If you feel that it can't play some games, you can consider upgrading. jaideep1337 November 4, 2012 2:50:31 AM If I were you I would keep it. That card still has a lot of power left in it. I would wait for directx 12 or something to come out. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Deemo13 November 4, 2012 2:53:04 AM I would keep it as well.
