I currently have an EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked card, but just noticed the fancy offer to buy a GTX 950 and receive £70 in-game 'value'.
My 660 can run most of the games I throw at it at highest settings (i.e. 1920x1080 and setting everything else to its highest), without really faltering. Games like Metro: Last Light can struggle sometimes, but considering the card is three years old, I don't mind too much...
However, I need some help working out whether paying for a new card is worth it at the minute. If I buy a new card, I plan to sell the old one to make back some money, so the price point of around £150 is my limit. I've been thinking about the EVGA SSC 950, because I'm happy with EVGA (unless there is another card which is really worth changing to).
Is the 950 a worthy upgrade after running this one for three years? Are there any cards that would be better? (I'd prefer to stay with nVidia, but I'm open to suggestions). I mean, the card runs fine at the minute and probably will for a few more years to come, but perhaps it's good to keep up with the newer tech?
FYI, the games I currently play or plan to play in the near future are:
- World of Tanks
- War Thunder
- SM's Civilisation 5
- Metro: Last Light
- GTA V (planned)
- Rust (planned)
I can't imagine the 660 would be too happy with GTA V at near-highest settings though? I don't mind losing some quality for FPS, but visuals are quite important!
