Should i Sell my New GPU? - Page 2

What CPU do you have? 760 is plenty to get good FPS at 1600x900. Maybe not all settings turned up but should be plenty nonetheless.

I Really like this OVERCLOCK.net Community, im proud to be user of this community, hats of to this community members, this is only i get quick help like eye shutter of time.
btw im using intel i5 2310 CPU.
4gb x 2 corsair ddr3 vengeance 1600mhz
regular mobo
and this card gtx 760
honestly, i only like to play gta games, i prepared my PC especially for Gta 5, then it got delayed,
i want to play on ultra frown.gif
should i get 280x ?
i would play ultra on this card?
if yes, is that card 280x, i have doubt there many things written on product like uefi blabla,
doubting that it may be other slower version of 280x thats why its cheaper,

actually bro, the budget if to tell, then its different, because in india we get 30x more cost than other countries,
i got my Gtx 760 month ago about 300$ = Rs18,000(INR:In indian rupees)
that is badd.
if i sell it, i would get 12000Rs. INR = 200$
i can only spend 165-66$ more, in that i can get only

The 280X is only marginally better than the 760. Not worth the change..

If anything I'd get a mobo that can overclock and a K sku CPU.

what in the heck are you talking about? since when was the 760 this bad, since when was 1080p medium settings only playable on 760? why is everyone saying this? As someone whos onwed a 760, this thing rocks it at 1080p, HIGH or more, never had to do medium. I dont know what kind of stuff you guys are smoking but if op iss STRUGGLING with 900p, hes got a problem not the card. first of all, AC Unity runs like crap anyway, second of all, why are you getting such bad framerates at 900p with watch dogs?

Seriously, when was the 760 this bad it cant even run games at 900p? Last time i checked the 760 was the perfect gaming card for 1080p resolutions (obviously not above that) Even the benchmarks dont suffer like everyones saying in this thread. its gotta be a joke

thanks for pumping my hopes,
no i have no performance issue with Gtx 760, i want to be get perpare for better, if gtx 760 is prepared atleast for gta 5 then that would save my money and happiness too smile.gif
i get 45-55 fps on watch dogs, texture high, anti aliasing:2x other things on ultra except anti aliasing and texture.
i cant play on ultra settings on this card is that its fault?
or i should not sell my current card its will do good job, i know we cant say about Gta 5, but
is 2gb enough ? sad to see when companies are making only 3gb gpu games. im confused.

2GB is enough. You don't even have a 1080p monitor and even if you did it would be enough for most games.

It might be partially the cards fault for not maxing the game out completely, but a higher clocked CPU would probably help pull up those frame rates. That i5 is stock at 2.9GHz and only turbos to 3.2GHz.

Honestly with the budget you gave us for a GPU, getting something better like a 280x isn't going to make a massive difference You might get 5-10 more fps average..You'd need to jump to like an R9 290 or a 970 to for a GPU upgrade to be justifiable, but that's my opinion as far as upgrades go. I think both of those GPU's would be overkill at 900p anyway.

Most of the high vram requirement are from either unoptimized games where they need that headroom for their poor coding or the game uses high textures in which in most cases may or may not look better and at the same time are meant for higher resolution. And most people who play at higher resolution mostly opt for 2 or more cards anyway (1440p/4K etc..). If the game is properly coded and not a port even at 1080p it shouldn't use that much. Some games use the vram available as cache and use it all the time so even if you had 10GB of ram it will use 9.8GB etc... so it depends on the game. An example of this is FC4 at ultra settings 1080p hovers anywhere from 1500-3400vram depending on where you're at, average is like 1500-1800 on regular levels and runs smooth, so the game is coded good and not a crappy port. Games like shadows of mordor ran fine on my 770 at medium settings but kind of struggled at ultra because it required 6GB of vram, but having a 970 w/ only 4GB of vram it ran it fine on ultra. So thats a game that uses vram more for actual texture cache rather than cache because theres free ram.

So if you're going to stay at 1600x900, 2GB is plenty. Even at 1920x1080 2GB is good but thats when it needs more horsepower for some games, so at 1080p level 780/Titan/780Ti (3GB) 290/290X (4GB) is fine and 970/980 (4GB) more of an icing on the cake. The 760 is a good card, if you have good cooling I would suggest overclocking it as well.

We don't know yet how GTA V will run but hopefully they focus a lot on the PC to utilize the hardware.
A 280X aka 7970 would be an overkill but here is what you're looking at if you were to compare:

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1041?vs=1038



Personally I would keep the 760 and use/save the other money towards getting better CPU/MOBO combo which will help your overall speed. If you don't want to do that you can also wait for the 960s coming early next year.

Other things to look at:
Getting latest patches for your game to run faster.
Getting latest drivers for fixes/performance. 344.75 atm.

thank you for great help,
i was again told my mind to keep it and again tried to play watch dogs, its buttery smooth on high texture but on ultra is like Virus in PC, the driving on ultra texture is Hell *****ty ,
is that because of 2gb vram? is watch dogs really need 3gb vram, im doubting that ubisoft is lying, because everything works on ultra, just driving is crap.
