going from ati HD 4890 to gtx 560
So consideiring this upgrade. A friend of mine sell his gtx 560. I play at 1900 x 1200. Currently I play Smite, Max Payne 3, BF3. Will play Total War Rome II, Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite. I know the gtx 560 can run them, but I wonder about the resolution I usually game on.
edit; looking forwar to fold on nvidia too!
Ty for your inputs.
Hmm for 10-15% improvement? In my books that's borderline unless you're getting the upgrade for free.
If I were you I'd save money for an upgrade on that CPU instead. A 4890 will keep up at medium-low but you'll start hitting CPU bottlenecks in most newer games.
Check the review here: Crysis 3 Performance Test: Graphics & CPU > CPU Performance - TechSpot
Crysis 3 on medium would eat your dual core :(
How much are you paying for the 560. This factor would greatly determine whether it is a warranted upgrade or not.
Agree with others that it would be cost dependant. I think I recall seeing 560ti in the BST for $100 so I would expect the 560 to be a cheaper than that.
EDIT: Actually there is a 560 for sale for $80 in the BST right now (which I think is fair). If you are getting a great price then the 560 it will be better then your 4890, but otherwise I would jump to something a bit faster for a better improvement in performance (gtx570, or my choice would be a gtx 650Ti boost or 660)...obviously it really depends on your budget.
on those games and a 3570k, I would skip the 560 and go for a real upgrade when funds allow. 660ti or better IMO
Of course if your getting the 560 for a very good price, then there is no reason not to. But it is a stop-gap rather than a replacement.
