Hello everyone!

Just wondering what the communities opinion on the best GPU for around $200 was. Also, is it worth expanding my budget to say... $300-350+ will I be getting substantially better performance without the affect of diminishing returns occurring?

you should get a GTX 770 for around 320. totally worth it and you have option to add another card in the future

technically the 770 has better performance but that 1GB extra vram will be super helpful in bf4 and anything above 1080p

the r9-280x is a microscopically slower version of the 7970 which was a teeny bit slower than the 770
