I need help with chosing graphics cards for my upcoming first pc build. Im going to be using the pc for gaming, i play alot of different games but mostly arma 3 but i want to be able to play high end games with awsome graphics aswell. The only promblem is that im from Denmark and im not sure if the prices here are reasonable i havent been able to find another store in europe with better prices considering that the website im looking at has free shipping to my location. The cards ive been looking at:
660 dollars GTX 780
585 Dollars R9 290
402 Dollars GTX 770
Wich one should i get or are the prices ridicules, until this point ive mostly been thinking about the R9 290 considering its relativly cheap price point plus nice perfomance with the aftermarket coolers.
Go for the R9-290 aftermarket cooler indeed, those prices are not rediculous, $585 is equal to €428 for an aftermarket R9-290. the prices just went equal between Europe and US, thats why it looks like the prices in the US went sky rocket high, but basicly this is not the case. Only some Nvidia cards are cheaper in the US i dont know realy why that is!!
R9-290, is realy a nice card, its also the most powerful of those 3. it beats the GTX780 in almost every game.
For gaming, the 4670K is plenty powerful, unless you want to play an enormously open world game with TONS of different entities and variables being calculated at once. Then, you might (and I say might) want to upgrade to a 4770K, and only then if you feel you have to play the aforementioned game at ultra quality.
TL,DR a 4670K is absolutely fine, unless you go completely nuts and decide all games must run Ultra.
