This would be a good option - it will handle all those games on Ultra (not sure about C3 though).

is the extra GB of memory really worth the lack in speed and worse cooler?

Not unless you are playing on more then one monitor and or at a higher resolution. 2gb is enough considering it is GDDR5 which believe it or not is blazing fast next gen memory.

I'm only planning one 1080p monitor, by the time 4K is affordable I'm sure to have upgraded my graphics card

A 270x or the 7950 would be about the same, but if you can stretch the budget, you can go for a 7970.

Dude I have been trying to clone my laptop's OS without much success, have you been able to transfer OS's?

Not clone it simply use the key on the bottom of it, I have a 64bit windows pc from another pc in the house

I suggest you get a GTX 670(Asus) which is $200 after rebate(right now) and is a beast of a GPU.

well i don't know current price of a gtx670 but lets say it is normally 250$ well you pay 250$ then on your receipt it tells you how to get a rebate and what to do and then they will send you 50$ back

might be US thing then but well since 2/3 of the games you included are BF i would say get a R9 270 or 270x since BF4 is optimized for amd and mantle update is in dec

only problem being that the R9270 even the R9270x is that they are both slower and don't have as good coolers, also the GTX 760(hawk) can do 3 way sli which I will be looking into around summer time

Sort
