Question about GeForce 600 Series and GPUs in general
So I'm building a new rig and not sure which GPU to buy.
Was originally aiming for the 680 but it seems more suited more towards the enthusiast and fully future proof rather than suit my needs.
I'm looking to build a rig to play most games on high to ultra for this year in specific. I'm mostly playing Planetside 2 which is very CPU intensive (I'm going for the i5 3570k, thoughts?) but I would also love to try BF3, Dishonored, Bioshock: Infinite, DmC: Devil May Cry, and a bunch of other titles. I think the 680/690 are a bit overkill but what do you guys think?
Which is the best bang for the buck 600 series? What do you think of the 660? Will it run the mentioned games on a reasonably high setting? Does it have all the "modern" features? (DX11 etc.)
Also when searching for GPU's I get a bunch of different manufacturers. Are there ones better than the others or is it personal preference? Are there ones considered the "best" out of the bunch?
