Upgrading from a 570 GTX (Twin Froz iii PE/OC), need advice.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So as the title says im upgrading from a 570 GTX Twin frozr iii (PE/OC), it's been a good card but I just upgraded everything else (Well besides PSU cause it's still running well, it's only a couple of years old).

Anyways im looking for something that's

A. At least relatively new, and not terribly outdated. I realize everything is outdated with computers.....but still I like to have newish stuff.

B. Preferably under 250 bucks.

C. Something I can buy in Best Buy (preferably). I realize the prices are higher, but I have a gift card and alot of Best Buy Rewards points


I don't really play a ton of SUPER high graphic quality games. But I noticed my Skyrim will start to dip below 60fps when I have alot of graphics mods installed. So I would like to alleviate that. I may play something like BF4, not sure though. I do like to keep my settings on as high as possible though.

I only play on 1 monitor as well.

My Specs in my sig are all accurate.

I usually stick with Nvidia as well, but obviously im not oppposed to either (Im not a fanboy, it's just what has worked best for me)

the other option of course: Just wait for 800/900 series. But i have no idea when that will be.


Thanks!

I guess however, if they are like "TOP" of the line cards (AKA expensive) I feel like I won't really "need them" unless they have lower end models too.

I had the GTX 570 for 3 years but had to upgrade because of BF4 to a GTX 770 which was a amazing improvement. Judging by your budget I you wanted to stay Nvidia I would get a 760 right now that is evga and then use there step up program and get a 770 or 780 after 90 days. That might be doable because off the possibility of GTX 800 cards coming out 1st quarter and the 700s go on discount.i am going to use the step up program for the 780 because I couldn't afford that right away. Once I have that I should not have to worry about gaming for the next 2-3 years

I believe that the 3/4gb 192bits 860gtxti could cost 300usd

I would rather go with the r9 370x for 350/300usd
