I want to upgrade from my GTX 560 Ti. Budget is $300-$350. I prefer nvidia but I want to look at amd too. I was thinking about the gtx 660ti, heard a lot of good stuff about it.
It will be going with;
asrock z77e-itx mini
i5 2500k (max I seem to be able to oc is 4.4Ghz)
1920x1080 monitor

I won't be purchasing for another month, need to save up first

Edit: I live in Australia. I would prefer to buy from http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php but any other place that ships to aust is fine.

While the 660ti looks to be a decent upgrade, I would wait for the GTX700 series to be released. Generally 2 generations is the life of GPUs.

q3 as said above.

Though, is there a reason you're feeling the need to upgrade? Or do you just want something new?

Upgrade only if you plan on using a multi monitor configuration. At 1920x1080 you are just fine.

Hi,

Actually i have the same doubt has the OP, to upgrade or not to upgrade.
My setup is almost the same has yours, (same cpu), but i think i'll wait for the new generation to be launched, i bought a new monitor (benq xl 2411t), and besides the gpu don't do the 120fps on battlefield3, it's playable....(running setting at medium)... but i would like to hear more opinions if it's worth the upgrade or to wait until new generation arrives....
Thanks

I would wait, I'd rather save even more money by the time next gen is released and get a nicer card than upgrading to tech that's a gen old and soon to be 2 generations old. On top of that, by investing in that nicer next gen card, you won't have to upgrade nearly as quickly. I mean it's up to you, but if it we're me, I'd stick it out for another few months and get a card I know I won't have to buy again in a year or two time.

I would wait for the next generation of GPUs unless you are currently unsatisfied with your setup.

Given you are on a budget I'm guessing you'd like the most for your money and generally speaking you usually upgrade your video card every 2 generations unless you are an ultra enthusiast or ultra rich.
