Ryan R.
welkcome to newegg! can i help you with video cards today?
Howdy, trying to decide about a gtx 970 card.
Ryan R.
sure! whats holding you back from it?
Do mainly BF4 and ARK at 1080p. Thinking about getting a 1440 monitor and just don't want buyers remorse.
Ryan R.
for 1440 i wouldent get the 970
you will get performance loss,
there are only 2 graphics cards from Nvidia that properly support 4k
980 Ti and the expensive one?
Ryan R.
yeah the 980Ti and the Titan
with the 970 you will get Ultra, in 4k you will get medium
ok, not going 1440 then. Before I was looking at R9 390 ( I think) didn't like AMD using so much more power
Should I be looking at gtx 980 or an AMD card?
Ryan R.
for just 1080?
yep
Ryan R.
hmmmm
My friend had the 970 in her computer and said she was getting poor performance in the new black ops, then she switched to the 390 and says she has no issues
personally i stick with Nvidia, so i would go 980 in your case
ok, occassionally there is a refurb 980 for great price. Any reason to stay away from refurb on that?
Ryan R.
For big items like graphics cards, i stick away from refurb, just because i have noidea what failed on it before
ok, thanks for your help!
