Hi there,
I am looking for a good price/performance gpu for my first pc build.
My mobo will be the Asus Crosshair v Formula Z which i got for a really good price.
My cpu will most likely be the Amd Fx 8350
Now, for my Gpu I am thinking of purchasing the Amd r9 280x. Will this be a good Gpu for the money?
Please note that I am not going to play all the new titles such as "Witcher 3" (at least for the moment) and even if I were to play them, I wouldn't play them at ultra settings.
Thanks for reading,
Have a nice day
:)
