AMD Radeon RX 590 / Core i7-8700K @ 3.70GHz

It is clear that the RX 590 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 590 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. It is worth noting that the RX 590 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX 590 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti / Core i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz

It is worth noting that the GTX 980 Ti is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX 980 Ti 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like GTX 980 Ti requires careful thought. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2015 .

AMD Radeon R9 Nano / Core i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz

At 1440p, R9 Nano can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like R9 Nano requires careful thought. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 Nano can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
