  4. You're such a lazy person.
    You can do all that arranging yourself just by looking at hierarchy chart.

  5. You can actually compare all of the graphics cards you just listed at http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/. There is a compare button in the upper right hand corner of the page.

  7. I personally wouldn't go by that. Why suggesting using an older card instead of a newer card i will never understand. This is the worst time to buy a graphics card with all those retard miners buying them all up burning them out than selling them on ebay so i wouldnt buy used card. I would simply decide what you can afford either amd or nvidia doesnt matter. I would suggest taking what cards you can afford going over to you tube and i am 99.9% sure you will find someone benchmarking a bunch of games and you can see first hand what the card can do. I take it your not too experianced because your asking for help. The proof is in the pudding not a bunch of graphs from a bunch of noobers online
