Okay, so I've been considering an upgrade to my graphics for a while now and wanted to get some feedback. What would be my best option in terms of future proofing my system and being able to play games @ 1080p? I currently only run 1 monitor and would like to play high/ultra settings in BF4 at good frames.
I have never overclocked either my GPU or CPU, I am a bit of a computer noob. I would not be opposed to that option, just always heard it talked about but never attempted. I'm doing this mostly so that I can play BF4 on awesome settings.
I have heard that the 7950 would be a good option if I overclock it, other wise a 7870 might be a better stock option. The price range is almost a $200 difference between the 7870 and the 7970, so I don't want to overpay for something if there is a better option for the price/performance that I need.
As a long time AMD/ATI user it pains me deeply to say this but the Nvidia GTX760 is a better overall choice-virtually the same performance as the 7950 but $50 or more cheaper.
Of the cards linked to, the 7950 is the sweet spot (which is why I run one ). And it gets even better with an overclock.
If you can get hold of the 'never settle' game bundle the 7950 is even better.
