HI all

Question, is it pointless to buy a graphics card right now? I'm an okay gamer and I'm building a budget gaming rig with a r9 270.

Should I wait or get it now? The price for the Gigabyte r9 270 is 180$

Thanks for the help!

Well, the only way it would be a waste is if you don't like it. I don't see why you would wait if you have decided to get that model, and its not like a new line of AMD graphics cards are going to be released soon, the Rx series is their newest. The only reason you might have to wait is either the new Nvidia Maxwell line, which might not be released until very late this year, or a drop in the price, which is unlikely due to bitcoin mining inflation.

I haven't actually heard anything about the 750, but I haven't been looking into that stuff too much. If it is like what the 770 is, a tweaked 680, then it would have a little more power than a 660 and cost a little more as well. But that is 100% speculation on my part.

Yeah, I would get that, or maybe a 7870 GHz edition for around $20 more than has better overclocking potential and a little higher clock speeds, but they're pretty similar.
