New Graphics Card or wait?

Hi guys I've recently upgraded my processor from an fx-4170 to an 8350 and feel like I might upgrade my GPU aswell. Would this be a good time to do it? Or should I wait to see what new GPU's are released?
My current GPU is the gtx 560ti, thanks guys

  1. If you can wait for half a year..then you can try. I suggest you to upgrade to GTX 770. You gonna get real performance improvement for sure. Best regards.
  2. It really depends on how much you can invest in it, but I would wait a bit. If you can't wait, maybe the 770 like said above me.

    If I was to upgrade then it would be to an r9 270x or something :p
  4. Take a time, collect some money and go for the GTX770/R9 280X.
  5. I would either get a mid range card now like the 270x or wait later on for the newest line up to replace the same sort or card

    If you cant afford these that I've just suggested.. go with the mid range GTX 760.

    The 560 Ti is still fairly capable so it'll definitely last you a few months, I'd wait and save a bit for a more worthy upgrade

    As another above suggested, waiting a few months for a new generation of cards to come out would be a good idea

    By then, there'll either be price drops on current cards to clear stock or you'll find a worthy upgrade in the new series of upcoming cards
  8. Thats an option, but you have to wait until aprill 2014. If you're okay with that this is your best solution for now.
  9. I've also just found an amazing deal on a 7870, for only £130!!
  10. well the the gtx 7xx series and amd r7 and r9 series are fresh launched just few months old so no new gpus are coming in near future
    instead of 7870 buy r9 270x bcz as you want a latest gpu and 7870 is previous gen now and its replaced by r9 270x
  11. Nvidia briefing and maxwell official ship dates comming this sunday jan 5th from las vegas at the cosmopolitan hotel.

    If your really would like a little more out of gaming than what you have, the 7870 ia very good 1080p gpu.
    If you are ok with what you have, save up and see where things are in a few months.
  13. May I ask what model PSU you have?

  17. In your opinions, what would justify the purchase of a gtx 780?

    Who are you asking this to?
  22. No thats speculation and rumor. Nothing has been official yet and wont be until sunday. The late February or march from everything I have read is word of mouth and nothing saying this info has come from nvidia.

    Ah ok then, i've just been reading it around the web that's all, plus i doubt that they'll be releasing them within the next 5 months
  24. Hopefully sunday we will hear a nice early release date and not a late one.
