    Question GPU Upgrade

    Here is my situation.
    I recently bought some new parts.
    My current system is:

    Intel i5-3570 @ 4x3,4 GHz
    8 GB RAM
    GTX 660
    Win7 64 Bit

    So,i wanted to upgrade my GPU and thought about a GTX 770 or a 780.
    Would that be a bad decision or not?Or maybe a GTX 680/690?

    780 would be the best option in my mind.
    Best performance for price and definitely future proof.

    I'd double the 690, depending on budget.

    If you're not financially restricted then get a 780, it will last you quite a few years.
    Click the 'Thanks' button at the bottom right if I helped you in some way or if you're a good person looking to thank me for no reason

    Fine
    Depends on money you have.

    Radeon is also 9% slower but 32% cheaper

    440$ - Radeon 7970
    650$ - 780

    The radeon isn't as good but its only losing really in Texal and pixel rates, so if you have multiple or Eyefinity than don't grab the radeon.
