More about which recommended build
  1. So you have a budget of $1600 for a GPU???
    If so then get GTX 690. Done.
  2. if your budget is 600 and not 1600 then a gtx 680 or amd 7970 would be good. and if your budget is 1600 then you might be able to squeeze 2 690s in. and if your budget is 160 which is the most likely price range then a amd 7850 would be the best
  3. if that $1600 is for just the graphics, you could get the gtx 690, simply put, it is the fastest single card on the planet. if not, i'd recommend 2 gtx 660s in sli, which cost about $460, but offers performance better than any single gpu card (not counting gtx 690). if you want AMD, which I dont recommend, the 7870 is amazing performance per buck.
  4. lol no its 300-500 my bad guys
  5. So the Budget is 500$ ? So get GTX 680.

    Or else if you find that Costly, then get GTX 670 and overclock it.

    OC 670 = GTX 680 stock :)
  6. which 670 if 670 and what about 7950 or 7970?
  7. This one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127685
    Its a most factory OC card. Good cooling too.

    Please no AMD, Many of them stutter and bad quality image.
  8. anything else recommended?
  9. Search any GTX 670 in that range.
    No matter which brand. The main is the GTX 670 chip inside.
    But find a good Cooling card as the Gigabyte ones. (3 fan card)
    So that you can OC it really high.
  10. what about a 7970 ghz edition vs a 670??
  11. Best answer
    Well in terms of FPS, The 7970 Ghz beats 670.
    But fps is't right always.

    Maybe if you can then get a 7970 for few days, try it out nicely. And if you like it then keep it.
