Time for an upgrade -
| posts: 342 | Location: England
Hello everyone, it's that time of the decade again. I'm looking into getting one of the forthcoming GTX 700 series.
I'm thinking of the GTX 760 TI but not entirely sure about the performance gain I'd be getting coming from my OCed 460.
I'd like at least twice the performance FPS wise.
Now I know I'll be CPU bottlenecked in some games, especially Skyrim, as I'm already bottlenecked when running at stock CPU speed in some areas. Bun in some games such as FarCry 3, I'm only using 50% maximum across any core at any one time even at stock clocks. So I figure twice the GPU performance will be optimal.
Besides, I plan to upgrade to Haswell later in the year anyway.
Another thing I'm after is cooling. I don't want my new GPU to be any hotter than my 460 as I rum allot of games with my CPU at 4GHz and it can get a bit toasty; up to about 70C, so I don't want any additional heat from the GPU.
Thanks for the help.
