Hello Everyone! I am looking to upgrade my Graphics card. I currently have a Nvidia GTX 560 TI that I bought in 2011. I want to upgrade to a GTX 760 with 4GB of memory. Will thuis be a good upgrade? Also, will it be compatible with my current setup? I list my parts down below.

Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3
Processor: Intel Core i7 2600k
Power Supply: 600 watts
Ram: 16GB

Yes it is compatible but you dont need 4GB of VRAM unless you use multiple monitors on high resolutions, if you have single 1080p monitor 2gb of vram is more than enough for all games. Get Gigabyte Windforce GTX 760

Okay, thank you! I have two 1080p monitors do you think the 2GB is still enough? Also, that Card is pretty long. I wonder if it will fit? I have a mid tower Antec case. I do not know the model number.

It that case go for 4GB because some games require more vram and on dual monitors it could be ok but if not it will be a huge bottleneck so for safety it is just 20$ extra

For the case im not sure but I think it will fit in most cases, if you could tell current model I would tell. But I think that shouldn't be a problem
