after reading some topics, I'm depressed that I can only afford a R9 280x

Seems like I'm at least a hundred bucks short of a quality gpu.

What games do you want to play that your worried about a 280x not being enough? Are you gaming at 2560x1440 or something? That card can run anything at halfway-decent settings

Heads on straight, my girlfriend's beautiful, looks pretty good to me

No, just on a 1080p tv. I feel like it's going to fall way behind once stuff like Witcher 3 comes out. I haven't even built my pc yet, but I'm on a tight budget.

It's not going to max Witcher 3 out but it surely should play the game at acceptable settings.

Unless it's going to crush your heart to see a slider here or there shift slightly to the left, you should be fine.

Oh, cool. Will it work with the Oculus Rift?

Edit: the gpu, not the game

Occulus rift uses DVI or HDMI so yes it will
