QuestionShould I upgrade my GPU? Pin

That has been the question I have been asking myself now for a while (a good few months). I was trying to remember when my PC last got an upgrade, and then I remembered that I had written this article, and it was almost 4 years ago!

I currently have a GTX690 which is no real slouch, but video rendering etc. just takes too long.....I almost cracked last year, then of course the rumours surfaced of the GTX1080ti was on the horizon, so held off and held off.

Now it is here and shipping soon, I'm like, will I go for it or wait until the other card makers start shipping their own variants of the card. The motherboard has a 16x PCI_3 which is good, so no issues there. I was going to also leave the GTX690 in it, but that would mean with dual GPUs the PCI_3 slots drop to x8 mode. That itself shouldn't make any significant difference, so no biggy....the only issue might be the PSU...and you know what happens then, it is the wrong connectors or cables don't reach in the tower... D'Oh! | :doh:

You know what its like though, you go out to buy some milk, and end up with a new car or a TV or something like that Laugh | :laugh:

If I'm going for it, I am definitely doing it before I leave this country, I can buy it and ship it in from USA with no import duty here[Qa], compared to pay the higher UK price or import duty in the next country[Cy]...

Maybe next week.....Unsure | :~
