  3. No need for OS
    No need for Monitor, Mouse, or Keyboard.

    Primary use is gaming and secondary use is video editing.

    Rather have performance then graphics.

    Doesn't change what I'm recommending you. For the money, you'll have a hard time finding something better.

  6. AMD Radeon's build is pretty good. Though I would suggest a Sapphire R9 270x which has 4 gigs of VRAM. It will help u in your 2 monitor set-up.
  7. I've got two monitors, I bought cards with 4GBs of VRAM because people recommended that to me. I don't ever ever get over 1.3GB usage, so I can see the point of getting a 2GB card isn't of a 1GB version, but 4GB is definitively a LOT of overkill.
  8. Yeah, I agree, my 3GB card is way overkill, even recording in some games I never go over 1-1.5GB of usage. I don't play to have of games, BF3/4, but I do play a little Minecraft, CoD Ghosts, Metro, etc.
