I to be always really thorough on my research prior to a big purchase, yet this time I uncovered near no information on the AMD Radeon™ R9 M470X GPU through 2 GB GDDR5 option I get here in Ireland.

You are watching: Amd radeon™ r9 m470x gpu with 2 gb gddr5

My question, then, is: is the a worthwhile bump for someone coming from a FIFA-machine (Ps3) and for now only interested in not so quick paced pc games? i own and also play only four games: cm 01/02, age of realms III, Civ V and also Cities: Skylines.

Any input will certainly be very appreciated. I desire to do a decision now so ns can acquire the point by Friday, when the mam is walking away because that a week and also I'll have time to discover my method into pc gaming.

Thank you.

If you go for the i5/960, you have actually the rather pricey alternative of buying and also using the Amplifier come house exterior GPU upgrades in the future.

So if you favor the PC and also think you might want to upgrade it in a couple of years, spend much more now because that the much better GPU.
