Description

EDIT 1: Its 8GB (4*2GB 1333MHz) RAM, in quad channel. I forgot to manually add it...3 more times. Unfortunately I can only edit the part list with already listed parts so its gonna be 2GB forever now...

EDIT 2: Australia's date formatting is DD/MM/YY, so thats why the date was wrong when I input it manually...

Coming to you with another budget build! AAA 1440P gaming for 600AUD? YES PLEASE.

The used market is a goldmine! Obviously there are risks involved but so long as you know what you're doing and are asking the right questions, the headaches can be minimised.

Everything clean and repasted. The R9 Fury holds up to the RX590, which I feel is fine for its age.

  • SC2 1080p 1080p Max preset

  • 1% Low: 14.4
  • Avg: 70.1

Yes I am aware that I benchmarked in 1080p, but the connected monitor was only 1080p. The results indicate that 1440p would be handled without a sweat. Full details of testing and results here!

Welp. our formatting for dates is DD/MM/YY so it unfortunately didn't have that check when I entered the date manually :(

I was thinking of getting an r9 fury or fury nano, they're so cheap on the US used market and I know they're a gem of a card. What kind of temps are you getting on that sapphire card?

At 25C room temperature and a max 60% fan curve, I only get to 72C (inside the case). Download Sapphrie TRIXX for OCing, managing fan curves and power limits, that software is seriously underrepresented. IMO Sapphire make the best custom cards in AMD's family.

EDIT: Unfortunately, you can really only expect RX590 performance and the RX590 seems to OC better, so when each are at their best, the RX590 probably does slightly better.

The cheapest new rx 590 retails for around $250 USD while the cheapest used R9 fury can be found for around $150 USD if they're that close in performance that's a steal. Never had a sapphire card before but I've always wanted one. Thought the r9 290x vapor-x was a godly card but when reality kicked in and my price range was only $200 at the time I almost picked up a r9 270x toxic. Those coolers were beautiful

When your CPU is in the custom category.

hehe, yep the 4820k is not listed. It was an ex-server component.

No, this cannot do 1440p

Except it can. Performance at any resolution is heavily dependent on what settings you use and at what framerates you aim to achieve. The R9 Fury is about ~10% faster than the RX 580 at full boost. That puts it about on-par with the GTX 980 which is a proven 1440p capable card.

I’m suprised it can do 1080p with only 2gb of ram. Also 100fps on doom with r9 fury is kind of odd. My Rx 550 2gb can do 70 on all high settings.

Yeah I meant to enter the 2GB sticks 4 times, which I forgot to do. You can see in the photos there are 4 sticks; each are 2GB. Oops!
