Over the past couple months I've been browsing Tigerdirect, Newegg and some other online retailers looking for a new video card. I want to upgrade from my GTX 460 SE which is having a hard time keeping up in games that I've recently purchased such as Skyrim, Saints Row 3 and Battlefield 3. I'm looking for a video card that will be well worth the investment, bringing a significant performance increase over my current video card. As of now I've steered towards the Nvidia 570 series, more so the EVGA Classified edition of the 570.The specs look amazing, the lifetime warranty is a keeper and it's nearly $150 less than the GTX 580.
Is the upgrade to a 570 worth it at this point? Is there a better price/performance option out there than the one I've found so far? I'd like to know what you guys think.
If you want to spend that much on a card, get the 7870. It blows the 570 out of the water, and uses much less power.
It's out already?
