Hey guys new here, so I'm hoping I got the section right ..
Anyway, I'm a PC noob who bought a new PC recently(i5 4590+ gigabyte gb 6 sniper mobo+TEAM 8gigs 1600mhz ddr3 ram)
and I just need a GPU to set it up for gaming.
I seek 40-45fps(basically fps never dipping below 30) 1080p gameplay on med settings of the latest games so I am setting my eyes on med range cards.
So I was thinking which GPU I should get:
1.Sapphire R9 280x 3GB DDR5 DUAL-X
2.Sapphire NITRO R9 380 4GB DDR5 DP DUAL-X OC
I know the 380 is just a re-branded 285 but the 280x is almost nowhere to be found.. e.e
Would settling for a 380 be a good decision(I mean it has a extra 1gb of VRAM...That should come in handy in the future right?) or should I keep looking for a 280x?
Also, I still don't have the full funds to buy the cards yet..Will the 280x be even harder to find as time goes on? t.t
I have no experience buying PC hardware prior to this so any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
