Upgrade from GTX480

Recommended Posts

I thought my video card died today (turned out to be the monitor) so I started looking at replacements. I've had this card for more than three years and it's served me well. I'm going to stick with EVGA because I've had good luck with them. I was looking at this card. 

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked 4GB 

Any opinions on a good replacement would be appreciated. I'd like to keep it at around $400 USD. Thanks

Good choice for the money.

If you never plan to go multi monitors you could save $50 or so with a 2GB version.

I ordered the 4GB card. I figured since my 480 was three years old it was probably next to go. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for the response.

Don't forget Prepar3D...it can and will put those 4GB to use, even on a single monitor setup.

Bob,

         That's one of the reasons I got the  4GB card. I'm sure at some point I'll make the move to P3Dv2.

I've got the GTX770 installed along with the latest Nvidia drivers. Any suggestions on set up in FSX would be appreciated.

DX9 or DX10?

DX9. I'll probably skip the DX10 and got to P3Dv2 when it's a little more mature.
