Buying a 770 to replace my 570 worth it?

Or is it just a small increase, and not worth the $300.

It's a good jump but the 570 is still a good card. I would wait for the 800 series because they are more powerful and use less power. If the 750 and 750ti are like that then the 800 series would be really good cards for the money.

770 is a much better card. But the 570 can play anything still, right? Might as well hold up until it's not cutting it anymore, and buy something better than the 770 for what you'd spend on the 770 now.

It wouldn't exactly be wise to go with a 770 right now when the 280x performs about the same for ~$50 less, unless of course you care about Shadowplay/PhysX/TXAA and/or watch movies on MPC-HC with a lot of post-processing.

Friend of mine recently made the jump from a 570 to a 770 after being jealous of mine (I went from 560ti to 770). He thinks it's worth it. As others have said, the 800 series is going to be a while. If you want a new card, go for it. If you're happy with the performance you're already getting on the 570, hold off.

Dont believe those above posters. Are they from Nvidia? The 800 series are better in performance and cheaper in both electric usage and price.

Of course it's going to be faster, but the wait might not be worth it for him. Another year wait, or an upgrade right now.

I think it is worth it since there are seriously no games this year that are re@lly worth playing.
