Not bad but I will stick with my GTX 680s SLI for now

Yea its not worth the upgrade for you, but it would be a decent upgrade for someone who is sporting a older gpu(400,300, 200 or earlier series) though.

Guys, do you think it's a good idea to sell my 2K$ gaming rig and buy a PS4 instead or buy this new card to replace my 670? I just don't know what to do. PS4 seems to be a beast with all those launch titles...
M-M  +   589d ago
Why not stay with the gaming rig and get a PS4? =).

It's a really smart idea but I guess if I'll buy PS4 my rig will just stand on the floor and collect dust cause there's no games coming out (except BF4) which will look and play better on PC (if I'm wrong correct me please)
I thought of this several months ago and now I'm really stuck with this decision...
EDIT: why disagrees? Please name some multiplatform next-gen games which will play better on PC!

Sounding like a stealth troll coolmast3r.

Name some multi plats that will play better on PC?

Probably most of them on a GTX670. GTX670 is a powerful card and will likely deal with any multi format releases without problems.

PS4 is considerably slower compared to a good card like a GTX670 than say Xbox 360 was to a 7800GT.

Buy a PS4 for the exclusives when it gets them, but I can't imagine that multiplatform games on PS4 will beat a good PC in the next year or more.

Xbox 360 and PS3 never managed to beat PC on their early multiplatform games.

For example Condemned, Oblivion, Quake 4, Prey, Call of Duty 2 etc etc if you had a good PC at the time they were all easily better on the PC. I see no reason to believe that won't be the same for these consoles but actually more in favour of PC than the generation before.

Thing is were they however much extra this would cost you over shall we predict the PS4#s price a $500 which it will likely be less than? I can't see it being worth 100-200 euros more. But it's all irrelevant really- coolmast3r I'd keep what you've got and buy a ps4-after all the main reason from your comments I'm assuming you want a ps4 is for the Sony exclusives? And although AC4 and Watch Dogs will look better on pc-even if only marginally as I don't think the devs are bothering to but the maximum graphics setting sfor PC too high from some of the stuff they've been saying- saves money ofc (both these games have exclusive missions on ps3/4) then you might aswell have both, then you can pick and choose what you'd rather play on PS4 or on your gaming rig if they are multiplat games....

if i was you i would sell that 2k gaming rig and buy a 1k cheaper gaming pc, you can also afford to buy a ps4 + many games

"PS4 seems to be a beast with all those launch titles..."

Care to mention some of them, most of them are multiplats.

Sure it has handful of 8 hour exclusives that may interest you, but really that's not alot of games. Specially considering PS4 has no BC, hence essentially must make a library from 0 games. Infact when such consoles with no library launch you are most of the time waiting for the next games to launch so you can play again, since you already finished the handful of games it launched with.

In comparison PC has more than 600 AAA games from this gen along. Thousands more if you add in previous generation or all the emulation PC is capable of. There really isnt a comparison in terms of games library.

Why do you want to replace your GTX 670 to begin with? its an amazing card and more powerful than the PS4.

I would recommend you buy multiplats and pc exclusives on the PC and get a PS4 for the exclusives that will launch with it.

Next year maybe when the 800series GPUs launches you may think for a GPU upgrade for your PC, until then enjoy your GTX 670.

Tbh I much prefer Sony's exclusives to most multiplatform games, I mean what your talking about there is raw power vs um...(I can't think of the word lol-when i remember word im looking for i'll edit this :P ) anyway otherwise I agree, keep what you've got and get a ps4 for the exclusives/games like watch dogs and AC4 that have exclusive content- plus some games like the new Batman Arkham: Origins are apparently not coming to next gen consoles sooo I'll be getting it on PC... :p same for splinter Cell I think. Oh and just to say they've already got Killzone, infamous, knack, drive club as confirmed ps4 exclusives at launch and Watch dogs and Ac4 have exclusive content, and this is before the've announced most of their games... :p So in fairness they do have quite a few exclusives and although not confirmed for next gen MGS5/Ground Zeroes haven't been announced for Pc's../ I'm assuming it'll be coming to ps4...

First of all, you aren't going to get well thought out responses on n4g about Sony vs anything.

Second, I would never trade a good gaming PC for any console. I have no idea what you're talking about no games. I get more enjoyment out of steam than both 360 and ps3 combined and then multiplied several times over.

Games like Orcs Must Die, Planetside 2, Neverwinter, and Day Z provide a ton of entertainment for almost no money. The deals you get, the indie developed titles, the mods, the community. It's really unparalleled. And you can bet this year will be no different.

I think the PS4 will be good, but if money is an issue, i'd stick with the rig you've got. especially since you aren't going to be able to resell it for what you paid.

I think he might be reffering to wanting the exclusives like killzone and infamous and the unannounced exclusives that are bound to be announced within the next year lol-personally I'd keep the gaming rig and buy a ps4 at some point for thos games...
yeahokchief  +   589d ago
can't go wrong with a ps4. it's going to have a lot of indie games too.

i'm planning on buying a cheap pc and a ps4 later this year. and a wii u if nintendo ever drops the family nonsense and gets serious about making games for it.

only game i will play on the pc will be dota2. how much longer are they goign to take to do the final retail version of dota2?

You could look for a second GTX 670 for SLI, which will almost certainly be discounted as new cards come out.

Also, have you decided that a single gaming platform is the only option? I've never felt I had to choose between my gaming rig and any of my consoles. If you have the money to purchase a GTX 780 to replace your GTX 670, why not keep your GTX 670 and buy a PS4? Then you can play games for both platforms.

keep what you have bacause your 670 is more than good enough and you can get a ps4 or buy a second 670 and run them in sli and you will still have enough for a ps4 DO NOT SELL YOUR GAMING RIG IF YOU LIKE GAMING YOU WILL REGRET IT.

buy a Ps4 , i don't know why people say Pc is not too expensive
M-M  +   589d ago
So $644-$773 just for a GPU? No thanks lol, I'm sure it will be considered by many when the price drops.

I am a huge coolermaster fan But if you ware very much a PC Gamer you would know the ansew to that and to say that "there's no games coming out (except BF4)" is daft try looking youll find them.
As for naming any console games next gen multiplatform that be better than consoles... Well I grant you what sony has done is awsome but consoles will never give you the free option to adjust graphics options. That will always add the edge.
Im not here to slag off ps4 or next gen right! I welcome it very much so i cant wait to see what ps4 can do. And i also know My PC Rig is not gonna have shoddy ports but console fans some are assuming they get 60FPS maybe they will who knows? But i know with the options of graphics settings I certainly can.

As some have said If you really do have that kind of a rig why not buy a ps4 if its collecting dust well you kinda put your foot in your mouth because the 670 not even 12months old. Im running a 7970 Looking very closely at the PS4 Perfect combo
