Have Birthday Money To Spend...what to upgrade? SSD? GTX 760?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I have $300 in birthday money to spend, and I was wondering what you guys think would be the best upgrade to my sig rig?

I was thinking of grabbing a GTX 760 for 259.99 and then getting a game with the balance to replace my GTX 570.

Other option is to get a bigger SSD (256gb) to replace my 128gb SSD.

Which would be the more noticable difference? My 4.7ghz 2500k wont be a bottleneck for the gtx760 right?

Any other suggestions for what to upgrade without getting too crazy? Thanks!

Get a Used 7970 on the MP, it will smoke the 760

That, OR, Sell the 570 and get a 770

Will a 760 be a noticeable improvement over a GTX 570 in the current gen of games?
