Need new graphics card advice
Ive narrowed my search down to just two but i cant decide which one to get.I can either get a Sapphire 280x Toxic 3GB or a EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked 2GB.Any advice would be appreciated.

I have gtx 770 and it's silent, I have never understood it completely in game and even by putting ulta graphics.

They are both pretty much same power. It really comes to what you prefer more, AMD or Nvidia.
I have found Nvidia drivers to be more stable usually but it really is more matter of taste.

770 allllllll day son. allllllll day.
GPU Benchmark Tests.
Note the great price per power of the 770. Ill be getting one in a month or so.

Well i have no preference between AMD and Nvidia i mean ive had cards made by both and never had any trouble,Both cards are about the same price where i live and from benchmarks ive seen the 280x Toxic is just under a 780 in performance but ive never seen a benchmark of that particular 770 so im not sure how it stacks up against the Toxic.

770: 6,207 Benchmark about $330 18.8 bench score per $
280x: 6,640 Benchmark about $700 9.5 bench score per $
780: 8,018 Benchmark about $500 16.0 bench score per $

I'm not saying the 770 is the best card, but it is one of the best for the price.
A 770, 780, or 280x will run any game on ultra without issue.

Hope this helped.

Thanks it did,It looks like it basically comes down to which card i prefer cuz they both are gonna be fine for running games.

If you have the money get a 790/780 but if not then i would say 770 or even a 660.

I run BF4 on a 560Ti (its a special edition card = to a 660/650) on ultra in a 64 man server.
Smooth as silk, lol. A 700 series will run it even better.

Lol,i used to have a 560ti and i never had any trouble with it.

I got mine for $100, i would have saved for a 770 otherwise. you just cant beat $100 bucks for it.
Ichigo_hellsing Feb 25 @ 10:53am 
Is it an ordinary 560ti or a 448 one?
¤MonK¤ Werwolf Feb 25 @ 11:01am 
448.
I was told its a 660 with 2 core locked(the cores didnt work and Nvidia didnt want to throw away a card that was still functional with 6 cores instead of 8.)

I have 2 Zotac AMP 770s GPU in SLI mode, never a error, handles all games in High Spec settings perfectly.

Depending on which card i get SLI/Crossfire will definitely be something i look into in the future so its good that 770s work well in SLI
¤MonK¤ Werwolf Feb 25 @ 11:52am 
To be honest. There isnt a game out that the 770 cant run on ultra by itself. You are better off getting a new card later on when it cant run everything on ultra than SLI'n.
