Michael Bennett says:

Intel HD Graphics 4000 🙁

DJ Hots says:

So for 1080p 144hz gaming which card would be best? I really just want a 1070, but try and find one for under 400 bucks. Or should I wait for the GPU market to stabilize?

Marc Anjeh says:

I’m using the RX 580 Gaming 8gb

It took me a few seconds to realize that he meant ‘pound’ as in the currency and not the weight in the beginning haha

Jeremiah Hurst says:

So I would like to buy the rx 580 but I’m having trouble finding where to buy it. I am kinda new to this so i don’t really know where to look, if you could help I would greatly appreciate it.

Star SpekleZ says:

700 Pounds? Thats a heavy GPU

chuckolatte says:

Didn’t mention ultrawide suggestions…..

matt matthew says:

This is terrible advice. Buy the most expensive card, you can afford, unless your gaming at 720p. There are games that drop below 30fps with a 1080 at 1080p, such as GTA V. there are no single 4k cards, right now/ as of sept 2017 there are no 4k cards, if you want 60FPS and above at 4k, for a year, two 1080s or two 1080 TIs would be a good option, or even two titans x pascals, but bang for your buck wise, titan isn’t always the best for price to performance. Anyway some of the advice in the video was good though, like keep in mind the watts of your PSU/ Power Supply Unit, and bottle necking/ the whole computer works together, you need a good CPU, and you need adaquite RAM/ Random Access Memory/ your computers only as strong as its weakest link. A 1070 isn’t terrible for 1080p gaming, but don’t expect to never hit or drop below 30FPS, because a 1080 will drop below 60FPS at times, and it will hit 30FPS at times, like I said to prevent this you need two cards, obviously you can lower settings and tweak things and get a good experience, it will be better than console graphics wise regardless. Also Vulcan may help with this ome as well, but regardless, if you want your machine to last for a while, buy the best you can when your in the market for a graphics card or any other component, depending on what your going to use your computer for, but I wouldnt be suprised if games started needing/utilizing 5cores here soon, and 6cores not long after. Anyway I know this was allot, but I don’t want people to have false expectations/hopes.
