Hi guys! I'm in the process of ordering parts for my third build. So far I have gone for a Crosshair V formula z motherboard -my first build used an original crosshair and it is still amazing 7 years on!- with an FX8350 processor, a Zalman CNPS9700 CPU fan to keep it nice and cold and a level 10 case -because I made the mistake of buying a smallish case for my last build!
I already know I'm getting 16gb of RAM so the only problem I have now is picking the GPU. I want something that is quite powerful -can run current games at ultra- and gives a fair bit of future proofing, but I don't want to sell a kidney for a titan -I'm fine without being able to play Star Citizen on ultra! This has led me to the conclusion that I should go for a 4gb card and I had two in mind.
First I saw the Gigabyte AMD R9 270X OC (4GB, DDR5, PCI-E) -with 3 fans to keep it cold!- but then I saw the MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Gaming 4GB DDR5 Twin Frozer IV FAN PCI-E. The Nvidia is about £50 more, but I've always gone with Nvidia and don't really see the diffrence.
Which would be best, or are there better cards I could go for?
