From an Nvidia GTX 650 what should I upgrade to?

I bought it a while ago waiting for the 700 series to come out. I can't really drop $650 on the 780, which is the only one that truly seems worth it because it shares the Titan's architecture. So now I'm at a loss. I game mostly but I also edit videos with premiere and use after effects, 3d programs.

I'd like a performance increase from this 650 though, I just don't know which would be most worth it value wise.

760's are of excellent value especially if you SLI.

(Yes, I absolutely **** ride the performance:cost ratio of these cards because it's just that good.)

ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

You could also look into spending a bit more for a Sapphire HD7970. It's currently on sale for ~300 after rebates on Newegg

Then you should be freaking out over some the Radeons getting heavy discounts.

7990's are going for $650.

7970's are going for $300.

7950's are going for $200.

But I hate AMD for no apparent reason, so I can't do that silly goose.

Okay so what's the deal with Nvidia being better for Adobe products because of acceleration? Is that true?

That might change soon with apples push for OpenCL over CUDA. But right now you could use either

How much you looking to spend? I plunked down $400 on a brand new GTX 770 and it's best $400 I've ever spent. Crysis, Skyrim (with HD Texture Mods), Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider all run and look great with everything Maxed out.

It's not just Apple. Pretty much every company that's not Nvidia wants to switch over to OpenCL because of the broad range of devices capable of using those products right now.

I was thinking more of since there are some profesionals using adobe software on the mac and with the new mac pro comming with fire pro cards, adobe will have to put more openCL acceleration for their products
