so i decided to use a 7950 in my pc build will be paired with a fx-6300 but after looking at the 7950s on newegg there were 2 that really interested me the gigabyte version with 3 fans is the one im leanin towards because of the extra cooling or the xfx black edition which also comes with crysis 3 on top of the other 3 games offered by amd so onto my question. is crysis 3 worth getting rid of the extra cooling also the xfx version is 45$ more so would it just be best to get the gigabyte then use the 45$ i saved to buy crysis 3 ? and is gigabte a reliable brand this is gonna be my first pc build so i didnt want to have to rma the gpu in the first week
That is a pretty good card, but the Gigabyte is better, the only reason I'd get that card is if your case had horrible airflow as that card pushes almost all the hot air out of the case
i dont know how my airflow is i got an old antec server case similar to the antec performance plus but it has a couple differences i dnt know what kind of case it is though but is has lots of room inside so i dont think its gonna have a problem also imma put in a 120mm fan in it on the side panel so it blows directly into the gpu the fan i was looking at has like a 147.37 cfm i think it was
one last question i havent played a game on pc since i was like 7 and that was half life 2 ive always played on consoles how do the graphics compare to consoles now and im not referring to next gen im referring to xbox 360 and ps3
A lot of 360 games are upscaled to 1080P, current gen is pretty much a gen of 720P, next gen will be 1080P and some 900P(Ryse: Son of Rome is an example). But you'll be happy with PC gaming, I know I am!
