Don't buy last gen cards when the new ones are way better. I'd just wait till you can afford at least a 670 or better yet a 680.

geez, 670 or nothing?
Well back to reality. I can play gw2 on 8800gt @medium-high on 1080p. So take 650 or 660 (after release) or that 560ti. But if you dont need CUDA, you should go ATI, its better fps/$.

tbh it is not a matter of money, but a matter of logic. Although I can understand how important may be for someone to squeeze every effect and fps out of a game, I am a casual player (very very casual) and therefore I feel it would be a waste to invest in something just for ONE title, no matter how awesome (which indeed is, in this case).
Thanks everyone for the concern, 'tho smile.gif

btw, isn't the 6xx series better than 5xx one?

Yes. Higher performing, and uses less power.

If it's not hot enough to hurt when you touch it, then it's very cool. - TwoCables

Ironic that the people chastising me for recommending a 670 have one in their sigs, lol.

You can get an older gen card but why spend 200 dollars now to run medium settings when you can save and in a few weeks/months spend $350-450 and max out everything. Look at the big picture.

Nevermind, look at this thread https://www.overclock.net/t/1299314/h-660-ti-oc-vs-670-oc-vs-7950-oc/320#post_18134018

Get a 7950. It even runs over the 670 for $100 less, lol. The only upgrade from it is the 680 really.

U mad cuz I'm stylin on u headphone.gif

I don't think you get that he has a budget. And there's nothing wrong with medium settings. Having fun playing the game is more important than having the game look good. If you need a good example, just look at Minecraft.

If your going nvidia just for cuda then a gtx570 or 580 would be the card to get as the 600 series is kinda mediocre at it. The best bang for the Buck these days are AMD cards for sure. The 7850 and 7950 are two great cards that nvidia cant match when it comes to $/performance. The GTX570 is still kinda overpriced and the 7850 is defiantly the better card to get. If your willing to switch to open CL for all compute and it seems the industry is moving away from cuda for open cl anyway.

If your thinking about a 560ti you may as well try and find a used GTX460 1gb card for under 120 and call it a day as after you overclock both to the max the the two cards perform so close together that paying extra for the 560ti is kinda makes no sense.

I must admit, the card would be solely for GW2's sake. My setup already overpower any of my needs during common workflow. I would make good use of CUDA, but I can happily live without it (as I am currently doing...)

it's kinda weird reading this in the NVidia's subforum xD
But I kinda wanna trust you on this: would you in all honesty define it as a more logical investment?

would you please elaborate? I know about OpenGL, but CL looks obscure to me...

What are you even talking about? Why do you ALWAYS mention 1080i? No one uses 1080i anymore
