OR

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131571

First choice was the Gigabyte due to budget but looking around I found that the PowerColor is offered as a bundle at Newegg and comes with a motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1647781). Origianlly with the Gigabyte, the MoBo I have in mind is an MSI (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130637). My question is obviously "which is better?" and if I will be able to play games such as BF4 and Skyrim with that one?

BTW the CPU I have my eye on is an AMD FX-8320 (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009O7YU56/?tag=pcpapi-20). So will that be compatible with the bundled motherboard from Newegg?

Thanks.

If you get a 750ti get EVGA it's the only one that supports G'SYNC to my knowledge.


Do not buy anything Powercolor. Ever.

If you buy an AMD gpu buy Sapphire.

That bad huh? Probably why it's part of a bundle. lol
Well if Sapphire is recommended this one catches my eye.

r9 270x performs as good as a 760 I think.

270x is just a factory 270 with a higher clock. You can OC the 270 easily if you wanted to and it's only 5-7 fps on average behind the X model without OCing it. It's a colossal waste of $40 for the performance increase.

Looks good to me. Performs better than the 750TI for the same price.

I have a Sapphire 7970, works great.

Hey i had a Powercolor 9250 like 10 years ago........ it was complete garbage and came with a barebones kit i bought off some website. Ended up selling it to some kid at school for like 250 bucks because he wanted a GPU so he could play games lol.

For AMD, I have a HIS and have had no problems, and the cooling has been great. Just food for thought.

It really doesn't. More competitive with 660Ti.
It's not much faster than a 660 or 7870.

Isn't the 760 only a tiny bit better than the 660Ti?
