Thanks for reply and overall concern. I will read up that reddit post soon. happy building to you!

fair enough.

seems like there is a market then for harnesses that quickly convert PSU-brand-pin-layout to universal pin-layouts, without any cabling in between. then generic cables of any length could be used.

Would be interested to hear where in your experience you got the knowledge, not denying you have it, just if you have an anecdote...

but 2 things about your first sentence:

1) the sentence does not say 'not' compatible with others, or 'only' compatible with Strider. just says it is compatible with its own PSU brand. and note the box image actually has an asterisk saying go to website for additional compatible models.

2) it is a frequent tactic across many industries to claim your add-on product is only compatible with your own brand, when in reality, its standard.

indeed, and that is what i will probably go with - to get in a good spot for future 1440 gaming w/o spending 980 or 980ti money

i am in a similar boat as OP, but the consecutive recommendation of 390, 970, or 980Ti involves a big leap in price to the 980Ti. How can the decision be to either spend $300 or $500 but nothing in-between?

I think I get your point. Comparisons on output (Userbenchmark, MRender test) are the only way to compare. Like 0-60 vs. Engine size in cars (although as an ME I would make a point that Torque / Weight stats could inform a lot about 0-60 contests).

aiighty. what about them tips off that this is the proper comparison? honestly curious

Ok. I am listening. Can you start with why you can't compare different brands by their specs? Its a normal practice in other disciplines, and maybe in this one (see pcpartpicker.com sorting; Tom's Hardware June 2015 buying guide), but I would be honestly interested to hear why you say it is N/A to GPUs and how best to compare then.

I also bought a 7850 ~3 years ago, for $109. extremely pleased with it

interesting thread for me. I just bought a friend at 750ti, thinking it was on par with my old HD7850. But I am seeing good things about the R7 370 and wish i bought him that.

Actually for the R7 370, Wikip shows its specs are on par with the GTX 960, yet that card is so much more expensive and popular for builds. Anyone know why?

are the FX-83## and FX-63## both better gaming options than, lets say, an i3? I trying to find a reason to not simply buy an i5 for my next build.

can someone explain the buzz of the GTX960 to me? comparing specs from wikipedia (all I know how to do), seems like the R7 370 edges it out for the $$

how did you decide on your CPU? over an i3 or other AMD choice?
