    fucking idiot, intel is hurting your wallet lmao. you should have gotten the Intel core I5 3570 or the AMD FX 8350. Both are around $100-150 cheaper, depending where you bough it, Than you should have bought a better video card. The HDD doesn't really matter, the ram is fine. Damn bro you're an idiot lolz.

    My thoughts on this.. i am a bit late with it.. but if you ask me, don't sell a good working system that still does everything, even gaming for a 680 if you already have a 570… sure it would be faster, but yeah.. hope you get my point πŸ˜› you could also wait for newer generations.. or just untill games start to run like donkey crap πŸ˜›

    The scaling you get with an sli setup with the 680 is actually preety great, so personally I would say go for it since its almost double the performance (depending on the application)

    For the most part, 7970 and GTX 680 are more or less on par with each other. 7970 wins some, 680 wins others.

    Better to just look at what these cards offer. Nvidia offers things that AMD still doesn't. I'm not talking about Physx either, you can force AO in lots of games with Nvidia. Plus Nvidia has better drivers and control panel software, now they have GeForce Experience that helps a lot with optimizing games. AMD still behind with drivers and software, but the hardware is good.

    Those games don't need a powerful gpu to run. Crysis 3's requirements are way up there in the high-end spectrum of configurations. I suspect that Metro Last Light would be the same.

    Get a 7970 and overclock it if possible. Once that's done, it'll still outperform an overclocked 680, not to mention you'll save between $60 to $100.

    7970 is a better deal
    and the ghz edition outperforms to

    It depends how much you use the machine. If you still use it a decent amount then it might not be worth selling. But, the 680 will be a huge improvement over the 570

    Windows 8 isn't even worth the 39 bucks, I would just buy it to sell it. But I would sell the old computer.

    No offense, but that rig is screaming big gaming PC company ripoff. You might want to consider selling that card and getting a 7850 or up if you are serious about PC gaming. If you are just gonna play a game here and there, you should be alright, but likely at 720p for good framerates. As Rich as said before, if you can plug in a Nintendo cartridge, you can replace a graphics card.

    I just upgraded to GTX 680 from a GTX 280 and + 8 more gigs of DDR3 I am blown away.

    7950 is better value for money than both the 7970 and the gtx680. I'd keep the second pc tbh

    The 670 is the best option just because you own one? That makes sense. (Not really ;D)

    <—- See mine there?
    Sooo moral of the story, buy a 670. It's the best option.

    7970 beats 680 in some, and 680 beats 7970 in others… Whether someone wants to go with Nvidia or AMD, that's personal preference. They both have their own pros and cons… Nvidia's got better drivers and software, plus you can force AO in lots of old and new games with Nvidia (can't do that on AMD yet). AMD's much better with video playback, they definitely have more options in that category.

    I've used both AMD and Nvidia, and I prefer Nvidia. Not to say I hate or dislike AMD.

    The 680 is far better than the 570 but let's be honest here for a second. The GTX 570 can probably play all of your games pretty well right now. What will you gain from upgrading? Perhaps you will be able to turn the graphics settings up a notch in some games but is that notch worth the $400-500 that a GTX 680 would cost? Is it worth your second PC? Personally, I think not.

    It still consumes more power and it's larger, however.
