Hey guys, I dont know if i should upgrade :(

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, i am using a 7970 right now and i can get a new gtx780 for around 585aud and a gtx titan for 996, I dont know if i should wait for AMD 9xxxseries or get a titan or 780 now, the reason i want to go back to Nvidia its because i uses After effects, C4D and other editing software and the reason im asking if i should wait for next gen AMD its because AMD will perform better in the futures games? also how much can i sell my sapphire 7970 dual-x for and an i5 2500k? cheers!

Still, you haven't provided a reason to upgrade. wink.gif

I, for one, wouldn't sell my 680 (considering they are tied with the 7970) for a 780 unless I had money to simply waste. Better to SLI it. And I've seen a topic here that by the 31st of July AMD will release a patch fixing Crossfire issues.
Have you any further demands in gaming? Are you running three displays or refresh rates over 96Hz?

As for work purposes, I would set my sight on a 780 because it would perform roughly 30% faster than the 7970 in After Effects (don't quote me on that though).

If you need to ask this then clearly you don't have to upgrade. 7970 will still take you a long way.

2500k chips are going for around AUD150 at the moment - unless it's a seriously good clocker.
Ebay would get you maybe 20 bucks more if you're lucky.

Wait until 2014 for a new nvidia chip..

if adobe is one of your main concerns, you should definitely wait until the next amd cards come out.
There is a high probability that amd opencl will do better than cuda on the next adobe suite.

Yeah, you shouldn't upgrade parts until they are deficient in your use of them (e.g. if you're working in AE and there is a 10 second delay every time you move an object). As far as I know the AMD OpenCL is more widely used and slightly more powerful than CUDA.
