    amd r9 270x i can play bf4 maxed out with 4xmsaa/hbao on a 1080p at around 45 fps give or take a few
  2. Best answer
    what price are you at? i would say, get a r9 270x for $200, for 1080p gaming;
    with extra performance at 1440x900.

  5. The R9 270X is probably a little bit overkill for 1440x900, but yes it does allow you generally to turn all settings up and get 60+ fps on the things that you play, so i don't think it is that much overkill that it is not worth it. The R9 270 is $30 cheaper and would do just as well for you.
    Do those 2 cards would be my suggestion.

    Basically a 2GB 7850 might be a possibility, but their prices are so close to the R9 270 currently that it is not really worth it. However if you can get one for around $130 maybe $140 it would be well worth it.

    oops I accidentally clicked the best solution instead of the reply so I'm just gonna ask another question. Is the gtx 650 ti boost enough for this? its at 150$.
  7. not for max graphics at high fps, but on medium-high on fair fsp

    Yeah it is on your monitor.
  9. the 270 is great and oc to a 270x stock performance easy :P when they came out i watched a review and they just turned the sliders on afterburner all the way up and was fine.and i like that it just uses 1 6 pin connector haha

    would the r9 270x be also enough for 1080p when time comes for upgrading? Also which of those 3 cards you mentioned has best performance?

    Yes it is enough for 1080p. the 3 cards with the best performance are the gtx titan r9 290x and the 780ti
  12. Also i forgot the most important info guys: My psu is an antec vp550 so i hope the cards suggested are compatible for this.

    i meant the best card among rvilkman's post r9 270,r9 270x performance-wise and value-wise, 7850. those high-end you mentioned are too expensive for me .

    Yes I've made up my mind that the r9 270x is the best for me.Thanks guys. Thanks nikita I would've chose you as best answer but i accidentally clicked it a while back ,sorry. Hope i could fix that.
  19. even 270x will drop to 28fps maxed out at that resolution...get a 280x
