Current rig posted below.

I am thinking about just making a slight upgrade at the moment. By that i mean:

windows 8.1
Samsung 840 Pro 128gb SSD

is it worth getting a new video card at the moment?

Current Rig
Mobo: Asus p8z77-V
CPU: i5 3570k
PSU: Corsair HX750
GPU: XFX double D 7950
Cooler: H100
Ram: 16gb g. skill ripjaw (ddr3 1600)
OS: windows 7 prem
SSD: 64gb crucial
Harddrive: western digital 500gb, Seagate 1tb

Thanks

You don't need one. But you have an ATI card so I mean, there's room for improvement there.

I'd switch to nvidia, but that's just me. I also assume you play at 1920x1080? If so, then not really worth an upgrade unless you want nvidia specific features or you want to go for ultimate performance.

Rofl. Don't let the people here fool you on amd. The 7950 is still a great card. You don't have to have a nvidia gpu to play games at high performance.

That's a useless upgrade.
