    $220 budget. Need help deciding what to do with it

    Mainly, when I initially mentioned heat, I just meant having a cooler running device (like a videocard) vs a hotter running videocard, if both were similarly priced/performed close to the same, the cooler one would be seen as a bonus. I guess I didn't really go about wording that properly.

    $220 budget. Need help deciding what to do with it

    I'm starting to think maybe I should just up my budget, get a GTX 970 and maybe a smaller (120GB or so?) SSD.

    $220 budget. Need help deciding what to do with it

    I'm not hurting on space so much, but that's because I delete anything I'm not playing.

    $220 budget. Need help deciding what to do with it

    Heat really isn't a problem per say, it's just that if I could get something that ran cooler, it'd be a selling point. I've got a Hyper 212 Evo on my CPU with a push pull config, and 3 140mm fans, and a 120mm in the rear.

    $220 budget. Need help deciding what to do with it

    I guess right now, my main decisions are going to be either A) Sell 280X, get a GTX 970 or B) Buy a 2-3TB HDD and a 256GB Samsung SSD

    $220 budget. Need help deciding what to do with it

    So, I more or less have a budget of $220 right now free (Sold an MMO game account of mine, and the money now only resides in my paypal) Anyways, if you need to know my current PC, it's a 280X, 8GB of RAM, a 2500K overclocked to 4.5 Ghz, a 700W PSU, and a 1.5TB HDD. I game at 1080p/60Hz. As far...

    AMD responds to Hairworks, Gameworks and it's engagement with developers.

    If Nvidia "kills off" AMD, it's going to be because of AMD's poor general support. I mean, freaking seriously. They haven't released a non-Beta since last freaking year. They've only released one beta that actually really changed anything this year, crossfire support is outright abysmal for...

    AMD Catalyst 15.3 Beta Driver for Windows OS

    It's not that bad! It's a solid C+ or B- type game. Not worth $60, but if I had paid $10 for it, I wouldn't of been disappointed.

    AMD Catalyst 15. 2 Beta Driver - Update

    I'd be willing to bet $50 on that

    AMD Catalyst 15. 2 Beta Driver - Update

    That's.... actually really awesome. Kind of a mega-obtuse way to put it/perform it, but wow. I really didn't know that existed. Thanks! You have no idea how much that helps me. I want to give you a giant sack of thank yous.

    AMD Catalyst 15. 2 Beta Driver - Update

    Unless there's some magic option I'm not seeing, where? Show me, because I sure haven't found it.

    AMD Catalyst 15. 2 Beta Driver - Update

    Actually, you've been able to downsample manually with Nvidia's drivers for ages. Years upon years upon years and make custom resolutions. Again, for years and years and years. Doing the same two things on AMD requires CRU for custom resolutions (Which also, for whatever reason, breaks HDCP)...

    AMD Catalyst 15. 2 Beta Driver - Update

    Personally, for myself, I've been frustrated consistently and steadily since I switched over to AMD at the lack of very basic functions I've had since the mid 2000's (Probably earlier! but that's about when I switched seriously to PC gaming) like setting a custom resolution and downsampling...
