Best GPU for $200? Is it worth expanding budget?

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?

    So out of the two, 770, and 280x, the best would be 280x?
  4. both are good but for similar price and performance+1 extra gig of videomemory 280x hands down mate.

    Alright, thanks for the help!
  6. anytime my friend :)
  7. technically the 770 has better performance but that 1GB extra vram will be super helpful in bf4 and anything above 1080p
  8. 280x is a beast just got one myself
  9. the r9-280x is a microscopically slower version of the 7970 which was a teeny bit slower than the 770
