I think i asked this a couple days back, but wanted to make sure. So I think in Q4 the amd hd 8xxx and gtx 7xx are going to released but I am running on a integrated card. What would you suggest? Get a top end card now? Or get something like hd7870/gtx 660/ti for the meantime and upgrade later? I got a budget of $500+ so I don't mind. Thank you for any advice!
7970 Radeon is the best card on the market atm compared to the price.
GTX 680 is beaten hands down by the 7970 as well as it costs a lot more.
Now if you plan to play with just 1 monitor the 3 gb will be more than enough.
You could ofc wait for the next gen, but as i said above the 7970 is a rly good choice no matter which brand.
