Comapre what I have to what I'm thinking of...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just built a 3930k machine and am quite happy with the results. I don't do a lot of gaming except for an occasional bout of NFS and Dirt. The question I have, since I don't focus much on video performance, is how much better would a HD7770 be than the GTX260-216 that I currently have?

Bottom line is that it just seems wrong to build a nice machine and put an old part in it. Plus, if I can get something that is quieter/uses less power/generates little heat it seems like a plus.....

Help me rationalize a new video card......rolleyes.gif

Just noticed that I can't spell worth a darn....

It wouldn't be an upgrade at all since it's on par with a gtx 260 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html
