I just ordered the GeForce GTX 760 graphics card for my computer.  During the past couple of months I have considered three different cards to upgrade my current video card which I bought sometime in 2011.

GeForce GTX 550 Ti1923current
GeForce GTX 750 Ti3695$114
GeForce GTX 7604976$170
GeForce GTX 7706165$250

GTX 550 Ti vs GTX 760 Compared

I decided against the GTX 750 in that the improvement was not as much as I wanted despite the low price of about $115.  I wanted at least twice the benchmark rating as before.

I decided on the GTX 760 because it was on sale for $170 after a mail in rebate.  The amount of improvement for the GTX 770 felt a bit like overkill and for the cost to performance ratio I just could not justify the purchase.

With my current rig the gpu is definitely the bottleneck, but if after I install my new gpu I still have some of the same fps drops then I will look into over clocking my cpu and gpu and if that does not work then look into getting a better cpu.  If I go the route of a better cpu I plan on holding off for a while like maybe a year before doing so.
