Upgrade from gtx 580 to gtx770 4gb worth it

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Going from a gtx580 1.5. Gb to a gtx 770 4 gb. Would this be a good upgrade? I play at 2560x1600 and only have 1 monitor. I ask because my 580 plays the games I play really well but maybe they could be better and I don't know it.

It would be a pretty decent upgrade, but if you're happy with what you have now then sticking with your 580 isn't a terrible idea.

However you could always consider the 780 3GB (a much larger upgrade than the 770) or hold out for the new 800-series "Maxwell" architecture in 2014.

If you're happy with that 580 now, I say keep it until you 100% know you need to upgrade & that's my 2cents.gif ... thumb.gif
