I need a new GPU, what do you recommend?

I need a new GPU, but my biggest problem is choosing between NVIDIA and AMD, help!

Question by Milos from Serbia and Montenegro | Answered by in Video Cards on Wed, Dec 11 2013 10:32 PM CST

I want to replace my current GPU - MSI 6950 TFIII PE OC. My configuration is:

  • Core i7 4770k @ 4.5GHz
  • ASUS Maximus VI Hero
  • 8GB G.Skill RAM
  • 1x 60GB SSD
  • 1x 1TB HDD
  • DVD/CD burner
  • Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced
  • Seasonic SS-620GB

As I mentioned, I want to change my GPU, but don't know which one to buy. My biggest dilemma is should I buy NVIDIA or AMD? Budget is around 400 euros.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Milos,

You have a great system there! Once you've acquired your new GPU, you'll be enjoying games in a whole new light. But, it's a hard decision between NVIDIA and AMD, isn't it?

I would say that the new AMD Radeon R9 290X is the best bet, but you have a 400 euro budget - which is around $550 US or so. The R9 290X is $599, which is a bit out of your budget. If you want to go on Team Green, and get the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780, it would cost you just $499.

For $499, the GeForce GTX 780 is an amazing GPU, and would play any game at 1080p at 60FPS with high/ultra graphics settings. I think I'm confident in recommending the GTX 780, you won't regret it!
