Do I sell my GTX 660ti, and buy a GTX EVGA 770?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the title. I have a GTX 660ti at the moment, fairly new, purchased about 8 months ago. I went to a release event for the 7 series... I want to know if I sell my GTX 660 ti for around the £180 mark, and pay the £200 difference to get the new 7 series... I know this is a silly question posting this on an Overclocking website where we all tend to spend money on our PC's that we actually don't need to. Will I notice a big difference in performance? I was then also thinking of WC the 7 series, Buying a water block for my GTX 660ti is an expensive venture!

Don't just say yes because its an upgrade tongue.gif! Should I do it for performance? Will it be a big difference? Or should I maybe look at getting another 660ti and running in SLI?

Thanks

Jay

Are you unhappy with your current gaming performance? Are you having to hold back on any eye candy that you'd like to see enabled? The 770 is an awesome card, the 660ti is pretty strong as well, it's what I was using prior to the Titan. I'd say go for it, but it's really dependent on your current level of satisfaction with the 660ti.

Happy?! I am more than happy with my 660ti, I just was thinking future proofing tbh! Plus watercooling, assuming that the 770 waterblocks will eventually (Hopefully) be cheaper than the 660ti! The only one I can find is on the EK website shipped for the US of A! Thats gonna cost a hunk load in shipping!
