You don't

 

You want a 1070, or 1080 if you are baller

 

Don't pay new prices for a 980, it is slower than a 1070 which uses less power and retails for like $799 or something

Planning to overclock? Whats the budget on video cards? 1 or 2?  At this stage id avoid nvidia and go for a amd card. Cheaper and better results in crossfire. So many options though.

1card for now

I always thought nvidea had the edge for graphics cards

Thanks Steve I'll look up the 1070

Also plus 1 for pics

I've only  ever gone nVidia cards.  AMD (ATI) cards have seen too many reported issues in games over the years, much like SLI set ups (or crossfire).  Better off with one monster card.

 

 

Two 1080's!  Will probably last for 5 years performance wise!

AMD RX480 is set to hit shelves very soon. AMD have priced the reference card at 199usd. It performs at around the 400+ price point somewhere between a 970 and a 980 or on par. with an R9 390x. Features their new 14nm tech and polaris 10 chip so its not a cheap rebirth of old tech and 2 in xfire have out performed at 1080 which is pretty fkn amazing at this price point. AMD is landing a pretty heavy blow with this series the performance at this price point is unprecedented. Keen to see how their top shelf polaris 10 cards perform if this is what they are offering for 200 bucks

and no om not an AMD fanboy, they cant hold a candle to Intel in regards to single threaded performance. You honestly dont need a super cpu if your just gaming, mega graphics card is more benificial. multi threaded(k) I5 is over kill. Could honestly get a way with a Pentium D dual core and tank gfx card, plenty of memory.

Few games actually make use of more than 2 or 4 cores/threads

That's good performance for the dollar.  Might make me look at them since my GTX960 doesn't cut it in Doom at Ultra quality @ 1080p 1920x1080 so will need an upgrade for the new range of games I suspect.  Also struggles in Witcher 3 at high settings, but I don't think AMD can do the hair FX that I've grown to love in that game.  Shaggy wolves/bears/griffins is awesome to see.

 

Depending how much the 1070 drops in price when the time comes I'd probably still be keen on staying with nVidia though.

 

 

Oh they have to be silent under load though - my Gigabyte GTX960 OC G1 card is inaudible at 50% fan speed even with the side of my PC off, and runs so cool, I love it.  Never having a noisy fan filled PC again.
