What Is A Good GPU For Me?

Hello, i was wondering what a good GPU would be for me.
I want to be able to play various games such as GTA V, Saints Row IV, Skyrim and Far Cry 4 on medium to ultra graphics.
Please do not recommend AMD GPU's, i only want to be suggested NVIDIA GPU's.
Thank You.

  1. Well, can't really suggest any gpus. I would to know your pc specifications including power supply and your budget.
  2. What would be your ideal budget, Nvidea gtx 960 should fullfill your needs with good power consumption however on some games such as GTA V you might have to exclude options due to the low frame buffer (nowadays that is) of 2gb

    Also If you could tell me your CPU that would help as if your only trying to game it makes no sense in spending double on a cpu in comparison to gpu

    Here is a Forbes artical of some GTA V benchmarks across various cards from both Nvidea and Amd I chose the 960 as it is regarded as a price/performance sweet spot however if I know more details a higher/lower end card may be more suiting

    Well limiting to only NVidia GPUs will hinder possible performance. You can get a pretty high end 4GB VRAM AMD GPU for well less than you can NVidia and that's what you need to do GTA V on max settings (more VRAM).

    To do GTA V at max on NVidia at 1080p at least a 3GB VRAM GPU and that wont even cover AA. Keep going up in resolution and you need more and more VRAM. SO to max it out at 1080P without MSAA you probably need a GTX970 or better.

    The other games are not nearly as stressful as GTA V.

    Would a GTX 960 do the trick?
