this is my setup
i5 2500k at 4.2ghz
corsair hx 850
8gb ddr3 ram gskillz
asus xonar dg soundcard



i want to be prepared to play bf4 near max settings
im getting frame drops in newer titles and i just think its time,
i have the budget for a 780 but i dont think id be gaining anything from it since the card i have is bascially a downscaled 570
what should i do?

also will upgrading bottleneck my cpu?
is it that good to go?

if you can wait a few weeks amd this week is dropping newer gpu. after the drop some of the leaks say nvidia may be dropping there gpu prices and may drop a few newer cards for the 250 price point.

That's what I'm waiting for... I plan to sell my Sli 470 and get an R9 280X. It's a marginal upgrade at best but worth it for the extra vRAM, lower heat output, and lesser noise. I've put a lot of thought into this.

The R9 280X is $299.99 and is comparable to a GTX 770. The R9 290X is going to be $699.99 and compares to a Titan. There is a huge gap between the highest end card and the one that's one notch below it.
