Video upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Howdy all,

 

Have been using my GTX 580 for a few years now and looking at upgrading just after some suggestions?

 

My current cpu is a i5 2500 and I have 8 gig ram if any of that's a help =)

Not sure how much you looking to spend but could sell your current card. The cpu is fine for gaming and your ram is ok too.

 

You probably will be looking at GTX 770, GTX 780, and HD 7970. These will be faster than what you got and anything slower, you might just keep what you got then. There is a rumor that AMD's new cards are coming by the end of the year too, but I hate saying wait till then since you will always be waiting for the next best thing. Here is a few charts to get you started:

What monitor setup do you have? I'm still running a GTX570 and it maxes out every game I've played just fine at 1920x1200. If you have higher res or multiple monitors, or are looking to go that way, then that might be a good reason to upgrade.
