Questions and Answers

  • Question: So right now I have a gtx 950 and I want to upgrade to a r9 380x used for 300 leva which is near 150 euros but I saw the gtx 1050 ti costs the same like the r9 380x but its new.Both of them are kinda the same on gaming performance on some guys higher for the 1050ti on some games lower and on some the same on average fps I saw in youtube.I would like to stream league of legends and csgo for fun.My rig is i7 4770k 8 gb ram 1tb hdd mobo h81m-s2pv 600w cooler master atx psu

    Answer: Either would suit your needs based on the games you mentioned. The R9 380X will offer better performance, but it will also draw more power.

  • Question: Ok so i recently just purchased the Powercolor r9 380x 4gb yesterday for 0. Should I return it and wait for the rx 480/other new 0 cards coming out? Thanks!!

    Answer: If you can return it and get your money back, then you should. The rx 480 is meant to be better than an R9 390 (maybe even the 390x), uses far less power and is a bargain at 0 for the 4gb and around 0 for the 8gb.

  • Question: Sapphire tri-x R9 290x 4 gb 217$

    Xfx R9 380x 4 gb 235$

    Xfx rx 480 8 gb 300$

    I have i7 4790 non k
    And 650 watt corsair psu

    Answer: RX 480 reference has a slight voltage problem on released and currently already rectified with the latest driver. It can no longer be called a problem.

    Yes, 290X was and still quite a heater. But AIB's solution proves sufficient to handle it. Just don't get reference design of it, and you'll be fine.

    Power draw is another talk entirely.

  • Question: Hello everyone!

    So, i'm in the market for another gpu but already have a Sapphire Nitro r9 380x. I play mostly Fallout 4, Overwatch, the Witcher 3, and Assassin's Creed: Syndicate.

    My question is two-fold. Has crossfire improved on these titles since the r9 380x's release? and, is it worth it to upgrade to the rx 480 and skip crossfiring another r9 380x?

    I'd be saving about 50 bucks if I went with a used r9 380x vs a new rx 480. Did a little research already but haven't found any benchmark pitting my current gpu in crossfire vs a single rx 480.

    I'd appreciate any insight y'all could give me and thank you for your time in reading this post.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I've recently switch from 1080p to 1440p to Alleviate cpu bottleneck. Here are my specs:

    fx 8300 @ 4GHz (25-35c idle, 40-55c load, socket temp range from 30-55c)
    Corsair H100i GTX AIO watercooler
    Asus m5a99fx pro r2.0
    16Gb 1600MHz DDR3
    Rosewill Lightning-3000 PSU

    Answer: Then you should DEFINITELY get an RX 480 8GB. There's also a promotion where you get the DOOM game code if you buy an RX 480 going around, so I would buy quick.

  • Question: I have been slowly bumping my budget up on my gpu. I was hoping not to spend anything over 200CAD. I was wondering if I should get an r9 380x (refurbished) at 179 or an Rx 480 at 229. I'm not strictly team red or green and I'm open to other ideas. I do however want a graphics card with a 6pin (so not a 1050ti) that can run off 500w. I plan on running games at 1440p so 4gb cards would be better and I would like the card to last a few years. Also if newegg refurbished reliable?

    Answer: your better with the rx 480 with fulll warranty usualy refurbished have only 90 days to 1 year warranty depending on parts you buy .
