I've been a console man all of my life (don't hold that against me), but lately I've been pressured into joining the PC master race.

I don't anything about GPUs, but a bit of research has led me to believe that the above cards should be a good starting point.

If anyone has one they are looking to sell, possibly upgrade to a 980, then please let me know.

Thanks

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Ive got an AMD R9 270 2gb card that I was looking to sell because I was upgrading to a GTX970 in the near future. Let me know if you would be interested in this card at $180?

Thanks for the reply. I'm assuming it's a similar card to the gtx ones, I'll have a look?

I forgot to ask in my original post if either of the cards will work OK on a htpc, 50 inch TV?

The GTX960 is definitely better than the R9 270 (by about 10-15%). 

 

I am currently using this card to run 2 monitors + a tv as well. It has HDMI output so should not be an issue. I have not overclocked this card or anything (im not comfortable doing all that). 

 

The 950 is a newer card (i think released a couple of months ago). It should be similar in performance to the R9 270 (i havent looked at this card in depth so cant confirm).

Actually, what did you want to do? You mentioned you want to run a HTPC. If thats the case, all of these cards are really powerful and more than enough to run that. A lower powered card is sufficient (i have an older gen AMD card in my HTPC which I was going to put on trademe at $90). But all depends on what you need to do. If its for some gaming, then you should definitely be looking at something like the R9 270 or the GTX 950, 960 etc. If just running a HTPC, then you might want to consider a cheaper lower end card.

Oops I'm sorry, I forgot to mention it's for some gaming, cod and battlefield. Just wanted to check that they would be good enough for 1080 on a big TV, rather than a monitor.

Thanks

Great. thats all good then. I have played COD Ghosts with this card without any issues. Recently been playing fifa on PC without any issues either. I havent got battlefield so cant give any personal experience. 

 

And yes it should be fine for 1080p - I am currently running a 1440p and 1080p dual monitor setup
