Hello,

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?

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?

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.
