hi all please help me...
right now my system is :
i5 2500k
asrock z68 pro3
gskill trident pc 12800 cl8
sapphire hd 5850 extreme
32 inch lcd monitor with 1920 x 1080

im planning to upgrade to sparkle gtx 560ti....
my most game i played is dirt 3, f1 2010 which favouring the nvidia cards ,....

so do you think it's worth the upgrade. because i read in benchmarking that radeon 5850 average fps in dirt3 is 60 while the nvidia gtx 560ti average fps is 80...

so do you think that is noticeable difference between those 60 and 80 fps.....
thank you so much for your kindness,,,,

i do seek for an advice since im new to all of this

f1 favors ati and the 560 isnt the generational upgrade you need. 5850 clocked well will still batttle (and lose to the 470) the 560 is better but not a massive step up from the 470.

The real upgradeis 570 or better for you ....6970 is what you should buy f1 favours ati and dirt 2 did as well (underpowered ati cards could still compete with NV)

PS I want a 560 becuase I missed the boat on the saphire 5850 then wanted to buy a 470 but avoided it for heat and noise reasons

+1 f1 favours ati cards greatly. if your monitor refresh rate is greater than 60fps you may notice the difference. 60fps is perfect for racing sims imo. a gtx560 is not much of an upgrade imo. aim for a 6950 or 6970 or if you can crossfire, get another 5850.

Thanks for the best answer but I agree with this If you can find a cheap 5850 and have a CF Mobo Go with this,
