[Now Needed!]Upgrading a GPU

UPDATE

I can't believe it! My 6870 went on the fritz ... not totally dead, but 2D was showing anomalies under both Windows & Linux ... luckily I have a 8600 GT, which I just installed.

------------------------------------------------------------
I'm always on the lookout for a new GPU, where price meets quality. Unfortunately to out do my AMD 6870, it appears the price is $350.00 and higher.

For example, the Radeon R9 280X with a 384 bit memory interface is at that $350 mark. It also performs a little better than the GeForce GTX 760 for the same price. However, I do want a GeForce card this time around. So far, money permitting, the GTX 760 might fit the bill, which apparently runs better at higher resolutions.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated !!

Re: [Now Needed!]Upgrading a GPU

I run a GTX 760, and it runs nearly everything well. Payday 2 has some issues, but runs un-stuttery when I limit the frame rate to 45. Other than that, I can run Crysis 3 maxed out really well. I've had nothing but problems with the last AMD card I had, but the 760 has been 10 kinds of awesome.

IN short: GET THE 760!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: [Now Needed!]Upgrading a GPU

I just checked the 760 prices and they seem to have dropped ~$50; average price is now around $250-260. Now need to decide on a brand, but most point to EVGA ....

Thanks Sandy!,

[EDIT]
-------------------------------------------------
I think you're right about the 760; in price<-->performance. Even the Titan GPUs can't hit 60 fps maxed out in Metro Last Light. Damn!

Games my card struggles with include; Metro Last Light, Witcher 2, GTA 4 series and The Saboteur is completely broken on AMD cards. A short list to be sure, definitely an ode to the 6870.

[/EDIT]
-------------------------------------------------
I'll have to pass it by the 'bosses' first :D ; hoping x-mas
