Upgrading Gtx 770

Hey guys. So I was given an Evga gtx 770 about 2 months ago from an old co-worker. The card seems pretty decent for 1080p gaming but I'm thinking about selling it and getting a gtx 1060. Thoughts? Would it be worth selling this thing for $75-100 and upgrading or should I hold off? The 770 has 2gb of vram. Thanks!

Depends on games you play. I'd get a 970 instead though.

770 is still pretty capable for 1080 gaming. Not sure your money will be justified going to a 1060. If you really want to upgrade a 1050 ti would probably be more worth your money. I would recommend a 980 ti used instead, could be had for the price of a 1060.(at least in my area)

That's a decent upgrade, but won't punch you in the face and scream "THIS IS WHAT YOU'VE BEEN MISSING". It's basically just moving up a price tier. 770 = 960 = 1050. For a big upgrade, from a 770, try to jump to at least a 1070
