Windows 7: Should I Sell my Radeon HD 7970 3GB Twin Frozr OC Boost Edition

I bought the one he listed above. I originally bought this card used. Honestly I might consider upgrading my processor in the future.

I just wanted to the closest card to that, that I could with agreat warranty. I also wanted a slightly smaller card. This card is smaller, a little easier to work with and will give me a 3 year warranty. I bought this card used over ayear ago. From what he told me he was using this card quite a bit. So to me I'll get a brand new card with a 3 year warranty for almost the same money, and get a smaller card.

This 3.0 is already an upgrade from my old 2.4.

I play Diablo 3, elder scrolls online, Sims 4, and skyrim and all of these had great frame rates on the 760.

I understand most people would be better off with the card I currently have. But I think with the games I play, the value I put on size, and the value I put in the warranty it fits me perfectly.

Really appreciate the feedback though. Already got the 760 on its way. Got it for a great deal with.black Friday/cyber Monday. . $195 with a $20 rebate.

So assuming you get $200 for your card and get a new 760 for $280, we are out $80, and, for a resultant 5-10% decreased framerates at 1920x1080, (19% less performance at 1440P) but, the card is smaller, and new.

(I just can't really follow the reasoning behind this 'upgrade', but, good luck with your purchase)

See, it was black Friday/cyber Monday. I got it for $195 with a $20 rebate. So I should break even in the end. It definitely wouldn't have been worth it at $280
