I haven't ordered any parts yet so I was considering upgrading from a GTX 760 to GTX 770. Is it worth the price upgrading to the 770? I understand it is more powerful, but also much more expensive. Here is what I have so far:

Processor: Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus H87-PLUS ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4GB Dual Superclocked ACX Video Card
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 300R Windowed ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Antec EarthWatts Green 650W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

Thanks in advance.

I think that whether something's "worth it" is something for you to decide based on your budget etc., and isnt something we can tell you. As to how the two compare, this should be rather useful in showing you how they stack up: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1038?vs=1037

It depends on how much you need it. What games are you going to play?

I'm hoping to play Dragon Age: Inquisition and probably The Witcher 3. Thanks for the link Vortical.

If you understand what FPS you like, look up videos on how each performs in the games you want. Figure if that is the FPS you like.

But, the 700 should be much more than the 760. It should only be $40-60 more. Check out newegg for great prices.

The 770 is 100$ more than the 760, so I'll think on it. Thanks guys.

What version of the 770 are you looking at? The 770 should only cost you $320 and the 760 should cost you $260.
