Thread is going a bit astray (my fault tbh) but AMD have really thrown the cat amongst the pigeons with the announcement of their 4 series graphic cards last night.

They've announced the Radeon 480 which at the moment tech geeks are speculating offers performance on par with an nVidia 980.

The really interesting bit? AMD have priced it at $199.

AMD are insisting two of them running in crossfire mode outperform the nVidia 1080. Crossfire price is unconfirmed but less than $500.

That's amazing value if it does go toe to toe with either of the above. No propers benchmarks until June 29th though. Fucking NDA's. There is a 3DMark one however, that's the 480 between the 980 and R9 Fury.

Why Don?

So what did you decide on Poop?

Finally managed to get an order in for something that will fit my case.

Gone for the MSI Aero 1070...380.

Still waiting for the 480 benchmarks. They'll probably leak this week. If it really is as good as the hype suggests (which it probably won't be tbh) I'll get a crossfire setup. It's the AMD Vega card that is the really intriguing one though. It'll go toe to toe with the 1070 and maybe 80, but October is the earliest we'll see anything of it.

Still more than likely going to get the 1070 but I'll doubtless do something stupid like buy the 1080 at the last moment for 800 instead. Complete overkill as my monitor has a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200.

Here's my shopping list as of now. Been so long since I upgraded I need a new everything

Have you ever run crossfire? I've read that it's nasty.

Rest of your list looks good, I assume you will be over clocking that cpu?

I'll try overclocking it to 5ghz for teh lolz. Might need a better cooler, a dozen case fans and bucket of ice for that though.

Haven't read up too much about crossfire. I know it has a chequered twitchy history though. Doesn't like openGL either.

I'll see.

I used to have a pair of HD 4780's in crossfire.... shit, Half life 2 ran worse and fog appeared as a grey wall.
Went with gtx560ti in sli and it was like shit off a shovel, proper power rig back then. .. I'll never go for ATI's " bang per buck" bullshit again.
Anyway... Inno3D oc 1080 on its way because I'm a massive kit Queen with an inexplicably good credit score.

Fucking LOVE this game.

The 1060 is out now and looks a poor buy compared to the 480.

No way you need a 1080 for this poop.

Just get a 1070 or 480.
