GTX 760 to be exact.

Whats the problem?

I only have two games where having such a card makes sense. Arma 3 and thief.

I need more games to justify.

What upcoming games this year for the PC are going to be graphic intense.

Witcher3 is one

Witcher 3 as stated above (the graphics look unbelievable, especially considering the scale of the game).

Tom Clancey's the division should be graphically demanding (its running on a true next gen engine and it looks amazing visually).

Watch Dogs and Dying light are also running on new engines and early gameplay looks very promising visually

Isn't the division going to take till next year to come out?

Dying Lights... They recommend(although this can change) a AMD 7900 series card or nVidia GTX 670 with >2GB RAM. If I play this with my GTX 680, it looks like I will have to OC it as much as possible for the best experience.

It wasn't suppose to be but knowing ubisoft, I wouldn't be surprised if it is delayed another year

What about already released graphically intensive games?

Crysis series, Battlefield 4, Witcher 2, etc

I think Dying Light looks like it might tax a system pretty good.

Didn't you kind of do that backwards? Personally, I wouldn't buy a new graphics card just to play two games. Why not wait until the games come out, then buy the graphics card?

I'm looking forward to Dragon Age Inquisition. Yeah...that's right. I said it. Even after the mess (at least in my own opinion) that was Dragon Age II. Graphically, it looks to be a card pusher, but only time will tell.

Same here. No need to buy a new graphics card unless the current one is struggling.

I bet there are some games that have already been released that you haven't played yet that will look good on your new card.

Have you ever played Borderlands 2?

It definitely looks promising. Although I will warn people that the screenshots up on their Steam store page are indeed bullshots. I don't really have anything substantial to back that up but if you have been a gamer since 2005, you can easily tell. I've watched several gameplay videos where the game looks nothing like those screenshots. On the other hand, Dying Light does look noticeable better than the Dead Island games and the game world looks to be significantly larger. Overall, it looks great.

Borderlands 2 looks pretty good, but it is hardly stressful on a GPU.
