    EVGA GTX 950 SSC 2GB vs. XFX AMD R9 380 4GB Best bang for the buck?

    GTX 950: 125$
    R9 380: 170$.
    Which one is the better deal, and is the extra 45$ actually worth it?
    I've watched countless videos, benchmarks, but just can't seem to decide.
    I'm running on a tight budget and I'm just a causual gamer. BF4, CSGO etc. Nothing too heavy. Which is the better deal?

    Go with a GTX 960 or a 970 if your budget allows it, if not go with the 380

    2GB cards are almost obsolete now, as games get more demanding.

    I own Radeon HD7970 3GB and that's what the 380 is, a rebadged Tahiti but with 4GB that can destroy GTX 960 and edge out GTX 770 anyday.

    At $170, it'd be a no brainer to not go with the 380, definitely worth the $45 premium! Not to mention it is around 30-35% faster.

    You're looking at the Saphire 380 right? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-730-_-Product

    Sell the Ashes of Singularity for like $15-25!

    Thank you for the detailed review. This is what I needed, but what about Nvidia's software features such as shadowplay and streaming with friends?

    You first stated that he should go with a 960 wut.

    @OP The 380 is a decent card. Defo the best bang for your buck.
