I am looking to upgrade from my GTX 570 to something new. The main reason I am upgrading is because I would like to have solid 60 FPS, max settings and 1920x1080 resolution with the following games:
Far Cry 3
Saints Row the Third
I also want to record so if I could also maintain 30-40 FPS while recording it would be nice. I was considering either getting a GTX 680 or a 7970. I prefer Nvidia only because of the PhysX but I heard you can just get older drivers and use a Nvidia GPU with the AMD GPU, but I'd rather not do that. Anyway, I'm open to getting either AMD or Nvidia I just need suggestions on models which I should get. If you need any more information just ask and I will provide.
I plan on upgrading from my non-K 2500 to a 2700K as I have a 1155 mobo and do not want to upgrade to 2011 or wait until 1150. My question is, is the 680 worth the ~100 premium over the 7970? To me it seems like it is, but I'd like an outside opinion before I commit to a purchase.
Thank you. ^_^
Yeah I thought about waiting until Haswell to see if it's worth spending the 100-300$ to upgrade. I guess I'll get a 7970 as they are cheaper and just use hacked/older drivers so I can do PhysX in Borderlands 2. Besides, I don't think the pric premium is worth the extra 100 for a 680.
