    bit late but MSI has their 970 on offer

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GTX-970-...ds=msi+gtx+970

    If you live somewhere without VAT this gives you a 4gb 970 for 220

    My 390X recommends 750w+ PSU, but I'm running a 600w. How important is it that I upgrade my PSU?

    Further, what wattage do I need?

    i7 4790K (1150)
    Asus Z97-E mobo
    AMD R9 390X
    128gb Crucial 6gb/s SSD
    240gb PNY 500mb/s SSD
    Seagate 2tb HDD
    16gb RAM

    I can't find the amp requirements for my 390x. Looks like my CX600M outputs 46A on the +12V

    They don't have the 390X listed in their GPUs.

    But it's just a lower-power 290x. So use the 290x and if that's fine, you're fine.

    As Zekk pointed out its basically a 290x; which it shows as needing ~460watts. so Your 600 should be sufficient.

    The guys with the 390x, how you finding it?

    Looking to build a new much need comp next month and the Saphire 390x Tri-X is about a $100 cheaper than the 980 over here. There's also a sale on some 1440p freesync monitors at the local shop so there's some nice synergy there in terms of money saved. Could a 390x run something like the Witcher on good settings at 1440p (27")?

    How's the heat on the card?

    It's basically a higher clocked 290x. It'll be slightly slower to trading blows with a stock 980, while taking more power and generating more heat. 100 cheaper I'd go with the 390x personally, should still be fine at 1440p

    I'm loving mine. Been running Arma 3 overpoch with near max graphics (AA @4x) windowed and streaming with obs at 60 fps. (steam is 30fps). I am running at 1080p.

    So far I've seen it get up to 65C with its fan only running at 40%, I'm not sure what it would take to get it running at 100% :u

    I have aftermarked 780ti, which is kinda on the level with stock 980, with good settings at 1440 I have 35-55 fps (most stupid postprocessings are off).

    Interesting, thanks for the advice. Will most likely go for it unless a sale occurs in the next month or so or there is a big price drop across the board allowing me to step up to something better (bloody unlikely).

    Need a card for around 200 that will (i) play witcher 3 with reasonably good fps at 1920*1080, (ii) be silent in non-intensive use, and (iii) fit into a relatively small space (I currently have a radeon 5850 and it's a bit of a squeeze). Wat buy?

    Is it worth upgrading from a 770 2gb to a 970 4gb if I'm going to be playing at 1080p?
