CPU - i7 4771
GPU - ?
Mobo - ASRock H87M Pro4
Ram - g skill ripjaw x 2*4gb

  1. a 770 is a great gpu for the 250-300 range
  2. 770 or even a 780 would be a nice choice
  3. A 770 or 280X would be the best for 1080p gaming, although 770 is more in the sweet spot. Here's some performance to prove it, in this article: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2013/05/31/nvidia-geforce-gtx-770-2gb-review/5

    Defently the ASUS R9 290 DirectCUIIOC, It's as fast as the GTX780, at a lower price. The ASUS cooler is amazing, i have it myself and it's pretty quiet. You'll need to go for the Powercolor version if you don't have an extra £5. :)

    EDIT: for anyone suggesting the 780, it's £350+ in UK. ;)
  5. Have you even read the OP's budget?... Jeez..

    Yes the ASUS is £5 more, as i said you can get the Powercolor at >£300 if he REALLY can't afford £5 extra. So i did suggest something within his budget...

    EDIT: Didn't say that the 280X & 770 was a bad choice, i just suggested the max power he can get within his budget.
  7. A couple of UK site have the R9 290 (not the 290X sadly) at just under £300, here's one now!: http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Powercolor+Radeon+R9+290+PCS%2B+OC+4096MB+GDDR5+PCI-Express+Graphics+Card+?productId=59731
    Keep an eye out at: Scan, Overclockers, Aria, Novatech, Dabs, Ebuyer, Pixmanina, CCL, Newegg (In the UK...YAAAAYYYY!), and Maplins...amongst others.
    Be warned, some of these cards are very large and the R9 290 is well known as a compact room heater, make sure the case has enough space/fans to cope.
  8. dual gtx titans anyone
    just kidding
    i myself am going for the r9 280x for future value,future textures requirement,useability
    in short better FUTURE fps
    go with it or if you can stretch your budget try the 4gb gtx 770 or r9 290
