Good upgrade to my gtx 460 768mb?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
It's not giving me the performance I would like in games at 1080p. I was considering getting a gtx 470, or should I wait on the gtx 560?

Waiting is always a good thing to do when it comes to pc components. The longer you wait the more the price goes down.

I would say wait for the GTX 560 to release and see how it compares to the 470 and your 460 performance wise and price wise.

I would also say that the jump from a 460 to a 470 would be a pretty decent jump in the performance area but wait and see what the GTX 560 provides.

when 560 comes out, why not pickup 2nd 460 and SLI?

How is a waiting a good thing? If you wait you never actually get anything.

Agree with that getting another 460 to run with SLI.
two 460s SLI gets better performance than any other single card does.

In his case waiting for the GTX 560 is good because by the time it comes out the prices of everything would have dropped for the market to stay competitive.

Yeh durh if he waits and waits and waits he'll get nothing xD. I meant for him to wait for the GTX 560 to come out.
