From Msi Gtx 960 to ......

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I have a MSI GTX 960 2GB that I use to play at FPS and flight simulation games with  a 27" monitor.

Which video card I should buy to improve my FPS in new games like Sniper Elite 4? I should buy a card like GTX 1060/1070 or a GTX 970/980 are enough to play in FULL HD?

 

Thanks

Bye

This is my PC config:

 

CM690

MSI 970 Game

AMD FX 8320BE

HDWD CAVIAR BLUE 640GB

SAMSUNG SSD 850 EVO

8GB DD3 PATRIOT

Win10 

MSI GTX 960

IIYAMA ProLite B2712HDS

Razer DeathAdder

+1 I agree unless you are planning on playing above 1080P. 27" seems fairly large for 1080p, what resolution  are you playing at?

A 960 to a 970 is hardly an upgrade at all though.  The prices on 9 series will continue to drop for awhile, but if I were you, I'd get at least the 10 series.  Actually, I'd get the amd 480 if you can find one in stock and very near $200.

i disagree... by that logic my 7970ghz is almost as a gtx 970 seeing a 7970 is faster than a gtx 960

A 960 to a 970 is hardly an upgrade given the signicantly large price to performance improvement he could get going to a 1060/70 or 480, as well as being built for the next several years

the 970 is around 80% faster at $179 vs a 1060v1070 @ $280/ $449 as well as the rx 480 and good luck finding any of those cards in stock or anywhere near MSRP 

the gtx 970 is everywhere. i paid 970's selling for $300 all day long.

and btw not a fanboy im enjoying 2 7970ghz in crossfire that i picked up for $100 for the pair from someone desperate to pay $300 for 10% more performance lol
