Upgrading from a evga gtx 570 SC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am not sure what video card i should upgrade to or even if i should. I only play GW2 on my PC and am not sure if i would get that much of a frame rate boost from upgrading to a gtx 760 or 770. I am just not sure how i can calculate how much of a frame rate boost i will get. Do you guys know of any calculators or some way i can do some side by side comparison?

A 770/680 is a good 25 to 30% faster in games, but has the compute crippled severely with keplar. Also, overclocking your current processor would help alleviate bottleneck on the aforementioned cards.

Thanks for the info, i would love to OC my cpu but my mother board and bios which is on current version will not let me do so successfully. I have a dell xps730x and a lot of the components are locked down and not compatible with other components that aren't dell. I really would love to get a new case, motherboard, cpu and PSU but just don't have the money at the time.

If all you play is GW2, I would just keep what you have for now. You would get an increased framerate with a new card but it would not be that significant. You wouldn't really notice the difference. I say just save your money for a new build. LGA 1366 is starting to get old and will start to be the bottleneck of your system in the next year or so. Unless you plan on playing more demanding games like BF4, the 570 will do fine for you for now.

I agree with above especially considering the fact you cant overclock your CPU. It would be a little pointless in buying say a GTX770 and running into a CPU bottlneck unless you had plans to upgrade your CPU shortly after.

If i was to buy a new GPU right now i think i would buy a GTX770 myself though, just my personal choice, no specific reason other than i like Nvidia.

EDIT:

anyway take a look on AnandTech at the benchmarks to get a little bit of a rough idea about some GPU benchmarks should you still go ahead. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU14/815
