or 7950. I run all the modern games: Dishonored, Batman series, Skyrim, Max Payne 3 with no problems. My monitor is 1080p and CPU is i5-3570.

in 1080p, alot. you would be able to max out setting on those titles, while getting higher fps.

Your frame rates will be multiplied by 2.5.

My frame rate would increase a few folds, but what does that mean to a casual gamer? Would I be impressed by the difference in visuals?

I already have the settings maxed out on the games I've mentioned.

My CPU is i5-3570 and monitor 1080p. With HD 7770, I run Skyrim with max settings and fps is 60, so what improvements will I see with a 7970?

Are you sure about that? I kind of doubt HD 7770 is able to max out all the mentioned games at 1080p resolution.

Also, if you're running at 40 fps, it will become much smoother. The moving objects will look MUCH better. Look at this comparison:

I really doubt you have minimums of 60. If all you are looking at is Skyrim you will be able to run more mods and turn aa up.

You dont run Skyrim at Max(Ultra) settings at a resolution of 1080p and get 60 fps with a 7770. Sorry, you just dont. Heck even toms doesnt....



Regardless,

a 7970 will max the game out with all the eye candy turned up to max. As for FPS expect 90+ or in that neighborhood.

How many times are you going to ask this question? There is no way you have playable framerates maxing out every game with aa on 4x or 8x.

After reading this, it's not worth spending 500 bucks on a GPU since I'm only a casual gamer. I'm sure I have the settings maxed out and I see nothing that bothers me. If I'm happy with what I see, I guess I'll just keep my 7770. The only modern game I have problems with is Battlefield 3 (Frames per second), but I don't really care about that game, at all. Luckily I only spent 10 bucks on that.

What you said may be true. I'm just a casual gamer that is happy with what I see with my current GPU, so no need to upgrade. I just checked on Youtube, HD 7970 maxed out settings, I don't see anything different, at least to bust out 500 bucks.

    Yup. That's what I just said. If you are happy with your GPU, there is no reason to upgrade.
