If you bump it, you're looking at the 770.


$400, right? Who are the best manufacturers?


EVGA is the best for Nvidia cards.

Honestly though it's hard to recommend a GTX 770. Compared to the R9 280X, it's $100 more and performance is within a couple %.


100 dollars more for PhysiX, better driver support, and EVGA customer service. I think thats worth the 100 dollars.

"better" driver support

nvidia has had it's share of problems recently, moreso than amd in fact.

a 770 literally performs the same as an r9 280x for $100 more... plus they're likely to go on sale soon, especially on black friday, i wouldn't buy one right now.

i wouldn't buy any card until the dust settles from these recent launches...

Who is the best for ATI cards?

I'd go with either of these:

The HIS IceQ X2 cooler is great, and MSI's TF line are historically great overclockers.

Is it a big pain in the butt switching between Nvidia and ATI?

uninstall drivers, install card, reinstall drivers.

simple as that.

So I'm getting ready to order my card, just a few last things. A 280x is definitely better than a 7970? Both are a substantial upgrade from a 560 Ti? Thanks.
