r9 280x 3 GB or 960 2GB


Wise Old Owl
Really confused between these two . I can get second hand r9 280x or new 960 at same price . 960 consumes less power but 2 GB VRAM is really bugging me . I am using 7850 2GB and can see the VRAM limitation in many games . Which one will be better?

config : Intel i3 2120
Amd 7850 2GB

R9 280x might be bottlenecked by your cpu. So 960 is a better choice imo. But yeah 2gb is a concern for sure.
Even gtx 970 will be bottlenecked by your cpu.
