Even with the 10 series releasing I feel no immediate need to upgrade my gpu. Where the hell is this "NVidia killed kepler" crap coming from? They are great cards and still perform fantastically well.
They never really killed it but stopped optimizing. when you bought it how much faster it was compared to 280x/7970 ? look at how faster it is now ( actually slower in some games ). if you can't see the difference than you are blind.period. heck there are people who upgraded from 680 to 780. 7970 got that upgrade from just the drivers. talk about better support there. most people don't want to acknowledge amd gave better support so instead they trash nvidia for gimping kepler
i had GTX 670 that time. and i have seen how 7970 was slower but now its much much faster. there's a reason why i'm mostly salty against nvidia even though i'm an nvidia user and i won't lie i'll still buy nvidia gpu because i don't want to loose 3dvision. when i buy a gpu i buy it because it's faster and has better p/$, 560ti/670 both had that at the time i bought them. but it vanished pretty quickly. it feels like once you give them your money they don't really care. a fake value.
