I know, I know. People automatically would say "GTX560", but the merit behind the question is rather reasonable, I think.
I bought myself a Leadtek GTX260 Extreme+ (yes, the name has the plus sign in) back in 2008. I paid roughly R2500 (est. $310) for it. I owns in almost any game that I play. Recently though, I got myself an i7 and the card made DRASTIC improvements. It runs much faster and is a whole lot more stable.
My current rig is as follows.
Asus Rampage 3 Formula (motherboard)
Intel Core i7 960 (3.2 Gighz Quad Core CPU)
9 Gig Transcend 1333mhz (RAM)
Gigabyte 585W Odin (PSU)
Leadtek GTX260 Extreme+
2X SATA II Seagate 1TB HDD
1X SATA III Seagate 500GB HDD
LG DVD DL Lightscribe ROM
I have recently seen a graphics card, (Leadtek GTX560 2 GIG card) available for R2000 (est. $250). I want to know if it going to make a HUGE difference, or will it just be a kick of a can ?
I am not sure of the exact stats, seeing as my current GTX260 stats cannot be found that easily. I want to know from people who have made the jump, and was it worth it ?
Many thanks. Any questions, please feel free to post in the thread. I will comment quite quickly.
