Would you take a 4 hour drive for this graphic card?

Current card in pc - AMD Radeon 5700
One i can get for free if i make the trip - AMD Radeon r9 270X

The pc i have is never used but maybe with the upgrade it would be able to play modern games?

It's most definitely a worthwhile upgrade, hands down, no question.

The real question is what car would you drive, do you like seeing this person, and how much will it cost in gas? more than the card?

It might be worth it to visit with an old friend and go on a nice trip. But if you don't know the person and it'll cost just as much to buy the card, then I'd do that.

I would not.

I can make more money in 8 hours than that card is worth.

That's a silly reason not to take a 4 hour drive for a free card.

by the sound of it being free, sounds like you know the person. I would do it under the reasoning of, meeting up with a person you don't normally see that often and just have a good time. The card would then just be an extra bonus.

If you don't know the person, gather up some friends and just go hang out and enjoy that area.

When i say 4 hour drive i mean 2 hours to get there, another 2 to get back, just in case you thought i meant 4hours there, another 4 back, lol.

@Loserman15: So its a good upgrade, off i go then. :)

4 hours is a pretty long drive, which would end up an 8 hour drive because you still have to drive home.

edit: ok on that clarification its slightly more reasonable and I might consider it.
