Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 280X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "WindForce", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 850MHz to 1000MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1100MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card offers the same performance a GeForce GTX 770 does.

Someone wanted to swap me this for my gtx 960.I did so and I must say much better performance but at the cost of power consumption and heat which is not a problem to me.

Sorry for late response, your I5 760 should be able to keep up with this card, but consider this as your CPU's last friend. When you upgrade again from this R9 280x you should say goodbye to your CPU also.

Man, I think fx-8120 will handle r9 280x nicely as fx-8120 has 9 GD Rating whereas r9 280x has 10GD Rating.

550w is enough, make sure the 12V rails have a combined output of atleast 40A
