I am new to “higher-end” PC gaming and I have a couple of questions. How do I tell what graphics card I have? I have thrown the box away and the only thing I can see on the card is “Direct CUII.” The DirectX diagnostic tool, Windows system devices, and AMD Catalyst screens all just say, “AMD Radeon R9 200 series” and not the actual model I have. I don’t know if it’s an R9 270 or a 290. Second, I currently game on a PS3 on a 42-inch HDTV. What PC games can you recommend that will really showcase the fact that the PC has better graphics than the PS3 and PS4?
