Which video card is better then mine?!

Hello everyone!

I currently have a rig which consists of
==Monitor= apple cinema display 30"
==Case == Cooler Master COSMOS 2
== MOBO = Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/GEN3
== Intel i5-2500k CPU 3.30 but its overclocked to 4.3
==Memory = 2 sticks of Gskill 4096 MB each so 8 gigs memory(part#F3-17000CL9-4GBXM) Blue ripjaws
==Video Cards=2 480 GTX SLI EVGA
PSU== corsair HX1050

I love my 480s! They have ran and still do all games for the past 2 years but I would like to change the video cards as i feel is a little outdated...Reason being is because my monitor is 30 inches... 2560 is the resolution i would like to play, some games i can max out on 2560 x 1600 but some i cant so i play 1080 but that resolution doesnt do the monitor justice!!I would like perhaps 1 card that would do better then my previous 2 cards, or 2 cards that would completely blow the 480s out the water! And something that wont bottle neck my system up so that i could get the most of it! Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated!

And does any one know if i could maybe some how sell the video cards? or salvage them?? or get something for them? They are in perfect working condition!!!!!

    Would i choke the CPU? or itll be full blast??
  3. The i5 2500k is still one of the best gaming CPUs and will handle SLI GTX 670's no problem.

    you can mail those to me ;)
    lol

    you should be able to boost that 2500K up a good bit more no prob (depending on ur cooling temps) most people on here seem to have theirs at 4.8GHz or higher.

    if I were you, I would wait just a little longer for the 700 series to drop. rumor has it that they'll arrive in like 1-3 months.
  6. Hmm you could always hook them up and use them as space heaters... Or you could sell them on ebay or something it looks like they sell for around $120-$150 each.

    Nvidia is supposedly releasing a card called "titan" sometime this month, its a single GPU card that will perform close to that of the GTX 690 (dual gpu card). Might be worth waiting to see how that one performs before spending about the same amount of money on dual cards for about the same performance. Single cards normally have more consistant fram rates (higher minimum fps) as well as less micro stuttering. So I agree waiting a month or so and seeing the new stuff might be your best option.
