I've decided to upgrade my gpu as the one I have (gtx 570) is rather old. After doing some research and bearing in mind the "thickness of my wallet" I have decided
for the gtx 960 which seems to be the best mid-tier card available; on every post that I read, the upgrade from the 570 to the 960 is highly advisable which suits me fine but,
I read as well, that the memory bandwidth (not the ram) is the MOST important feature in a GPU, now the bandwidth of the 570 is 34% better than the 960 and that has left me confused!...
IF the bandwidth is the most important feature to look upon then why is the 960 preferable to the 570 as the latter perfoms better than the former? makes no sense!
Can anyone please explain that to me and if possible confirm that the purchase is a sound one?
Thanks in advance,
PS: Should I acquire a NEW 570 instead?!
