Reopening this thread after, unsuccesfully, tried to get some info for a good Shader power single GPU Graphics Card. I said, in a fairly recent thread, that my primary plan is to buy a GTX 780 Ti, but if I can't find one for a decent price (under $300), I will look for R9 390 (if possible, the X version).
But here come the thoughts and some seen test. Thinking that I won't upgrade my PC for 2 years, starting from December this year, I need to make some good choices: I will need a Graphics Card with fast memory, a lot of memory (even tho' I have a 1360×768 Monitor) in 2018, I don't know if 3 GB will be enough and, of course, Shader power. I have seen some tests about the R9 390 running SEUS Ultra 10.2 at 30 FPS capped. Knowing that SEUS Ultra 10.2 is easier to run than Continuum Ultra, then the FPS on Continuum Ultra will be shame low, for that price point. So, here comes the question, again, what Graphics Card, with a single GPU, is the best for Shaders in a $300 budget, and, of course, some future proof? 780 Ti? R9 390? GTX 970? 980? Will the price of the GTX 980 Ti drop by Decmber this year?
