Next step up from 560ti? Very possible 120/144 hz monitor, too

Here's how it is, I've been gaming with a 560ti since summer of '11, a recent thunderstorm fried the HDMI part of the card (it can still be displayed through DVI or VGA, but that's not the point), but I've been looking to upgrade anyway. What would be a good price/performance card to upgrade from a 560ti?

I'm also interested in a purchasing a 120/144hz monitor (up from my 23in 1080p), if anyone has a reputable one to recommend, that'd be cool too.

CSGO pretty much occupies most of my gaming time, but I still get around to playing other games too. There's really nothing I'm particularly looking forward to in terms of games, partly because of ignorance and partly because of CSGO.

If I don't end up waiting for the 8 series, I'll probably just be getting a 760 or maaaaybe a 770 from my current 560 ti non 448 edition.

I went from a 6600GT to a 7600GT, to a 9800GTX, to a 560ti. So from my habits I skip a couple generations between graphics card. I think that's a pretty good habit.

If you wanna game at 120fps the gtx 760 and 770 will prolly not be powerful enough to get that framerate on more intense games.

Yeah, I forgot about that part. It really depends on the game, but if you consistently want to hit 120FPS in the vast majority of games at max settings, you'll probably need two graphics cards.

760. The 750ti is the same level as the 560ti so yeah. 760 or 770

Roughly how much better is the 760/770 compared to 560ti
#8Lucavi000Posted 5/16/2014 8:41:51 PM
probably 40-50% more?
