CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1 100T BE (winter 2013 upgrade)
cooler Arctic Freezer 7 PRO Rev. 2 (winter 2013 upgrade)

GPU PALIT NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260

HDD WDC WD20EZRX-00D8PB0
PSU ENERMAX 525W MODU 82+ EMD525AWT

DVD burner LG GH22NS50 RBBB 22X
Case Antec three hundred

EIZO Foris FS2333 @1920x1080 (summer 2014 upgrade)
It's now time to upgrade the GPU: a GPL trouble free one it's mandatory!!
What will you suggest me amongst the following ones?
Who is owning one of them?
Looking forward to your comments.
Thanks in advance

Both are more than enough for GPL at max settings at your actual monitor resolution (Nvidia Control Panel and in-game)

750 doesn't sound right though with a 128bit bus.
760 sure sounds a lot better to me but it's 30% more expensive.
I would suggest looking for a 2nd hand 570, people will be selling them to make room for a 970.
I just got me a GTX970 and they are everything you could ask for. Insanely good cards at fantastic prices. I am CPU-limited with my 5GHz 2500K. What!?

I will get a MSI GTX 970 Gaming as soon as its price will drop.
Why my PSU should be not OK for that card?

Not only, but having Spa67 to come already installed , I can tell you that a Nvidia GTX 285 do perfectly the job, here . Don't forget GPL is always and always CPU Hungry . I have an I 5 650 dual core 3.2 Ghz only .
With 1 or 2 GB of Video Ram on the GPU, that 's enough
We have been running test at GPLR with the team , Sky and Lee.
So, Spa67 , I can tell you, being the most demanding track for display, you can upgrade your card... but for other games ort applications.
No need to rush forward again and again, if GPL is your main demanding program.

So, don't worry, you are fine. I have an overclocked system (CPU, ram, GPU gtx 970) on a 550W psu. I never passed on FULL LOAD 370/380 Watts total system power consumption

I just installed my brand new GTX 970 and... it really rocks!!
Unfortunately the Nvidia inspector profile I got (based on http://srmz.net/inde...opic=6459&st=15) it didn't work with it and GPL crashes without loading.
I reset it and it now works without any issue. I read some topics about Nvidia tweaking but I guess they are outdated now.
Does anybody can share his .nip file or post his Nvidia inspector screen shots?
Thanks in advance for your great support!

Quickly tested and performed really good.
