Q. visitor asked, I'm looking for a gpu for gaming

Chris C.
welcome to newegg how may i help you today?
I'm looking for a gpu for gaming
Chris C.
alright
I have a 6-core cpu and I'm looking for a gpu to go with it at about $200 or less
Chris C.
what is the motherboard you have?>
MB Asrock 970m pro3
Chris C.
ok
and radeon or nvidia gpu?
any
I'm ok with both
Chris C.
ok
im thinking we'd want to go with the r9 380x or the gtx 950
how expensive is each of those?
Chris C.
the r9 380x is around 200 - 230
the gtx 950 is around 170 -200
is spending the extra on the r9 worth it or is the gtx just as good?
Chris C.
the r9 380x is worth in my opinion but it isnt ground breaking so if you do want to keep it 200 or under i would suggest the 950
but if you can spend the extra 20 then the better card is the 380x
ok
thanks for your help
Chris C.
you do get about a average of 10 - 15 more frames with the 380x if that helps any
it does
Chris C.
great :-)
thanks, have a good day
