Anyone think I should wait for next gen cards? More information below. Current Build: None, using a laptop. Can't play many games Prospective Build * This is my first build, if any parts are terrible I would like to know * Spoiler i5 3570k processor AsRock Z77 Extreme4 mobo SanDisk Extreme 120gb ssd Kingston HyperX blu 1600 DDR3 ram Corsair CX600 psu NZXT 410 Mid Tower case Usage: Gaming: Mostly Planetside 2 & League of Legends, Battlefield 3 / 4, Crysis 3 Framerate: No less than 60, and no frame drops Quality: No preference, but would like play on high settings Resolution: 1600 x 900 Budget: $1100 total build, so around $300 on card Preferences: Nvidia cards, no preference on brand More about : card 300 wait gen coreempulse January 19, 2013 5:18:38 PM BigMack70 said:The 660ti would be a very solid choice for gaming at that resolution. Dunno if you'll be able to hit 60fps constant maxed out but 60fps average maxed out or almost-maxed should be doable. Since you don't already have a gaming rig, IMO there's no point waiting around for the next gen. We're still months off from new cards. Looks like a pretty nice midrange build. would 2x 7770 in Xfire be better? maestro0428 a b U Graphics card January 19, 2013 5:40:14 PM I would get the fastest single gpu you can afford. This one is the fastest in your budget http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... I don't have much (or good) experience with Gigabyte, but they are a reputable manufacturer.
