My wife recently won an HP Spectre 32" 4k monitor and suddently had a renewed interest in PC gaming and wanted/needed a better video card to enhance gameplay. I haven't been in the market for a GPU for a few years so I've been out of the loop as to which cards offer the best price/performance ratio. While comparing specs and prices, this one looked like a great value. It doesn't have the performance of an R9 but it does have 4GB of DDR5 and a 256-bit bus. All of the other cards I saw in this price range were 128-bit and 2GB. I've never done CrossfireX before but may order another card and give it a try.

The price is $119.99 - $20 MIR. The product page says $3.99 shipping but I saw no shipping charge when I checked out and or course there is free shipping with ShopRunner and I believe Newegg Premier.

Good deal. I would get this if I wasn't already saving up for a Rx480

Good budget gaming card. I believe this even tops the new Rx-460

4390 (R7 370) vs 5241. The other one seems better.

Does this comparison reflect the 4GB 256-bit R7 370? When I was looking at the benchmark information and comparisons, it seemed that all the comparisons were for 2GB R7's. The GTX 950 has a better engine, but does the extra VRAM and 256-bit bus give the R7 any advantage?

I dont think this is a viable 4k card, but grats on the monitor!

LINK [tomshardware.com] - the 370 this review uses has the 256 bit bus but only 2gb of RAM, so this powercolor is probably a little faster, but probably not enough to make it a better overall card than the GTX 950. LINK to expired $90 GTX 950 deal.

yeah I have to agree, you won't be doing any real gaming in 4k with this card.

If you are looking strictly @ synth bench numbers, the GTX950 seems better, but look at this one as well:

Also, from here: http://www.tomshardware.com/revie...,4388.html they look to be on the same level!

Could this be paired with an Asus strix r7 370? Asus z170-a mobo

Thanks- I know this card won't do 4k but we really needed a
"budget" card and this one should be a huge upgrade from the 1GB DDR3 Radeon HD 5450 or whatever it is that is currently in her desktop. I need to do more research to see if 2 of these cards in CrossfireX is worthwhile. Also, my wife is just playing The Sims and Skyrim, so FPS isn't a big issue so maybe this card will be adequate.

This GTX 950 is significantly faster in this price range and crossfiring two of these will give you awful performance compared to an Rx 480 or GTX 1060 for $200.

BTW you aren't finding many cards with more than 2gb of memory in this price range as it is a meaningless gimmick to throw extra memory on cards that are too weak to handle settings/games that would use that much memory.
