Should I upgrade to GTX 670?

Hello everyone.

I was wondering if it would be a good idea to upgrade to a GTX 670 from a GTX 560 ti. I game on my 46 inch HDTV in the living room with 1920x1080p resolution. The only games i've played on it so far is Crysis 2 and Darksiders 2 and they run just fine on high settings, but i'm more concerned about future games and next gen in general.

Here's my current setup

LIAN LI PC-Q08B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Intel Core i5-3570k

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB Graphics Card (1024 MB, GDDR5)

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

COOLER MASTER Vortex Plus RR-VTPS-28PK-R1

SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W

ASUS P8H77-I LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard


Since this is a SFF build with only one PCI-E slot, SLI isn't an option. So would I be better off upgrading now or waiting for the 700 series before making the jump? Thanks!

If everything now runs fine, why upgrade now?

There's no point upgrading in anticipation of future titles, unless there's some amazing deal on the 670 you're looking at.

If you just have the cash burning a hole in your pocket, consider some other upgrade, or maybe just a new phone or gadget.

-Just my two cents.

Don't know much about Unicode but how can you have influence on this, it is Tom's own program what makes you a youngster or whatever ? Totally puzzled :pt1cable:

Yes no point in upgrading unless if your happy with what you seeing. If 6 months from now there are games that come out that you can't play then you can look into upgrading and prices was will cheaper.

My Personal Quote is a unicode right-to-left override, which makes the text in that area render backwards ;)
