MSI GTX 760 OC Twin Forzr 4GB vs SAPPHIRE R9 280X Dual-X Multiple Monitors??

Was wondering which is better?? Is there any big difference between them two?? Was planning dual monitor maybe triple in the future. I will be playing mainly fps games.

Monitors: 2x Benq RL2455HM (both set as 1920x1080)
Play games on 1, other programs on another (Multi Tasking)

At local store the Twin-Forzr cost $19 more than Dual X

MSI GTX 760 OC Twin Forzr 4GB - $379
SAPPHIRE R9 280X Dual-X - $360

In Australia things are more expensive

Spec:
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K (maybe AMD FX8350 with Asrock 990FX-Ext.4 or Asus M5A99X Evo R2)
Mobo: ASRock Z87 Extreme4
Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws-X 8GB Single 1600

    Definitely get the 280x which is much more powerful than the 760

    The 280x is a rebranded 7970 GHz edition which competes with the GTX 770 performance wise so the fact that it's cheaper than the 760 means it's a great deal here

    With Sapphire being one of the leading manufacturers of AMD cards, you can't go wrong with it

    Performance difference

    So, 280x has no problem with multiple monitor right?
    And can you tell me which configuration should I choose??
    I5 4670k or 8350
  3. The 8350 should be around $30 or so less than the 4670k here if I recall correctly

    The FX series are great performers though for a gamer with a moderate budget I'd still stick with the 4670k

    Both these cards should have no problem with dual monitors
  4. You mean to have the game on just one monitor right? With two monitors you will have the bezel right down the middle...

    Anyway I agree with roland on the parts ^
  5. Ok, Thanks a lot
  6. Hope that goes well :lol:
