  3. A few R 290x questions
2 years ago#1
1. Would this be a considerable updage from my current 560ti SLI setip?

2. If yes, would I be able to use one of my 560ti cards to be deicated to physx or do AMD and NVIDIA cards not pair well?

3. I current have an I2500k processor. Would this be sufficient for this upgrade?

Thanks in advance for the knowledge

Cheers

I could not find a definitive answer to 1 and 3. I have found various different answers to 2... hence why I came here to the pros

1. Yes.
2. Yes, with a driver hack.
3. Depends on what games you want to play.

You're never gonna believe where I got the answers.

And we're far from experts here. This is really not the place to come for computer advice. Try Tom's Hardware.

Here's Tom's Hardware guide:

Here's Tom's GPU Tier Chart:

Think of the Tier Chart like a Dragon Ball Z Power Tier Chart

Or Mahou Sensei Negima's Tier Chart

Here's my own derivative of Tom's GPU Tier Chart (Much easier to read than Tom's):

Basically, if you're going to upgrade, make sure the GPU is at least Two Tiers above what you currently have, that means it moves up two boxes / categories.
