Ok, so I am building a new rig. Here are some important factors that you probably need to know. The cpu is an FX-8350. The PS is evga 850GQ 80 plus gold. The mobo is an msi 970 Gaming Pro carbon. The ram is 32 gig GSKILL Ares 1600 DDR3. My case is a ZALMAN H1 (pretty big and roomy). If i missed anything just ask please. I would like to know what would be a gaming type of video card I can Purchase. My budget is $200 - $300 of Course I would prefer closer to $200 but if you can make a case for the card Thats closer to $300 ...... Thanks!

Hello, first nice rig you have there :). for $200.00 I would consider the AMD RX 470. It's one heck of a nice card for the money and very capable of high settings in any new game and is a perfect 1080p card. Ultra settings in a few as well. Stepping up to $250.00-$300.00 we have the GTX 1060 and RX 480 which will give you higher settings on average and allow you to use 1440p with high-ultra settings (sometimes a mix of those) in most games. Right now you can find some super deals on RX 480's for around $220.00-$240.00 I would look hard at those.

Thanks for the Quick response Zone_86 and thanks for the compliment on my rig. I did start looking at some of the RX 480 cards but wasnt sure about if there were any particular ones that were better than others. For example do you see any flaws in this card? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137023  Thanks again.

That card should be stellar MSI has the best cooling system for GPU's on the maket with TwinFrozr. On bootup for the first microsecond they spin backwards and stop knocking off some dust particles and then spin back the other way. They also tend to run cooler than other brand GPU's because they use larger fans That is definitely the model I would pick :)

Cool, then thats what I will get.  Like I said, I have been looking around and just wanted some feedback about that card. Thanks Again.
