444884
This is true.
>>
>>51444884
Fair enough, but I don't see it as a smart decision.

>http://www.techspot.com/review/1089-fallout-4-benchmarks/page2.html

Both of them will average about 60 FPS (note that this test is from before AMD released drivers for Fallout 4) and neither provide a minimum framerate above 60 FPS to ensure there are no drops. You can't run more than 60 anyway because vsync is forced on in this game and turning it off fucks things up. Also, framerates are still going to improve for both on future driver updates, meaning they will be essentially the same.

Now, outside Fallout 4 the 380/380X is still a vastly better option. And you get better DX12 support in the future. Below the GTX 980 level, AMD is the better choice.

Why?

Do you like buying gimped products that won't get the job done?
>>
>>51444969
>vsync is forced
That's true, but you can get around it by tweaking the .ini files so that you can run driver level vsync, instead of the in game. which you should do because the In game vsync is trash.
>>
>>51444969
I see your point. I'll probably reconsider in that case
>>
>>51445011
Well, on both cases, you won't get more than 60 FPS anyway (unless you have a 144 Hz monitor, in which case you get 72 FPS and a 20% speed-up in the game). So there's no point in buying a card that averages 90 FPS on max settings, for example.
>>
>>51445011
Actually, the funny thing is the ingame vsync is only trash on nVidia.

While most everything else in that game is fucked on AMD, the ingame vsync actually, just werks.

>I've honestly found that with 16x maximum forced tessellation, godrays set to low but everything else set to ultra, the only time I've had it drop below 60fps was at that Raider bot racetrack - east somethingrather.
>And only when I was looking directly at the swinging powerlines - GPU usage drops to ~60% and CPU sits right on 100%, so I'm imagining it's a physics issue.

>>51444911
Until you disable god rays and force Tessellation to 8x.
>>
>>51445153
>disable god rays and force Tessellation to 8x
If you force tesselation to 8x, you don't need to disable godrays.
Disabling godrays is just for the Kepler customers that were fucked over by Nvidia.
>>
>>51444445
Sapphire R9 380.
>>
>>51445063
>>51445217

I have a 2gb 7850 and can play FO4 pretty well. With godrays off and 16x I goet 60fps inside, and 40-50+ almost everywhere except urban areas or bad weather where it can occasionally drop to 20-30.

How much worse does 8x look? Might be worth a try to see if it helps performance out even more.
>>
>2GB

No
>>
>>51445348
I haven't tried Fallout 4, but if it's the same as The Witcher 3, then 16x makes zero visual difference and 8x makes a tiny one that you can only notice by taking a screenshot and zooming in the picture to compare pixels.

The difference gets more noticeable at 8x if you're using higher resolutions like 4K, but if you have a 7850 you obviously don't play at 4K.
>>
>>51445400
Right, 1080p.

I'm considering grabbing a new video card on black friday and maybe a 1440p monitor, but unless I can get a decent card for around $300 that can do it well I probably wont bother.
>>
I got the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SSC ACX 2.0 with 4GB VRAM. Love it
>>
>>51445605
>I got a crippled card with a 128-bit bus and shit DX12 support, which performs worse than the competitor at the same price, I love it.
kek
>>
Buy the 4gb Strix, famm
>>
>>51445437
Black Friday deals will be lacklustre, I'm calling it now.

There are other options though,
- Buy an extra 7850/7870/270/270X refurbished for crossfire
- Buy a new 290 cheap
- Buy a refurb 290X
- Buy a refurb 970

refurb GPUs from gpushack, new gpu find the best price on pcpartpicker.

Wait for Pascal.

look man i know you must be impoverished but do yourself a favor and save up a few more paychecks for a card with at least 3.5gb
