Im looking at upgrading from my Nvidea gtx 295 card, it has 2gb of video memory. I'm not really up to date on much of the new stuff. Any suggestions on a graphics card with dx11 support that would give me max on all games etc?
I 100% agree, it is also the cheaper option.
Nvidia want insane money for their cards and sometimes for a little fps... The 7970 3Gb or 6GB are sweet cards, I suggest it dude.
Nvidia cards are the same price as their AMD counterpart.
A 7990 is about £800-900 depending on the brand etc.
A 690 is about £750-850 depending on the brand etc.
So in a sense Nvidia is cheaper.
A 680 is around the £360-480 mark depending on brand, GDDR size etc.
A 7980 doesn't exist. So we have to look at the next AMD card, and thats a 7970 and that too is around £350-400, which doesn't match the capabilities of the 680.
But a 670 is around £290-360 again cheaper than its AMD counterpart.
So not sure what planet you are from to say Nvidia is insane prices :P
@OP - Try either the Geforce 660 or 670, either one of the 6 series cards can get you a free Assassin's Creed 3 also (if it is older stock for a lesser price you can still get Borderlands 2).

Thanks guys, so a 660/670 i can get them for a reasonably nice price $298 down the road from me. Is there any games at the moment which would warrant a new motherboard for some ddr3 ram?
I'd need a new motherboard aswell, but you reckon I may aswell upgrade the lot?
No need to go splashing out on a new motherboard, CPU, DDR if not needed.
