I just wanna be ready and max out bf4 at 60fps...

I know choosing the former would be the way to go price wise HOWEVER. I need a new psu for that. So really it probably ends up the same in cost lol, mainly cause I am picky with my PSUs and I never buy junk PSUs. Never had one fail in my 10 years of PC gaming. So I must be making the right choices.

err. Wait a min. I will probably need a new psu anyway with a 770 haha, however. I can get a slightly less power one therefore...still cheaper.

Just wait for BF4 to be out. Word is that AMD will release their new series at that time as well.

Well actually. I just looked up the watts that the 770 needs and it is 30watts less than my card. So I guess I wouldn't need a PSU for just it. Well that is good. My friend suggests I just get a 760 but that is such a waste considering that card is barely better.

780, next gen AMD flagship.

A 770 isn't going to cut it for maxing BF4 at 60fps.

Yeah, that's the problem. It's a 680.
