More about gpu recommend buy
  1. nothing will bottleneck that.

    however wait a few more weeks for the dust to settle with the new cards coming from amd, they may cause a price war and you get to buy a better graphics card for the same money
  2. Best answer
    GTX 970 for better GPUs or AMD cards you need better PSU.
  3. What's your budget? I just upgraded from 560 Ti to GTX 970 and been happy with that. From what i've understood the GTX 970 gives the best value for your $, at least in the case of NVIDIA GPUs. If money is not the issue, you can also go with the 980. 980 Ti might require a new PSU.
  4. You can just squeeze by with your 600 Watt power supply and get the GTX 980 Ti, assuming that you have a quality brand.

  5. and yet i have to say it again. wait a few more weeks, there's nothing wrong with the 660 i assume, so in a few weeks time you can either get a better grpahics card at the same price or the one you plan to get cheaper.
  6. thanks for the advise guys , gtx 980 ti is good for me? i dont plan to change any of my parts except the gpu only

    With 980 Ti you will be losing around 10% GPU performance because limitation of your CPU,and Dx11 but with DX12 your CPU will stop limit GPU :)

    Titan X have similar performance to GTX 980 Ti
    Test in Witcher 3 Game

    they said gtx 980 ti is the best for me without any problems

    so what is really the best gpu i can use for my current processor?
  9. Even if you OC your CPU this best GPU for you will be still GTX 970.
    On 980Ti you will not get max possible performance but still will be faster compared to 970.
    I recommend OC your CPU to have best possible performance from GPU * this do not matter which GPU you chose :)
    About OC your CPU you can increase multiplier + 4 and get x38 - x42 (34+4+4) & depends to used threads this increase you CPU performance around ~11,7% :)

    jsut to be say ,sorry sir but im scared of overclocking it i dont want to decrease my processor's lifespan

    so what's the best gpu for me without OC'ing anything

    CPU life spawn is around 30+ years even if OC decrease it by 25% your change it before die :)

    Well, he can't really OC because his CPU is locked.
  13. You CPU is not locked is “limited unlocked” :

    Check my earlier post and links about OC :)
    And you can read about your CPU gen here http://www.anandtech.com/show/4083/the-sandy-bridge-review-intel-core-i7-2600k-i5-2500k-core-i3-2100-tested/3

    I didn't say he couldn't I said "he can't really"
  15. Nobody asked the most basic question:
    What is your monitor? If it's a 1920x1080 monitor, you don't need anything above a GTX 970 or the Radeon R9 Nano when it launches.

    1366 x 768 is my max resolution of my monitor
  17. Then get the best one you can afford. Even a relatively modest GPU like the GTX 960 should be enough for your monitor.
  18. Buy GTX 970 + Monitor Full HD :)
