AMD Radeon RX 580 / Core i7-7700K

At 1440p, RX 580 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 580 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 580 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the RX 580 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. View Current Price List

AMD Radeon R9 FURY X / Core i7-4790K

It is worth noting that the R9 FURY X is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With regards to max load temperature, the R9 FURY X 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like R9 FURY X requires careful thought. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 FURY X can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. View Current Price List
