I need a new graphics card to enable my computer play the latest games like COD. My options are the ATI Radeon R9 270X, ATI Dual-X R9 270X and the R9 270X Gaming 4GB. Can you help me choose by giving the advantages of each?
Choosing a graphics card for my computer
ATI Radeon is a good choice as it has lots of advantages over other graphics cards. In order to have the best performance, you should consider your PC hardware and its capability.
There’s a choice of PCIe version. Check your motherboard model from the Command Prompt. Start Command Prompt, run “wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber” command (without quotes). Check your motherboard specs on the web.
If your PCIe is 3.0, then all graphics cards are compatible with you. If not, then you should consider using AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics cards.
If your budget is of high range, CrossFireX is recommended. Otherwise, get any R9 series card. If you’re a developer or graphics designer, then buy the R9 4GB series card.
