An upgrade from a GTX 560 SE 1GB Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Graphics Last response: March 1, 2013 11:50 AM in Graphics & Displays Share dazontheweb March 1, 2013 11:30:24 AM Hi all, I've been looking around and wondering what would be a wise choice for an upgrade from a GTX 560 SE 1GB. I'm limited to PCIE 2.0 due to the motherboard. The CPU is an AMD FX-4 4170 Black Edition 4 Core 4.2GHz Socket AM3+ which is not overlocked. The PC also has 8GB ram on a Windows 7 64 bit system. I've been looking on http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/graphics_cards_buy_now_u... but some extra advice or feedback would also be nice. Thanks!

The AMD Radeon 7870 XT should be a significant upgrade, but you may need to buy a new CPU, like the FX 6300 or the FX 8350. dazontheweb March 1, 2013 11:50:21 AM Hi, I was looking to upgrade just the GPU and kinda sticking with PCIE 2.0 for awhile yet. Another quick question! When is the SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 meant to be released in the UK? I've read March and April release dates. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
