What 280x should I get?

#1Whitebeard11Posted 11/9/2013 1:37:13 PM
Sapphire Toxic is out of the question because it's not available here.

So im looking at the MSI twin frozr 280x, the Sapphire vapor x-boost (They're on the same price range, having the MSI one only $8 more expensive)

then there's the Dual X boost which is cheaper than both of them.

What card has the best cooling or the most power out of the factory overclocked? Thanks! and also 650watts is enough for the 280x right?

I'd go for the Ice Q version.

if you cant get the toxic the asus DC2T is the best 280x (or the matrix), with the msi you have to choose between temps and noise. i've heard the HIS is pretty good too but i don't like the look of it.

asus DC2 or the matrix

matrix is pretty hard to find right now unless you're willing to pay like 100 above MSRP.

Sorry forgot to ask but we don't have ASUS yet :( Only those 3 I mentioned. Also what do you mean about MSI choosing between temps and noise? I don't mind having a noisy card if it means im getting lower temps.

Common sense would tell you that you should've told us that you can only get those three cards. You must be an idiot.

i just bought the dual-x by sapphire and it is excellent. Haven't seen it above 67c after hours of BF4 on max settings at 1080p
