As the title states, I am looking for an AMD Graphics card that would work well for a gaming PC on Linux. I know Nvidia's drivers are usually better for Linux, but i'd like to have an AMD card for the upcoming Mantle API, that and i've never used Nvidia before so I suppose you could say i'm more "loyal" to AMD. Price isn't a huge problem, but i'd say around $300 is my budget, I can put more or less if need be, but then again, most of the super new AMD cards have bad support on Linux so far, so I don't think i'll need to worry about that. I was looking at the AMD Radeon r7 260x (I guess I could get dual of this card and crossfire if that'd be recommended), but not sure if it would hold up to the standards of what i'm wanting it for. For reference, my PC is going to have 16 gigs of ram, power supply can be adjusted as needed, and my cpu will be an Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor, although that's liable to change if anyone here has a better suggestion for that as well. Some games I play are Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim, Payday 2, and that's honestly about it for High-end games, i've never had a great graphics card so i've never been able to play the more graphics-intensive games such as other AAA games. Most of my games list consists of all Valve source games, all Penumbra and Amnesia games (i'll want a great graphics card for playing the upcoming SOMA from Frictional Games) League of Legends (I'm gonna have to play that in Windows sadly, hard to get to work well in Linux), and a collection of other somewhat mid-level indie games(click all at bottom to see all my games I own on steam). I guess any other computer parts could be suggested, this is the first time i've built my own PC, and I just want to get parts that will go well with Linux (and the inevitable occasional "I have to play this game in Windows" game, planning on getting a small ssd for just Windows). (Sorry this is so long, I wanted to be thorough ). Here is my build list so far if anyone is interested.
