I currently have a GTX 750 Ti, I'm looking to upgrade to be able to maximize graphics quality of The Division and Dark Souls 3, (Not currently looking at VR). By maximize I mean playability. I want the game to run at 1080P 60FPS at all times on the current 1x 23" Monitor I have. I'm also on a budget of around $300-$400. Should I wait to see what pascal will be priced around (I'm sure ridiculous) or should I pull the trigger on a R9 Fury or...? idk, thats why I'm asking. ahah Thanks!

Hey there William,


OK - so you want to run Dark Souls 3 and The Division at maximum settings - with 1080p 60FPS being your goal. Well, next-gen GPUs are right around the corner - but if you did buy something now, then you could jump on the AMD Radeon R9 Fury which can be found for $499.99 on Amazon.



For $499, you're getting the GIGABYTE R9 Radeon Fury, down from its $569 list price. Not too bad at all. This card will absolutely carve through any game at 1080p, providing more than 60FPS in The Division and Dark Souls 3.


Alternatively, you can wait. NVIDIA should show off its new next-gen Pascal architecture next week at its GPU Technology Conference, and AMD is aiming for June/July for the launch of its new Polaris-based video cards. You could grab the R9 Fury now, and even sell it when the new cards arrive, as it should retain most of its value at the time.
