Hi,

Im wondering if anyone would have any advice on which graphics cards would suit my system, my spec is this:

ASRock X79 Extreme4 Motherboard. Intel Core i7-3820 LGA2011 Processor. GX 750W Bronze Power Supply.

I have been told to look for a grahics card with a spec of at least 670 but other than that i have no real clue what im looking for, also preferably Geforce also. I have a budget of £300-£400. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I use this card http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-evga-gtx-680-sc-signature-28nm-pcie-30-6208mhz-gddr5-gpu-1084mhz-boost-1150mhz-cores-1536-2x-dl-, and can play ANY game at max settings , and most in 3D at max too . I only use one monitor , so I cant say how well it would perform in a multi monitor system , but I would imagine that it would happily cope with two , and probably three at lower settings .

I have a GTX 670 and this card is only a little slower than the GTX 680, the 680 is on average 3-5% faster and does not justify it's high price.You are only looking at around 3-4 frames per second increase.

Both cards will suit your needs and your only choice is whether the you feel the 680 justifies it's high price.

Compare.
