I am planning to upgrade my graphics card very soon and saw this 560Ti under £150 http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Giga... do you think ant new card released in the next month or 2 will be better price/performance or the price will get lower still or should I grab it now? Its around what I want to spend and I think it will be great at the 1920x1080 I game at. I would plan to get another for SLi and upgrade my CPU to haswell in around 18 months. My current CPU is a Phenom x 4 @ 3.7GHz with 8Gb 1600MHz RAM. Any comments/advice welcome.
thats not an amazing deal. i might be worth waiting.
right now for 75% of the cost you can get a radeon 7770 and its 90% as fast. so if your really into nvidia then wait for their next gen. but its gonna cost more than the £150 your looking at.
The price war has already begun and the first results are gtx580 for 339€ and gtx570 for 249€.
In the next two months, we will see more cards, more competition and better prices .
So if I were you, I would wait a bit.
ps: I don't want to be the devil's advocate but the card you linked looks amazing with that blue pcb and the black cooler!!!
+1 Soon enough the apparently "outdated" fermi architecture will be replaced by kepler, being built in the old 40nm fermi architecture, the prices on the older nvidia 500 series will plummet by about 20%
EDIT: kepler is being released mid april (damn you nvidia with your vague dates)
I would also wait I don't think there is anything coming soon that will make a difference but getting a few more quid off of that card would make it very very tempting.
7770 dosent float my boat at all, reviews have the 560 Ti and this is talking standard cards here is +40% performance on a 7770. Not a difficult decision on the extra £30 in my opinion. Hope it get to an extra £10-20
