I am new to the forums, I would like to ask for help regarding upgeading my GPU.
My computer is for gaming (arma 3 online a lot) and graphic designing (photoshop and more media programs).
I am currently able to run most games on 1440p but I do need to reduce settings and sometimes even run in windowed mode to 1080p like in GTA V for it to run smoothly and still remain watchable...
There are 2 major questions that I would like to ask and thank you in advance for the help!
CPU: I7-3770 non K @ 3.40Ghz
GPU: Nvidia GTX 660Ti
Soundcard: Asus Xonar DGX
PSU: hec win 600W
Main monitor: 1440p (1 monitor for gaming only, no widescreening)
Secondary monitor: 1080p
Please ask for any more inforamtion if missing
1. I am thinking of upgrading my GPU into a 970 Nvidia card, I would like to keep it Nvidia for shadowplay to work and PhyX.
1(A). Will this Graphic card be ok PSU wise, bottleneck wise (CPU) and my 2 monitors? Also is it worth upgrading to it from a 660ti? will there be a large increase in performance.
2. Are there any other recommended Nvidia cards that are out there for less money that can still kinda match the 970? I will be happy for 5-15% less efficiency if it costs a lot more.
Again thank you for your help and have a nice day! :3
