    Hey guys, I'm currently wanting to upgrade some components and i have a few questions,

    Here is my current Graphics card

    AMD radeon r9 200 series Sapphire 8GB




    I've been looking at this

    Is this much of an upgrade ?? I really want 3 monitors and just wondering if its worth investing in this graphics card

    Depends what you're doing with it.

    You can run 3 monitors off the shittest graphics cards (or even mix and match with onboard) but can't do much gaming on them.

    If all you want is to be able to run multiple monitors, you don't need to buy a GPU of that price.

    Yeah i'll be wanting to game a lot ; Is it worth upgrading to this one though?

    Is that graphics card even an upgrade from my current one?

    A massive one. You can look online to compare them as well. Assuming you have an R9 270X, this is the comparison.

    I would personally get a Nvidia card. GTX 1660 Ti is one okay option, RTX 2060 or RTX 2070 Super as well


    Working on a custom OSRS base for Dodian. I've chosen to keep it open source.

    Dodian is where my RSPS passion started, so I intend to keep it alive, even considering how dead it is.

    I went with a red devil XT5700 - Cheaper + it does near enough the same performance.
