Upgrading from 260 GTX

I am about to upgrade my system to a i5 2500k/ 8gb ripjaw and I feel like my old 260 gtx will bottleneck my computer. I am not sure whether or not I should spend the money for a 560 ti or wait until winter (some time around christmas) for something better.

  1. 560Ti is much faster than 260.As a result,you'll see a huge boost in performance.But what resolution do you play on ?

    1680x1050; I'll probably upgrade my monitor this christmas so 1920x1080.

    I guess the main question I have is there any "big" upgrade expected between now and Christmas or am I safe to upgrade now?
  3. GPU markets stable until at least early next year if not until Q2, until 28nm is ready. Biggest thing that might happen are custom 6870X2s, which you could just buy 2 6870s and crossfire.
  4. Right^
    If you wait,you can't buy anything because there is always something new around the corner.
    Get the 560Ti along with a 1080p monitor and enjoy :)
