Question Worth upgrading from gtx 580 to 680 - 03-27-2013, 14:46 | posts: 3

I've been thinking about upgrading my video card from a gtx 580 to gtx 680. I game at 1080p resolution. I held off from upgrading before because of gtx 780 rumors, but now it looks like gtx 780 won't release until late this year.

Here are my specs:
i7-875k @ 2.93
8GB Ram
Sound Blaster Zx
Evga gtx 580sc
64 GB SSD
1 TB HD
Asus 1080p monitor

Is it worth upgrading?

Overclock your CPU and RAM first.

^this. (well oc ram isnt a must).

had to lower a few settings recently with farcry3 and tomb raider but my 580 is still doing ok.

p.s @tk ooh a 40% increase would be sweet. just have resisted this long..can hold out some more

thats a rough estimate based on my 680 clocks, you could also end up getting a beat 680 that doesnt oc too good
