I'm at a dilemma. I currently have: i5 750 CPU Nvidia GTX 560ti Biostar TH55B HD ( PCI-E 2.0)
Should I upgrade my first mobo/cpu to get 3.0 support, then upgrade my GPU next year? I'm curious to which will get me more performance. If I get a GTX 660 or 680 will that last me 2 or 3 years? I'd hate to buy a 200-300 dollar card then have to get a new one a year later. Currently, I'm getting lag spikes from low frames on BF4 on max settings. Though it only happens with massive environmental destruction is happening.
Yes, most cards do not take advantage of the 3.0 anyways. If there is a slight disadvantage, it will be very little.
Oh wow, had no idea they were backwards compatible. Yeah, might just get the GTX 760 if there isn't a huge difference from 2.0 to 3.0. 780 is a little too pricey for me. Thanks a lot, good information to know.
