New gpu?
« on: May 22, 2014, 02:43 PM »
I've been thinking about an upgrade, just for the sake of doing it.  Anyone know anything about the EVGA Nvidia GTX 759 Ti?

I don't have much to offer, as I'm not familiar with the card. However, the overwhelming reviews that I've seen for that price range clearly show the Radeon cards as a much better deal.

Although I favor Nvidia cards (probably due to my comfort level), at this point I'd strongly consider a Radeon card.

Yeah, but my experience with Radon cards has not been great.  Still in the early stages of thinking and research.

FWIW: As far as Nvidia is concerned, I normally prefer EVGA cards.
