Hi everybody,

Please help me decide, actually I had decided to surely go for Toxic R9 280x of sapphire, but I had to wait for my card for a month, but I got a new deal that I could get better configuration because of Christmas offs. I play at 1080P and ultra settings and ultimate Photoshop. I live in China, that's why I don't know the name of some products.

If I wait a month for toxic, I will get:

Board: Asrock H87M-Pro4
CPU: XEON E3 1230 V3 @3.3 Ghz
GPU: sapphire r9 280x toxic
RAM: 8 Gb Kingston HyperX Blu @1600 MHz 1.65 V
CPU cooling: some about 10$ , but good
SSD: 128 GB adata (No HDD)
PSU: 600 w Chinese brand but good
Casing: so beautiful casing around 60 $

But if I get now, I would get:

Board: gigabyte Z87P-D3
CPU: I7 4770k
CPU cooling: water cooling, highly recommended (I don't know name)
GPU: inno3D GTX 770 Ichil Ultra 3x (second best OCed GTX 770)
RAM: 8 Gb HyperX Blu @1600 1.5V ( don't know how it's different with 1.65V)
SSD: 64 Gb adata
HDD: WD 1TB
PSU: same
Casing: same

I WILL GET THE SECOND ONE ABOUT 100 $ cheaper!!

The first set of configuration, the graphics is excluded, I will have to buy separately, but I'm not sure if the PSU can handle it, besides, I will have to wait a month. Inno3D might be not very familiar because it often always distributes in Asia, but the cooling and OC are awesome!
Please help me decide!!!! Thank you!

I would say the second one but a 64gb SSD is very small and will fill up quickly if you don't pay attention and put everything except the OS on the HDD. So if your of with doing that then go for the second one.
One option if you have it would be to get the i5-4670k and the money saved from that put towards a larger SSD , the i5 will run games as well as the 4770k.

Actually, I could replace the 1 TB with with 128 Gb or 256 Gb, for I already have one TB from my old PC with loads of files. I really don't like i5, I prefer i7 for future times. But I have two main issues.

1: how's gtx 770 inno3d comparable to 280x toxic? If I go for 280x, will I have any PSU issue?
2: how's 1.5V and 1.65V comparable? Are any of them faster?

The 280x toxic requires a 750w PSU to be in the computer while the GTX 770 requires a 600w.

The memory controller on the CPU will determine the voltage of the ram to be used. The only thing that determines if the ram is faster is the MHZ , 1600 , 1866, 2100.

I see.

Actually, I am just curious about the quality of the two. Does R9 280x worths the one month wait? And does the gtx 770 support UEFI? Because will not be upgrading my PC for more than two years afterwards.

As you can see by this chart the two video cards are at the same level so waiting a month for a same performing card may not be worth it.

UEFI is a MB Bios and is supported by most modern cards.

You are very right. But I am specifically asking about the sapphire r9 280x toxic, which is too powerful and is the most powerful among all 280x brands. And about inno3D gtx 770 Ultra Ichil 2 GBs, which is factory over clocked and about 7-10% faster than the reference.

By your description of the two cards they still seem to be evenly matched as both are overclocked.
