Upgrade from a 560 Ti to a 750 Ti or wait?

#1Fez_WatleyPosted 2/18/2014 12:36:29 PM
So what do you think? I'm still happy with my 560 Ti as it plays Titanfall pretty well, but i'm not against upgrading for the cost. I was thinking about waiting for something like one of the R9s to come down in price if they're a lot better than the 750 Ti, but that price man.

I was wondering this too. I have a Geforce 560 (not sure if the geforce means anything hence why im putting it here). And I'm not sure if i should upgrade to the 750 or not. I mean yeah it runs titanfall just fine (heck i ran with pretty much what it gave me for default with everything on high and just turned off vsync and run it no problems) but I kinda wanna upgrade it soon.

Isn't a X50 series weaker than a X60?

I don't think a 750 ti would be much of an upgrade over a 560 ti.

If that first X is the same number, then yeah. The first number dictates generation, second is its placement in that generation. A 580 isn't stronger than a 770, however, because each generation is stronger so what used to be high end may be mid-tier now.

IMO the 750 ti is a beastly little card. It has superior core speed than my 760 GTX, is HIGHLY energy efficient and can play any modern game. Just don't expect max settings, fewer shaders and it bottlenecks with its smaller memory. However at $150 it can turn ANY stock PC into a gaming rig with its very small power demand.

If you are a budget PC gamer. Go for it! If you need a little more power, go with a 760.

That would be a downgrade, if you have boost version.

750 ti should never be referred to as a beastly card that is exactly what it is not.

I guess you didn't read into the "little card" part. I meant that as a slight. It is NOT a workhorse and I made that clear. At the end of the day it's a $150 card.

If that is this guy's budget, whatever. At times you guys come off like salesmen.

But it is. The only thing holding the gtx 750 ti back is the 128 bus. In fact it offers nearly half the performance of a single gtx 780. Yet it uses only about 50w on average compared to the gtx 780's 200w.
