Graphics card help

I am building a gaming/editing PC on a tight budget ($1,300 without peripherals). I need to know if this graphics card is ok or if i should think about getting a better one.


2GB AMD Radeon R7 260X Overclocked (896 Streams), D-Sub/DVI-D/HDMI


Any help would be appreciated.



For $1,300 you should get a much nicer graphics card, what's the rest of you specs?

take a look at the R9 280x probably the best performance for the money and only about $300

This is the rest of the spec

MSI B85M-E45 Intel® B85 uATX Motherboard

New 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-4770 Quad Core Processor (3.5GHz, 8MB Cache)

8GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory (2x4GB) Kit

550W HEC Desktop Power Supply

1TB SATA III 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64Mb Cache, 8ms Hard Drive

5.1 High Definition onboard sound card - 6 Channel Cinema sound

Cougar Solution Mid Tower ATX Gaming Case - Black USB3

You don't need a soundcard

It's onboard, it is preinstalled on the motherboard, so technically its free with the motherboard.

I maybe mistaken though, if you are buying a separate sound card then you don't really need it. Unless you are an audiophile.

No it is pre built on the motherboard your right

that really $1300 worth of parts?

Maybe this instead.

I'd go this route 

+1 for this build. well done! ☺

+1 as well

deano1998 if you paid $1300 for that hardware please say its gold plated.
