Hey there folks, finally got everything built but now i need to choose a gpu(s).
i7 3770k @ 3.5 (for now until the H100 comes in) MSI Z77A-GD65 SeaSonic X750w 80 Plus Gold 8gb GSkill Ram
Right now my budget is $500-700 depending on what would be needed..
I play on a single 1920 x 1080 monitor, no plans for multi monitor may upgrade a to a slightly better resolution, not for sometime though.
I want to play anything i choose at 60fps on ultra with very little minor tweaks in settings. This being said my current games id like to try as i switch from console to pc are:
Far Cry 3
and anything else that sparks my interest. Just want to be prepared.
I was looking at getting two Gigabyte 7950 and throwing them in Crossfire.
I also have the opportunity to check out for the same price (650 or less if you guys feel its worth less) two 7970s, one Gigabyte one Asus. From the looks of it they look like reference cards to me...
Check out the posting.
I wasnt sure if these cards were worth it seeing as they are (mismatched, reference possibly, and 6 months old from the P.O who claims no oc's were performed). Where as i could get brand new 7950s with warranty and i believe better cooling on board to allow me to clock up to a 7970. Same price but idk kinda risky going used.
Or should i go nvidia? After reading through a bunch the past couple days it seems that amd has won this battle performance x cost... but im always open for anything.
Current gpu is intel on board graphics hah. Heading to frys or newegg will-call tomorrow would love some feedback
Sounds great, thanks for the quick reply!
And yeah about the heat that is what i was assuming. Any tips on how i could have nice airflow in the case? Im using a HAF 932 Advanced. There is a side panel fan i could direct to blow outside the case, would that keep me relatively cool?
