Solved

Going to buy R9 280X by next week - Need suggestions.

It seems like my present card couldn't cope up with my new high end games that can be set to Ultra Graphic Settings.

- So I've decided to upgrade my card to R9 280X. I thought of crossfire at first place but the budget strictly advises me to sell the current one.

At present, I'm playing games like Watch Dogs, Hitman Absolution, Battlefield 4 and NFS Most Wanted (2012). Should I wait, save money and buy GTX 770 or continue with my radeon selection?

P.S. I've already made a similar thread in this topic; I'm starting over for the confirmation.

  1. R9-280X and GTX770 are comparable cards, both in performance and price.

    I sense more dissatisfaction with the R9-280X than with GTX770.
    With the amd drivers too.

    But, there are always problems with any product.

    It's very common to see problems in every card. It would be a smart move when we choose the card upon our requirements.

    In my budget, R9 280X comes with 3GB Vram whereas GTX 770 comes with 2GB. It's a baffling fact lol.
