Time to upgrade or ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello overclockers !

I have two GTX 275's laying right here, the only thing I need for them to run is a better power supply, wich is around 100 euro's. My question was, is it worth to upgrade to a newer card for around 200 euro's (GTX 660 or HD 7870), or should I keep the 275's another year and buy another power supply. By the way, I don't really care about physx or dx 11...

Greetings !

It sounds a bit like you already know what you want so i will say buy a new PSU unless you have a ton of games you want to play that you cant with 2x 275´s

With your CPU, expect the GTX 275 SLI to be even weaker than in the graphs, but not by much. wink.gif

I would say sell the GTX 275 and buy a newer card. Keep same PSU.

You've got a point, even a 560 Ti would beat one 275 in most cases.. Thanks !
