Which one is best?

Hi guys

Im looking for the best Gpu out of the 3 i am thinking of. Can you maybe help me choose as i am so out of sync with all the new cards available.
Please note that it becomes very hot in my location over 40 degrees Celcius in the summer. And i have been having heat issues in the past also i have a coolermaster GXII 650W Powersupply. Would be appreciated if you can help me get the "best". So id like to run as good as possible without the heat threat.

    Hey daar! Hoe lykit?

    :)

    Pryse in Suid Afrika is bietjie snaaks teenoor die res van die wereld, so meeste mense op Toms gaan dit snaaks vind.

    Maar inelkgeval.
    Die R9 280x is die vinigste kaart daar.

    Hys so 10% beter as n GTX760 maar is 15% duurder.
    Dis maar jou besluit of dit die geld werd is, hou in gedagte die GTX760 is honderd percent goed genoeg vir 1920*1080.



    Oh en nie een van die kaarte sal n probleem met ons hitte he nie.

    PS : Vergeet die R9 280(non-x), hys stadiger as die R9 280x en duurder.
  4. Hi guys
    Thanks for the quick replies. I like the r9280x alot. And might be my the card i go for.
    Can anyone maybe tell me how hot it gets as reviews on YT is not speaking alot of it. and as i mentioned the heat threat is my biggest concern. And its always good to find a fellow countryman on a site.
    Thanks again guys

    The heat shouldn't be that bad with a aftermarket cooler
  6. By the way guys, just to avoid anyone finding offence in me talking my native language, you can pop that whole part into Google Translate, select Afrikaans, and you will see the full translation.

    Anyway.

    I own a HD7950(which is a R9 280) with that same cooler. Which will have very similar temps to that card.

    Max temps under stress test under load are in high 60s/low 70s.
    At my max OC 1250MHz i get around low 90s max temp. But thats a massive overclock on air.

    Here are some numbers :
