Graphics Card upgrade,is it worth it?

Recommended Posts

Hey fellas,

Got a question, but first here's my rig at present moment-

GPU: GeForce GTX 660

CPU:Intel Core i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz

Memory:G.Skill 8.00 GB DDR3 Ripjaws X C9 1600MHz

Mobo:ASROCK Z77 EXTREME 4

Got a little money for Chrissy and was wondering what to spend it on. To be honest I could probably only afford something like this http://www.ple.com.au/ViewItem.aspx?InventoryItemId=614560if I was to go Graphics Card. What kind of difference could i expect from the 660 or would I get more out of using it with the 660?

Any help appreciated.

Definitely not. It's only one generation old(if you consider the 760, not the 970 and 980), and it runs pretty neat. Not to mention that this is a "rank" lower, (50 vs 60), and looking at the benchmarks a 750 ti performs much worse than the 660.

Even if you had more money, it's not worth it unless you spend your money on a 970.

Your GPU is simply good at the moment. If you want another awesome GPU, I would save that money, and ask the same question next year. Then you have twice the money and the performance gap is bigger.

Would be grateful if you could have a quick look here as I have no idea what anything means :P

Price range is about £100

Something like this maybe? http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/nvidiageforcegraphicscards/nvidiagtx750series/gv-n750oc-2gl.html

Oh and just to say I only really want it for KSP as most other games I play run fine with it. (apart from skyrim maybe)

Thanks for the advice. Think I'll spend it elsewhere then. Could also do with a new keyboard. Much appreciated.
