Is it worth upgrading?

Recommended Posts

I currently have a GTX580 on a 2600k with 16gb setup.

 

I use 2 monitors and a TV although the GTX580 only powers my "main"/gaming monitor at 2048x1152.

 

I have yet to find games I want to spend time playing (i usually try games for a couple of minutes and move on), but will I benefit significantly more to upgrade to a newer/faster card? (7970/gtx680?)?

 

cheers

I suggest you find games you like first then see if the performance is good enough or if you want extra.

you seem to imply there are games for which a gtx580 isn't good enough to perform fully. is that right?

there is games that will run noticeably better with a 79#0\gtx670\680

but since you are not playing those games and current gen cards are getting long in the tooth i wouldnt be in a hurry to upgrade

although 7950 for $300 will be faster giving you twice as much vram and using a fair chunk less power

which games for instance?

I saw this http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/90941 (Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB OC Graphics Card $349.00) and was wondering whether I should upgrade or not.
