The Best 1080p GPU

Alright guys
I want to get myself a new GPU, probably buy it off eBay seeing as I can grab it cheaper than retail.
So what would be your recommendations for a 1080p single monitor card that will handle anything I throw at it?

Cheers

For 1080P I wont even suggest a 1080 card unless you plan to upgrade your monitor to at least a 1440p. It is a complete overkill.

For a 1080p screen I think a 1070 card is more than enough for you.

That being said, I dont think there is much difference between the 1080FE cards and the AIB cards that are now released, albeit a few fps increases. The benefit of the 1080FE (reference board) is that it will dump heat outside of your case via the cooling exhaust.

edit* I failed to read your post correctly.. My brain gets 1080p and 1080gpu mixed up

so based on what I have actually read correctly now, I would just wait for the NDA to be lifted on the RX 480 cards and see the reviews on this one. It is going to be extremely cheap compared to Nvidia and might be the best option for you.

Don't forget you can run AMD VSR (virtual super resolution) or Nvidia DSR (Dynamic super resolution) to increase the resolution above 1080p.

However to answer your question - Radeon RX 480 4gb

Personally wouldn't chance it with 4GB, Even some games now at 1080P can use a bit more than 4GB, Take Shadow of Mordor for example, Even at 1080P it can easily surpass 4GB and with the HD texture pack can use even upwards of 8GB.

It will be on sale the 29th mate from OCUK they already have the stock and the 8GB variant won't be that much more than the 4GB

I was thinking about getting 2 of them as I game at 1440p and have a freesync monitor but i'll wait for the reviews before I decide my next graphics card "it may well be the 1070" as for a 1080p monitor I would wait until you have chosen which graphics card to buy and go from there. It also depends on what size monitor you want as well for us to provide a recommendation for you

Gibbo from OCUK says he has over 100 in stock but they are only reference cards at launch no AIBS as of yet and not expected until mid to end of July
