Computer GPU Help
Posted 28 February 2013 - 06:21 PM
so recently i've been contemplating finally adding a proper GPU (Graphics/Video Card) into my computer. Now, i don't exactly game heavily, but that may just have been because i could never really run anything efficiently I bought SC2, quit because in large macro fights my FPS would go to like 1 and yeah, it was pretty bad.
I've decided upon getting the 7770, and no i will not go the nVidia route or buy any other card. I'm just simply asking which brand would be the best choice. (Unless you find a card that's legit better and worth the price..)
PSU: 450 W
Price: $100 -$130
These are the two i'm thinking about
I've read up on some reviews and the Gigabyte one seems to die and not work for a lot of people, so hesitant on the buy.. But overall i've heard theyre a better company and such.
Any help would be good! Thanks

Go on NCix or a-power website.
Write down a few video cards in your price range (NCix is easier because they have a "most sold top 10 list".)
Then google x versus y benchmark tests.
See what outperforms what.
The technology is all fairly caught up. 10 or so years ago there was always a clear winner. Now it's hard to make a bad choice with any hardware. They all also carry a one year warranty... I've had several video cards. Only one crapped out on me, and its because I always overclock all my hardware. Keep it to stock and do a little research and you'll be gold.
