Just make sure your GPU is 1.21 jigowatt-certified, and you should be fine.

A lot of AMD cards are at stupidly high prices because of mining. I think a 290X costs as much as a 780 Ti right now, and most are sold out. The 780 Ti stomps the 290X pretty hard in gaming performance. The same/similar can be said about other price brackets.

I'm not thinking anything too fancy this time around - just an i5 (probably a 4570) and something along the lines of a GTX770.

BTW, I'm mostly going to be gaming on a 1080p display (see sig), so I'm guessing that a 2Gb card will be acceptable rather than the more expensive 4Gb?

A 770 will be perfectly fine for 1080p.

I was more wondering if I should go 770 2Gb or 770 4Gb - I'm guessing the 4Gb flavour is for crazy high fill rates of 1440p+?

The 4gb version is for I don't know what. It doesn't have the memory interface to properly take advantage of that much ram. Just get the 2gb one and call it a day, getting the 4gb version is just throwing away $50 that you could spend elsewhere.

Which is great since uninstalling and reinstalling drivers sucks.


Meh... You get used to it
