Upgrade from gtx 560


I have a gtx 560 graphics card and I'm looking to upgrade. The reason being is I play Skyrim and love using the ENB series that are modded to it. My problem is once I use them my fps goes from 60 to 19.

What graphics card should I update to in order to play the game at a decent frame rate?

    I also added A 760W power supply

    If you need more info let me know, I def dont claim to have lots of computer knowledge, just the basics. This is the info from a dxdiag I ran.

    Thanks for the reply
  3. Power supply brand/model and the budget range ?
    You have a good cpu, for mid/high end cards.
  4. the budget is around 250 - 300.
  5. The 660 ti will be a good upgrade, like this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121656
  6. thanks for the info, I'll focus my attention on that card. One more question,

    I was told my computer will accept the sli set up (two cards) is that a route to consider or is that more of a headache?
  7. What's the motherboard brand and model ?
    It's not a headache, just make sure that you have a motherboard with SLI support and that 760W psu is a decent one, a quality one with 600-700W will do.
  8. Gtx 660ti in nvidia and hd 7950 in amd.make sure that get 2gb vram as helpful in skyrim+ mods
  9. sorry for the dumb question now, how do i find out my motherboard brand and model? is it located in the dxdiag info?

    0y2mrg I believe but I am looking into it now if that doesnt sound right.
  10. Check with CPU-Z, in the tab, mainboard.
