770 still worth upgrading to...?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Currently have a 660 and am looking at my local Microcenter stock for an upgrade. Happened to come across a GTX 770 in stock for only 169.99. Currently my budget is around $250 however trying to factor in a new PSU and a few other small things if possible as I'm sure I'm pushing it to around my limits as it is.

Is it worth upgrading to a previous gen card? Worth choosing a 770 over say a 960?

I would go for the GTX 770, and definitely if it is cheaper then the GTX 960, Its a great card and benchmark wise almost always beats a GTX 960.

I am at this point too. To I get a stop-gap card or go big and get a whole new system? I was also thinking the same thing: get a more powerful older card or a newer less powerful one.

That 770 is something you won't ever regret .

I absolutely love mine, and foresee it being used for many more years to come.

In fact, I have 2 PC's... one of them has an older GTX 275 in it still, which is still a kick butt card, but finally showing its age... so I'm thinking in a few months I'll take my 770 and replace that 275 with it; so I can keep using the 770... then hopefully get an nVidia Pascal for my main rig if they're out and available by then..

Already part of the club thumb.gif

So far I really like the card. My only regret is not going 4GB version instead but I couldn't pass it up for the price.

Nice choice on a reference 770! I've had a few and they're great! Best looking cooler ever made IMO. Love that Titan cooler smile.gif

I bought mine "Used". It was a an RMA card for someone, so it was still in the factory sealed bag but the box was "open".
