Hello

I have been looking at the GTX670 and thought it would make a nice upgrade to my 570 from EVGA, but since I don't fully know what I'm doing when it comes to changing components, I wanted to check on here whether it would be advisable. These are my current specs:

Intel i5-2500 3.3ghz Sandy Bridge
8GB DDR3 RAM
EVGA GTX570 1.2gb
Coolermaster Xtreme Power 700W PSU
1TB Caviar Blue

I recently bought this PSU to replace a really substandard iPower one too, and my 570 seems to be pretty happy with it as well

Thank you for reading :)

Yes, a GTX 670 would be a perfect upgrade for your system. you might even save a few cents on the electric bill :p 

Though I must say, while you'll get a very noticeable performance upgrade ~25%, the 570 isn't that outdated, if you wanted to, you could probably wait until next year for big kepler or something... but that's just the frugal side of me talking :)

Its just that a 670 here in my country costs $800, and a 690 costs about $1800 so I can barely afford a 670 :/ , I think i will definately go for the 670, if my system is happy about it :)
