Hey guys I'm currently running 2 gtx 590s in quad SLI and fps in black ops 3 and gta 5 suck. Fallout 4 is unplayable even at low it's in the 20s. I have a Q8400 over clocked to 3.2 ghz. I saw this benchmark where someone out a gtx 970 in a computer with a 2600k and compared it to a 970 with a 6700k. The results were surprisingly similar to one another. Being that sandy bridge only supports PCI express 2.0 like my cpu I'm wondering if I would net some gains ditching the old 590s and going with a modern GPU with my setup. I'm actually in the process of getting ready to build a new computer but if the $310 on a 970 can save me $1500 from buying a new one in going to do that in a hear beat. Advice? Thanks.
