To SLI it, I'd have to get a new power supply. Only have two 6 pin connectors. I may as well leave it a lone then and wait on the 20nm GPUs. I pretty much just play FF14, the lower power consumption and heat would be nice... but it's kind of a moot point.


Not got any molex-to-6-pin adapters?

Don't sli. Probably just advise you to keep what you have.

The 770 has twice the processing power and over 30% more memory bandwidth.

The 780 has substantially more processing power and nearly double the memory bandwidth

I don't have any molex to 6 pin. In fact, I don't have any molex in the system since nothing I have uses them. It's a modular PSU, but I'm not sure what happened to the cables, we've moved twice since then so probably lost. them.

And no MrCube, it wasn't a 6gb module of DDR3, it was a tripple channel 6Gb kit, 3x 2Gb modules. One went bad so I removed the whole kit and gave the other two sticks to a friend who needed some RAM and kept the 12Gb triple channel kit.

I think I'll just keep rolling the 570 for a while longer, like when it's time to completely replace everything.

That's already a mid-to-high end card... I'd just SLI it, the 750Ti is a somewhat substantial downgrade..

Passmark is a terrible benchmark for GPU performance

Looking at some benchmarks, 750ti should outperform a 570 in most games. It definitely does in Bioshock inifinite. They're roughly the same in Crysis 3. Outperforms in Far Cry 3. Same in TW Shogun 2.

Basically, the 750ti is as good to slightly better. The 570 did do better in a couple of benchmarks I saw, but by and large the 750ti was the better card. That being said, this is not an upgrade worth making at all.
