Switching from R9 290 to GTX! I need help picking the right Nvidia card

Recommended Posts

Good day everyone, 


 


 


Here is my system specification: 


 


MOBO: G1.Sniperz.97 


i7 4790K


GPU: AMD R9 290  :(


RAM: 16Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 16GB 2133MHz


it is working great with FSX and I am getting really smooth flying with PMDG777, however I decided to get the Steve's fixer for the DX10 and guess what! The AMD doesn't like DX10 at all!!! 

everyone said I need to switch my GPU to nVidia and that's my plan at the moment.

 

My question, which nVidia would be the best option for FSX with DX10 Steve's fixer installed or Sweetfx?

 

I saw many users comparing between GTX 970 and 980. There is almost 50% in price deference! So, what do you guys suggest? 

 

 

By the way, I play BF4 some time.

 

 

Best regards, 

 

 

Adel

I went with the MSI Geforce 980. No disappointment.

Which is better, getting 980 or 2 970's? I'm running one monitor.

Two 970's will not help you as FSX does not support SLI.

One 970 is enough for this old game, your i7 4790 is doing most of the work.

Thanks for the advice, I am still confused whether I go with 980 or 970  and what is the good brand Gygabite, MSI, or EVGA?

Adel I'm running an R290 with FSX  and Steve's Fixer and not seeing any problems.

What's happening with your setup?

Well, i have it set to max and if I set it to low 2x just like yours there should be no problems! But the AA is very low and the picture quality doesn't look good :(

 

What is your CFG and your AMD Catalyst settings?
