Best under $350 AMD Graphics Card? Currently have a XFX 7870 (2gb)

#1jaymart_2kPosted 6/21/2014 7:33:05 AM
I haven't had any issues with my current card besides having to run it on med to play Far Cry 3.

I'm looking for a 3GB Graphics AMD Card. Any good ones?

Catch a 290 on sale?
Other than that, it's not worth upgrading. Actually, I'd argue that it's not worth upgrading right now if you have a 7870.

Yeah I've seen the R9 290 go under that occasionally or you can get a 280X

Oh ok, was thinking about it cause Dead Rising 3 min. is a 7870.

That's always going to be out of wack until it releases. They set the bar pretty high.

How much you want to bet that those specs are utter BS?

Ok I just ordered it off Steam for $37. I'll hang on to my current graphics card for awhile, thanks everyone.
