Isn't 290x more comparable to 780ti?

i was just going with overall models lol, that is in terms of reference cards, but in my own personal opinion, never buy a reference card.

Thanks Stephanie, that sure proves higher price is NOT necessarily higher performance. That really helps a lot. Makes no sense to spend more that necessary to achieve my objective of watching Blu-rays and the occasional flight simulator program.

I persist in my mention of the HD7750. Note its MIDDLE position in that performance list, and also the modest price.

Plus, it comes in both full-size and low-profile (with both low-profile and full-size brackets included in the box) versions.

Plus it is single-card wide, only using a single expansion slot and not requiring two adjacent slots (for added cooling or to house additional connector ports).

Plus, it uses considerably less electricity than higher-performing cards above it, BUT YOU DON'T NEED THAT SUPER-HIGH PERFORMANCE FROM THOSE OTHER CARDS FOR YOUR NEEDS!!

Think I am down to these two...

1)MSI N650TI-1GD5/V1 GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

2)GIGABYTE GV-R726XOC-1GD Radeon R7 260X 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

Both about the same price. Number two is 'butt ugly', but that aside; 'ennie, meenie, minie, moe' ?

1 is better in my opinion because AMD cards are pretty over priced.

Other way around Nvidia are the pricey ones. Imagine Nvidia like intel.

I thought they are getting more expensive because of being sold with bitcoins.
