    It depends how fast the ps4 / xbox "720" is. I might just by a console :P

    Need more GPU as I journey to avenge King Cailan & vanquish the Arch Demon amidst the Fifth Blight.

Thread Starter 
ps3 was released 6 years after the ps2 launched. So if the ps3 launched in 2006, the ps4 release date if going by history, would be imminent...within the next 2 years.

So if the ps3 had the equivalent desktop gpu of a 7900gtx. And in 2006, the top desktop graphics card was an 8800gtx, which basically had a big massive generational performance gap over the 7000 series gpu.

This same performance gap appears to be rearing it's head in the cuda gpu road map for Maxwell in 2013.

So it would be my hunch that the ps4 launches by 2013, and have Kepler's mid-range performance...which could be as fast as a GTX580.

Edit: Judging by this, I wold probably have to upgrade by 2013. Of course if a good deal comes along that goes out the window,

What's this thing you call a "console"?
IIRC it's something that barbaric cavemen use.

Of course! As much as I love my 460s right now they will be way inferior in at least 2 years, and when new consoles come out, then for sure I might buy a new gpu. gtx 880 !!

Yeah, I am, especially since I'd need a CPU upgrade (which itself is doing more than fine for me right now) before thinking about substantially more powerful GPUs compared to what I have or more RAM or whatever.

With 2X 6970's in Cross-Fire I do not think I will have update these bad boys for quite some time...

I plan on keeping my 460 for a while... I don't game as much anymore, and I'm going to be putting more money towards school and a car rather than computers.



Oh, and the next upgrade I'm getting is an SSD.
