Hello there,

I know this is a question getting discussed ALOT!
But I simply want to know which one is the best for your money ?

The games I want to play in the future are like:
Battlefield 4
Star Craft II: Heart of the Swarm / Void of the Legacy
Watch Dogs ( if it's available for the PC )
And mostly Steam game's
Crysis 3

This is currently my set-up I want to buy;

I'm sorry if you don't understand the language; it's Dutch.
Is this set-up good, or could I go better with a APU in January that AMD is going to release ?
Or maybe 280x ?

Thanks in advance :)

280x 384bits and 3gb vram is a future proof... as the same power of the 770. try find the cheap one and grab.

The 280x's extra gig will not give you that much of a jump on the 770, I personally have the 770, and the card is amazing. Hard to go wrong. But the 280x is better at hitting those 2k, 3k, and 4k resolutions, that's where the extra gig comes in. I would get the 770, just because it's a great card and it's pretty hard to be disiapointed with it. But if you do plan on getting a higher res monitor, then get the 280x.

Hope this helps!

I have the 770, I love it, and runs games like BF4 and other new 2013 games on high settings! Here's the problem with the 280x. They are hard to find, so they now went up on prices. The 770 is cheaper then the 280x. That could be me, but I'm looking at newegg, and I see the r9280x for 400-500 range, the gtx 770 is around the 300-400-450 range. And the 770 still beats it http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R9-280X-vs-EVGA-GeForce-... I just compared my card lol.

But the 280x has 3GB, that's good for 1440p or multi-monitor gaming if you ever decide to do that. But you can always get the 4gb version for the 770.

This is better build.
https://www.mindfactory.de/shopping_cart.php/basket_act...

Buy now one video card for now. And other when you need it. CF 270x is much faster than one card options. Only thing negative side is that you need big psu. over 800w.

But it is really fast with 1080p resolution.

Hi, I saw the build, pretty strong too, but does your site deliver to the Netherlands too ? My German language isn't that good though....

The 280x is about 40-50 Euro's cheaper here; about 60-70 Dollar's

Ofcourse is the 770GTX amazing, but these stuff actually go out of my price range, as I had to upgrade my mobo, CPU and SPU. price changed from 650 Euro's to almost a 1,000 Euro's :/  I'm trying to make it abit cheaper for the almost the same FPS on the games.
