Upgrading from 2 x Gigabyte GTX560 ti 1GB in SLI

Hi there,

I'm currently running a system with 2 x GTX 560 ti cards in sli with an i5-2500k cpu, 8gb corsair vengeance ddr3 ram and an OCZ 750w psu.

I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card, mainly in preparation for Battlefield 4. I'm open to single card options as well as a switch to Radeon if needed and my budget is around the £300 mark. What cards do you recommend?

Also, is it worth considering a memory/cpu upgrade for now?

Thanks in advance.

No it's not worth a memory or CPU upgrade for now.

You could get a GTX 660. Would do you well I'm sure.

However it's not thaaaat far away from your current setup now is it.

And they say you should go for at least 3 tiers higher, to feel a difference too.

Thanks for the reply. I've been out of the loop for a while with regards to the current state of PC tech (in fact, I only got my current cards based on a recommendation from a friend) so which cards, around the 3 tiers higher mark should I be looking at right now?

I think you could try waiting for some 800 series cards. If that's too much, perhaps a

GTX 770 perhaps. But I don't believe BF4 is out yet either, so that ought to give you some

time. I don't think it'll be wholly unplayable with your setup either, you might get surprised.
