Hello,

I want to buy a PC for gaming and I don't know what should I choose between:

1. http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/gigabyte/geforce-gtx-760-oc-windforce-3x-2gb-ddr5-256-bit/

2. http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/sapphire/radeon-r9-280-dual-x-oc-with-boost-3gb-ddr5-384-bit/


I am sorry if I posted in the wrong section.

It also depends on what do you plan in future. Do you plan go SLI/crossfire later? Or perhaps monitor with g-sync or free-sync? If answer is no to both question, the choice does not really matter - the difference is so small, it comes down to personal preference of brand.

I am assuming most users using this grade of card will be running at 1080p, where 2gb is just fine.

On an average of 1080p games the 960 matches the 285

It also uses considerably less power, and therefore creates a lot less heat. Overclocked the performance boosts considerably.

Also, regarding your statement that 2gb of vram is too low for 1080p is not true. I use a overclocked 2gb 680 at 1440p just fine, you simply have to be sensible with graphical settings.
