    How much max do you want to put in your graphics card?

    So I am really thinking about buying the msi gtx980 4gb gaming edition gpu, it  falls into my budget. Will it be able to run 4K if maxxed out  or is 4K even possible with it.If it is capable of 4K, I might just buy it and upgrade down the road if need be.

    $150-$175 canadian is what I was hoping to out into it. I have other things I need to put $ towards for my build. If the gtx 980 will work with 4K ,  I can live with it even if it  is not 100%

    Listen to what talamus and the others are explaining to you. If you can’t invest 50 Canadian dollars more for a super gtx 1660, drop the 4k and take the 980 for 1080p You will invest later when you can on a graphics card

    I definitely  want to follow the advice given to me here, I appreciate it. I didn’t know that a gtx 1660 would be another option and only $50 more. I’ll steer clear of the 980.

    Ok, I’ll start looking for one of those. I have located a few gtx 1070’s locally which might fall within what I can afford. Just waiting to hear back from the sellers. I assume the Gtx 1070 is better than the 1660 super or are they pretty equal?

    The 1070 and a little better if you can have it cheaper than the 1660 yes takes but if it is more expensive take the 1660 which will do very well for vpx

    Found another 1660 locally Msi ventus gaming x ,asking $290, Looking at the specs, it looks like the 1660 TX 1660 VENTUS XS 6G OC is better though because it has more FPS. Am I correct on that?

    Ok,sounds good. Thank you chucky87. I found a website which compares the two and the gaming x is marginally better but I am hoping I can get the 1660 ventus for $225 which I can live with.

    OC stands for overclocked from fabric. So, yes, it runs faster. At least now you’re looking at cards that should be able to run 4k on most tables, not only the example table.

    OK, thanks Thalamus. I appreciate all the information you have provided to my questions. I am new to all this, I understand now that I am better off to spend a bit more to get a card that will work properly.

    Does the warranty still apply if I didn’t buy it from a store? The guy said it’s new and that it was a display unit from a store .
