i am looking for a new graphics card option for my new build. i had priced out my system with a 7950 but they are discontinued and the prices are sky rocketing. i am looking something to replace my thoughts that is close to the same price(about 350). i will be doing some multiple monitor gaming(three monitors). i want something that is dependable, ultra powerful for the money, and will overclock well. i just want a killer graphics card that will do what i want, when i want. open to ideas and whatever you got. thanks a lot.
as amd is selling out like preverbal hotcakes i'll recommend a 770, though for triple monitor it's recommended to go as high end as you can
thanks man, will look into it.
I would advise against the 770 since you're running multiple monitors I don;t think the cheaper 2GB variant will have enough for some of the newer and future titles. Unless you can find the 4GB variant of it for cheap
otherwise I would recommend the 280X. you can find it under $350 depending where you look and it has 3GB of memory,
this one is $300 but it currently out of stock http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127759&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
Lots of AMD cards are out of stock. I'd recommend:
R9 280X (or an HD 7970) if you can find them. They're out of stock everywhere! I hear it's because of bitcoin miners :/.
For nVidia, I would recommend the GTX 770. 4GB of VRAM will aid in multiple monitor and higher resolution setups. I don't think 2GB will be enough(or satisfying) for your 3 monitors.
I just realized that I'm pretty much repeating what NJM1112 said.
