What would you do? I'm still planning, it will be in weeks from now, but I'm not sure what to do:
A) get an APU and live with it B) get an APU and crossfire an R7 250 C) get a CPU or APU and use my dedicated R7 260X 2gb D) get CPU or APU with a better card than the R7 260X E) CPU with something better than R7 260X F) ...find another R7 260X 2gb to crossfire
I don't mind buying refurb or open box. Used from local ads, not so much... Could do but can be tricky with expert liars.
if I go with option E) I want a GPU that has 4gb of vram and that runs DX12/Mantle. I want to play BF4 at max on a 1080p display without having to tune down anything. While I say that I tink BF4 runs on DX11/Mantle.
So I guess R9 200 could do but I figure sometimes it's easier to find R9 300 since they probably don't make R9 200 anymore. Even on refurbished it's hard to find them.
