Hi

1) What are your system specifications? Give us full specs:
look at signature

2) What is your budget? 500 euro, new , nVidia or ATI, SINGLE (not crossfire or SLI)

3) For how long are you planning to have this new card? The foreseeable future (call it 4 years)

4) What will the new Video Card be used for?
pure gaming at least 1920x1080 max settings 60fps dx12, i should not have any problem with latest games, 2k or 4k only with super resolution or dsr.
Overclock to get more fps, not for benchmark, so the card must have good components resistant to heat and voltages, and good cooling system.

What should i get? r9 390 dead so can't stay with that...

Sorry bud, I thoughgt you were answering the above post. My bad!

Well, with 500€ you can go either GTX 1080 o(€550) or Vega 56 (€520).

GTX 1070 ti launches in a couple of weeks and will certainly be around €450/€500 with nearly the perfs of a GTX 1080.

What country do you live in?

Edit: you should start a new thread, this one is old, and I doubt many people will check it.

Edit 2: for mods, might be worth to "sticky" it, as it would be a source of info as it builds up...

I think pricing is much the same than in FRance, so what I wrote above works for you.

Edit: if you don't plan on upgrading your CPU+Mobo+ram anytime soon, you could save quite some cash by going GTX 1070 or AMD RX 480/5808GB.

Your FX is a [email protected] for anything above the 1070.

I currently have a R9 290x video card. I heard from a few people that a 980ti overclocked is on par with a 1080 at reference clocks... I am debating on upgrading to a new video card but don't want to break the bank as my current card plays everything exceptionally well... I NEVER play on ultra or high settings as its near impossible to be competitive with the graphics that high.

Budget is $350
