Upgrade from GTX 560 to 750Ti ?

#1LordVyPosted 2/23/2014 11:56:04 AM
I was reading about the new GTX 750Ti and it seems to offer ok performance for 160 in Belgium.
This is my 2 year old setup:
GTX 560
i5 2500k (not OCd)
8 gigs RAM
and I may be looking at a new graphics card if it would be worth it.
Is it worth to upgrade to a GTX 750Ti or something else reasonably priced, or would I be better off waiting? Would upgrading bottleneck my CPU (too much)?

The 750ti wouldn't be much of an upgrade at all.

The cards offer about the same level of performance, but the 750Ti uses a lot less power. Your CPU is a match for any single graphics card on sale now. A decent upgarde would be a 760 or better. Or wait till the more powerful Maxwell GPUs arrive.

Huh, so 2 years later in about the same price range as the original if I remember, there isn't anything that's significantly better? That's kind of weird I guess.

The GTX 760 will completely outclass your current card. A cheaper option would be a GTX 660. The X50 cards are basically entry level gaming cards. Going up one level just from the X50 to a X60 gives a huge performance increase.

Budget cards are budget cards, they don't increase in power as much from generation to generation. Also the 750ti is not really increase in power, its a more efficient card. It offers similar power to the prior gen GTX 650's, but the GTX 750 does not require a 6 pin pci-e power connector like your old card does now. It makes it a great card to drop into any POS computer to get some decent gaming performance.
