Have 7770, worth getting a 650 TI Boost?

#1Bad0CompannyPosted 10/14/2013 12:07:21 PM
So with the prices of the 650 getting close to what i got my 7770 for, i was wondering if it would be worth it to pick one up and sell my 7770, would the upgrade be worth the about 20 bucks? I mainly play BF3, and possibly BF4 in the future, and in 1080P, obviously not getting the most amazing framerates in BF4, so any input would be appreciated.

No. They're roughly the same tier card.

If you wanna play next gen games, go at least 7870 or stick with what you got.

Thank you both for your input, but could you please explain the rational?
How is 10-20 expenditure not worth a 30 FPS increase? Source: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU13/583

EDIT: As well as in the increase in the bus and the jump from 1GB to 2. Like i said i appreciate the insight, just trying to understand.

Where did you get this idea that you'll be able to sell your 7770 for the price it's selling for new?

I reckon it is worthwhile, if you really can upgrade for just $20. It would be especially worthwhile if the Boost had 2GB of VRAM.

EDIT Yeah, look at this........

How much are you expecting to get for the used 7770? You can buy a new 7770 for 89.99 on newegg. Also what is price of the 650 TI Boost you are planning on buying?

If it will only cost you $20 I would say its worth it, but it might cost a bit more than $20.
