GPU upgrade for my new z97 build..

Level 7
Ok, so, I have got the Maximus VII Hero, ordered the i7-4790k, and need to decide if I am going to keep my GTX590....

Or, do I upgrade...?

If I sell my 590 for £200-£250 I can put to another £160 towards a `NEW` card, Nvidia only please.

Budget for £400 max, with the forcast to add another identical card for SLI later this year, what are `your` suggestions...?

Single monitor, 24" - 1080p (for now), going up to 27" - 2560/1440 when I add another card, good amount of Vram too, (3-4gb)

Has the GTX590 still got some fight left for another year..? currently suffering on Vram 😞

Thanks all..

Right now your 590 does all that you need it to do with that screen resolution 1080p.

Wait that extra year and then get the next generation of graphic card.
