760 X2 or 980?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I have a dilemma I've recently been having and that is if I should upgrade my graphics card. I currently have 2 windforce Gtx 760 4gb and they work amazing but the problem is that I love playing at high resolutions and I'm not sure these babies can keep up.

That being said I was wondering if getting a 980 will be any better since I game on 3 2560x1440. I am even willing to get 2 980s if I need to.

As games are getting more and more demanding, I'm just not sure if my cards can keep up. Any advice would be appreciated... Thanks for your time :D.

Edit: I almost forgot to ask if I should upgrade my cpu. I currently have an amd fx 8350 and I was thinking on getting a intel i7 4790k.but with upgrading cpu also comes upgrading my motherboard which is even more money. Help on this would be great.. Thanks again :)

Well, when you game, can they keep up? SLI 760s would be similar to a single 970. 

 

I would replace your cards WHEN they're not longer enough, not now (if they're still enough right now).

2 980 will be much better then your current 760 but since your resolution is really high i think you should be able to go ultra on most game without aa around 60 fps. Also what is your motherboard ? The 8350 and 4790k performance in game are not that far apart.

It really depends on the game, but a 4790k will outperform an FX8350 by quite a bit, and if he goes with SLI 980s an FX8350 would bottlneck like crazy.

 How can that be a bottle neck. And the fx 8350 in game only lose about 3-5 compare to the i7 with 980 sli
