Will I notice a large difference when I throw in my new video card?

4gb is wasted on a 760 unless you go sli (and play at higher than 1080p)

GFAQs boards are way too cliquish TC, don't worry about it. You bought a fine card, you could have probably gotten a little more performance for your money, but it doesn't change the fact that you're going to enjoy the improvement over your old card.

However, in the future, ask about upgrades and stuff beforehand. As you may have noticed, this board loves suggesting parts and arguing over their merits.

An R9 280x absolutely blows that card out of the water, for the same cost, which I would have personally gone with. Planning on upgrading from a EVGA SC 580 myself.

Wouldn't have wasted money on the 4gb version. You will literally net jack s*** and all in performance for that. Even if you have a 2k monitor you would rarely even come close to that 2gb buffer on the regular version and at 1080p my 580's 1.5gb of vram hasn't even been maxed out on any games I've played. Its not really future proof because by the time 4gb even becomes a real issue your card will be obsolete and old anyway.

Also rumor has it that nvidia was going to drop the prices on the 770/760 next month so you probably should have waited for that and saved yourself 50-100 bucks. Heck you could have just grabbed a 7970 for well under 300 and that would have destroyed the 760.

While I'm sure you will enjoy the card and it will provide a great experience over that 560 but I wouldn't have gone that route. You didn't get best bang for your buck, that's for sure.

What if we said no, you wasted your money? Would you feel bad? What would you do about it?


Always gotta love the topics where we give feedback after the purchase has already been made. :D

ITP: providing information is RONG AND BADD.


No, but telling someone they should've gotten something that doesn't meet their requirements, after the fact nonetheless, doesn't add anything to the conversation. Information is good, trying to instill buyer's remorse to satisfy your own opinion is not.


670 > 760 is not opinion.
Saying "you could get 670 at that price" is not instilling buyer's remorse.


Could have also gotten a 7970 3Gb for less than that price.

OP did say specifically that he was looking in the GeForce 7XX series, which excludes both the 7970 and 670. However, this being a hardware board, of course people are going to suggest alternatives at that price level. And I do not see why that is such a bad thing. Why should you not provide this information? If OP wanted to he could always still switch and return this videocard. If he does not wan to , no harm done. He bought a very decent videocard for a fair price. It seems that OP can only become better off with the info provided. Not worse.


OP probably didn't realize that 6 and 7 series cards use identical hardware. Information provided.
But, according to you, that is a bad thing to do.


Uhh, I was on your side. I was arguing that even though OP specified he was looking at only the geforce 7XX series, providing him with information can only make him better off, not worse.
