Would use this card for my son's first rig that I am building. Specs are pretty similar to my current rig but I could use a more powerful card for him as I already busted all my budget markers for him. The rig will last him about 3-4 years just like my 2600K is coming to about 3.5 years now). He turned 10 this year and is into PC gaming.
He plays Minecraft, Goat Simulator, COD (without violence/blood option ), Lego Hobbit, Lego LOTR, NFS MW, and The Crew these days.
This card will complete his RIG .
ASUS Z97 Pro
8 GB G Skill Ares
250 GB Samsung 850 EVO
1 TB WD drive
ASUS VG278HE (handing him down my monitor to get a new one from ASUS; possibly ROG swift or may cheapen out to one of the Korean monitors)
... and some more peripherals from logitech mostly.
He will possibly jump up and down if he found out that he will get a more powerful card than myself
I have an emulator box i built for my family to play all of the "old" console games. It struggles with gamecube and ps1, and will not play anything newer. I'd love to replace the junk card I put in there with either or these.
