Default Buying a new GPU

I want to upgrade my GTX560TI any suggestions? My budget is 450$ and I was thinking about the GTX770.

What resolution do you play at? The 770 would be the way to go if you want your budget mostly spent on GPU. I if you are at 1920x1080 resolution I would probably save some of the $ and go for the just released GTX760. That said you would not be going wrong with a 770.

My resolution is 1920x1080 and my budget is only for a GPU so I dont mind spending it all.

770 would be my shout... should last 3 years at that res and then a whole re-build..
That said there is nothing wrong with saving quite a bit and going for the 760 / 670 when their prices drop a lil bit more from the 760 release.
The 760 is allot of performance for it's price.

If he's only going to play at 1080p, there's no need for SLI 670s. That said, they do match the Titan for performance

There's more to gaming than the fps reported by benchmarking.

I went from 680 SLi to one Titan, would not go back. Titan is smoother, feels more natural.

There are games in which they are definitely needed, but due to some crossfire hassles this time, maybe next time I'll go with a single card and play demanding games later on.

But now I'm at 2560x1600 so maybe that would'nt work as well with a single card either

If you're at2560x1600 then SLI 760's is definitely a great, cost effective option. Get more than the power of a titan, for half the price!

I ran SLI 660's and didn't really notice any of the SLI 'problems' which are said to exist. YMMV. I fully intend on going SLI 760's gain, vs buying a single 770/780.
