Hey guys. So I'm starting to get into pc gaming and was looking into building one. I'm going to be using for gaming as well as school work. I'd prefer ultra settings at 60 fps but I'm willing to go down to high if it's necessary to achieve 60 fps. I'll be playing AC Unity, Far Cry 4, and Arkham Knight. My budget is around $900-$1000 canadian dollars. (No OS) I prefer cheap shipping if possible. Thanks in advance for the answers!

.... That might not be enough to push 60 fps on ultra...

Redone and the 280x is unnecessary as you can / and are going to overclock so the 280 can overclock to equal and surpass the 280x.

It is slightly better but more expensive , The 280X is a bang for ur buck. Also dependent on the game.

BF4 Is better on the 280X , AC Unity and Far Cry 4 are yet to be released and it will be a lie to tell u which one will pan out to be better.
