  1. Any card that price is overkill for 1080p. I'd get a GTX 970.
  2. Best answer
    R9 390 if you're going AMD
    GTX 970 if you're going nVidia.

    They're between 290~330 if I recall correctly.
  3. ^ Agreed.

    For 1080p gaming a GTX 970 or R9 290 will max out just fine.
  4. not sure why people are recommending an R9 200 series when the 300 series is out

    Since the 300 series is barely any thing of an upgrade, if the 200 series cards can be found for a cheaper price you may get better price/performance from your purchase.

    Exactly.

    Just because the number is bigger does not automatically mean that it is better or more cost effective.
    For example a cheaper 280x is better then a 380 which is just a rebranded 285
