Hi. I recently built a PC and I still can't make my decision on the VGA cards. My specs are-
Intel Core i7-7700 3.6Ghz
ASUS STRIX Z270F Gaming Motherboard
G-Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4 2800MHz RAM
Thermaltake TR2 80Plus 550W PSU

So assuming these components won't be a problem while gaming, which VGA card should I buy. Nvidia GTX 1050Ti or AMD R9 380 4GB. Hope to get help soon. Been waiting for a week and can't decide. You guys are my last hope. :P

Why is that? Is something wrong with the build?

A non-k processor with a unlocked motherboard.

I wish people just ask for some opinion before making a huge purchase like that.

Hmm. Well I asked a guy and he said nothing about it. I asked if its better for 7700k but he said that it's not necessary so I went with this. The price difference wasn't much higher either ffs. -_- Now i am annoyed. I just found out about this site 2 days ago so i had no idea.

Don't worry about it now, It's a good build and will serve you well :)

What is your budget for the GPU?

For Gaming or non Gaming buying a Z270 may be a kill with the i7 processor still If u think it has better features then fine now that u hv bought nothing can be done, but had u gone with B or H series u could hv had a 1060 vga for the same money u spent.

This is what he was trying 2 tell in his style of lang.

However if u plan to do Video editing rendering then this is fine.

Yes I am enjoying the build so far. Well i think i can go max 35k since i spent more on RAM without realizing that RAM prices have gone up. I plan on brand new 1050ti and if not I can settle with a second hand GPU i guess.

Hmm yes nothing can be undone and what he said makes more sense to me now. Would have had a higher budget for GPU then. This is my first build so I am not experienced in it sadly. Yes I plan on editing and gaming too.

Yeah I also didn't have much idea when I bought my first PC. Thankfully I found this site before and bought a balanced PC that served me well for 5+ years.

Anyway you have a good PC, that extra money spent on MB could have been used for GPU as other people mentioned.

You can get this 970, have 2 years warranty left also

But I suggest getting a extra 5k and going with 1060 3GB

True that I should have done more research. The 1060 is better than 970 right and are u sure the 1060 is only 5k more? If that is the case I am going 1060 all day long.

I took the price Palit Geforce GTX 1060 Dual 3GB in redline pricelist. Dont know if they still have those. Otherwise go with the 970. Think its more powerful than a 1050ti.

But always do your own research before buying, dont rely only on other's opinion.

I see Palit are cheap. But is the brand good or will it get damaged sooner than other brands. Hmm ya i checked and it is indeed more powerful than 1050ti. So is the R9 380 not good then? If not I may go for 970 or 1060 if i cant save the money soon lol.

here is a link to the best source when it comes to get h/w. for this instance this is there GPU hierarchy.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gpu-hierarchy,4388.html

if you are going for 970 (which is btw is a very good card that only lacks DX12 support and can handle all AAA games @ FHD resolution )its on the 4th row. your PSU is more than enough for this card so you are fully covered. what i don't know is that who is selling a GTX 970 with 3 years of warranty among the local vendors.
i7 4770, EVGA GTX 970, 2Gb*4 DDR3 ram, Creative X-fi fatality champion pro sound card, Asus Z97-PRO GAMER , WD 1TB HD, OCZ agility3 90Gb SSD, OCZ Arc 100 240gb SSD, cooler master elite 430 enclosure, Logitech Z5500 sound system, Samsung TOC 24" LCD,Corsair STRAFE RGB MX RED key board, Logitec G502 protius core mouse.

Hmm i see i got a lot of replies saying 970 so I am going for it but u said lack of DirectX12 support. Does that affect gaming in any way. And if so by how much, is it in terms of FPS or gameplay overall?
