Currently I have my graphics card extremely overclocked, almost to the point of instablility. I'm thinking about upgrading my GPU when to the 700 or 800 series of Nvidia cards are released.
I just want some thoughts or suggestions from others if it would be worthwhile to upgrade.
I just thought that I'd mention the fact that I live close to a MicroCenter in case it helped.
Hi. You can go with either the HD 7870 or GTX 660 for around $200 or less if you can get one on sale. I think the cheapest one is around $195 after rebate right now. When next gen cards arrive, they will get cheaper.
