  2. hi there for those games and the price range the r9 270x is good

    http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GDDR5-2GB-2xDVI-Graphics-GV-R927XOC-2GD/dp/B00FONITCE/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1395251191&sr=8-6&keywords=amd+r9+280x

    BUT before you get this i would like to know you're specs :)
  3. The GTX 760 beats out the 270x in every benchmark/real world gaming and is tied for power consumption for the same price. It's a better card for the money. If you prefer AMD over nVidia though the 270x is still a good card, just the 760 is the best performance/cost card in that range.

    they are shity -
    intel i5 3.1 ghz 4 cores
    intel dh61ww
    seagate barracuda 7000rpm
    samsung 1080p monitor
    aoc 1056p monitor
    (i just wrote down the monitors because i wanted you to know what kind of work the card will have to do)
  5. good thinking but i was curious about the specs MOST IMPORTANT the psu.

    Is the 760 SLI compatible?

    800 wats
  9. yes the gtx 760 is sli but you're mobo isnt.
  10. sorry for asking much but what brand is the psu and be more specific about it.
  11. you can SLi the 760, 800W PSU doesn't tell us much. What's more important is the amps on the 12v rails, the age of the PSU, and the rating. Can you get a model number?

    i am buying a new mobo.
  13. dont now what generation is you're i5 but z87 mobo's are the best.
  14. Corsair Modular TX850M
  15. great that psu should work like a charm ;)

    Don't say you're; it's your. You're means "You are".

    @OP Why the DH61WW? The motherboard seems a definite mismatch in your case. Is your i5 sandy bridge?

    yes


    YES
  18. I believe that 3.1ghz i5 is a 1155 socket, also that PSU will run either card in single and dual just fine. If the CPU is the ivy bridge (can find a 3.1ghz besides ivy) then the Z77 boards will be the best upgrade. I'm currently running a 2500k on a Z77 with a 760OC and run BF4, Titanfall, SimCity, on high or ultra with 60FPS and have dual 24" screens.

    Edit: forgot the 2400 was also 3.1ghz, still same socket though so Z77 still best go shoot for.
  19. Which i5 do you have specifically? If it's a 2xxxk then get a z series motherboard otherwise get a h series. Otherwise you could also go for a B75 if you're not going to RAID your hard drives.

    yup it is 1155 and i will soon get a mobo.

    let's just focus on the card now.
  22. The 770 for 340 USD. You could also refer to the latest post for Tom's Hardware "Best Graphics cards for the Money March 2014"

    ok thanks but i prefer nvidia.
    well can you tell me the nvidia alternative?
  24. Sorry, the 280x suggestion was from an old review. It's removed. Go for the 770; it's 40$ more but it's in league with the GTX680(it's actually a stronger version of that card).

    ok thanks
  26. Sorry stepped out for a bit. cst1992 is spot on. The price of the 770 is pretty good right now in comparison to the 760 and you get a pretty good performance upgrade. For brands Asus, and EVGA are good, MSI seems to have a few more DOA style reviews but I personally haven't had issues with them, it happens. They do have great cooling though. The EVGA with the ACX cooler seems to be one of the best options out right now.

    Another good thing is if you pick up a MB that's Sli ready, then down the road you can just add in another if you start to bottleneck, although i don't see that being a issue in the near future at all.
