Update GTX 460 768mb to GTX 560 TI Fermi 448 Cuda Cores 1280mb

Dear geeks!

I bought a EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) Classified Ultra 1280MB to replace my Gigabyte GTX 460 768MB. I put it in my computer and I did a clean install for the drivers. It runs, but when I play Counter Strike Global Offensive or Battlefield 3, I see NO FPS performance.

My specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

AMD Ahtlon II x4 635 2.9ghz
Gskills 4 x 2gb DRR3 1333
500gb Sata 3gb/s
PSU OCZ 650 Watts


Now... My friend has an i5 3.1 ghz (2nd generation) and he has almost the same setup and he runs 80fps higher than me. Would any of you think it's my GPU or my CPU?

Thanks!

  1. Most of your friends performance is coming from the CPU, so yes, it is your CPU.
  2. Also, would recommend upgrading the memory to at least 1600, possibly getting a SSD as well.
  3. It seems like it wasn't worth to buy the GTX 560 TI card as upgrade from the GTX 460... Am I right?

    In your case, no not really. The 460 was much better suited to the rest of your rig.
  5. So should I buy an i5 3770 3.4ghz and a new mobo?
  6. That would be one of the best CPUs you could get for gaming. Get the i5 3570k if you plan to overclock and the i5 3570 if not. (if you plan to overclock make sure you get a z77 motherboard)

    Even an i3 would be a huge improvement

    If I don't want to overclock..
    Motherboard brand you would recommend?


    Specs I am looking at:
    at least 1 PCI-E 3.0
    supports 1333 DRR3
    supports SATA 3gb/s
    price less or around $100

    My research:
    I can get one of these motherboards. I am really considering buying the i5 3570 3.4ghz
    I hope I can give links on this website (didn't see it in the rules) => http://i.imgur.com/WwUJ1.jpg

    Your CPU is deffinitly holding back your card.

    So you need a new CPU.

    And to OC you need a Z77/ Z68 P67 mobo.

    If u decide to OC you need K series CPU.

    But i suggest this.

    I3- 3220 and Z77 Extreme 4

    120$+104$=224 $

    So if u decide to Upgr CPU later you can OC it.. If u think u will never take a K series CPU buy Asrock B75 Pro 3 (great budget mobo)

    Anw I3 will do better than Amd high end CPU

    So it depends on your budget.

    But as your mobo budget is 100 for 4$ more get the Z77 Extreme 4 and a CPU from I3 to I7.

    Good Luck !
  10. Kickbox FTW, please check my post above. I put a link down!
  11. Z77 Extreme 4 for 95$.

    And do your self a favor. Get the K I5 . It will serve u way better than te non K.
  12. Thank you man. You do not recommend a cheaper MOBO, huh? :D
  13. Well with the K series that is the best mobo

    With non K B75 Pro 3 or a H77 mobo . Whatever u find Asus/Asrock
  14. Thanks! I gave you the best answer reply ;)
