Can I help you with a video card?
Hi thanks i just have a question
should i buy a gtx 970 instead of like an r9 390 or something just because i am able to get shadow play on a nvidia card? im looking to record btw
Spencer J.
i would go with the 970, not only do you get shadow play, but nvidia is more efficient, much lower power usage so lower heat generation, and longer life span
Alright thanks. Another question i have is im looking to get an i7 4690k and a gtx 970 with all the other components a computer needs, do you think a 500w power supply is enough power? i know the 970 is really efficient power wise
Spencer J.
Yep, the 500W will do fine
Alright sweet. Will the system im trying to build bottleneck because of a somewhat decent hard drive
Spencer J.
No, Hard drive has little effect on performance, and unless it is defective, or going bad it will not hinder performance
Alright Thanks, have a nice day man. :-)
Spencer J.
thanks, you too!
