  1. Budget?
  2. It depends on your budget, I would recommend a GTX 980ti (best performance) if you have a high budget, GTX 970 (good performance) for a lower budget, and R9 380 (okay performance) for a value budget.
  3. I wouldn't go higher than a 970 or 390. The FX8350 with it's weak cores is becoming more and more a limiting factor, in some CPU heavy games even a 970 can be left waiting for the CPU to keep up. Technically any GPU will work and high end GPU's may work very well in games that are not as cpu dependent
  4. Agreed with sizzling here, but depends your resolution.

    If he intends to play graphically demanding games that are not all that tasking of the CPU, then maybe a 980? But I agree, a 980ti is a little much for an 8350, whoops
  6. Thank u guys for the replying
    My Budget its 200 -300 usd .
    I was thinking of this ine
    Sapphire Radeon NITRO R9 380 4GB GDDR5 DVI-I / DVI-D / HDMI / DP Dual-X OC Version
    Or the 2gb one.
    I appreciate the prompt response guys . You People Rock!!
  7. That will do fine, although it doesn't look like the heaviest cooler I've seen on a 380, so I'm not sure how well it will overclock... But if you're just going to use it at the settings it comes with then it'll be fine
  8. Best answer
    If you're playing @ 1080, 4GB will help (a lot), for lower resolutions, 2GB.
  9. Great . I will go with that gpu for now. I got a corsiar h60 I ll be doing light oc on the CPU. Also, if and when I overclock do you suggest direct air over the VmR north and south bridges or the ambient temp its fine? Since I will use the H60
    It will be placed in a corsair carbide 300r . With 2 120mm side panel fans plus 2 extra 120mm fans with a (Front /side intake) rear top exhaust.
