Hmm, According to GD stats, performance will improve by around 66%. And why do you think it's not worth the upgrade?

Really? Do you have a site i could compare actual performance? Because i only Base mine via Game-debate comparison. And via GD it says 66%. I'd like to see an actual as i'm really planning on buying this. For me, anything above 50% is good.

ok. happy to help you, mate! ;) p.s. a good 80+bronze psu with 600W is the best choice for most of the high end rig out there! my rig, (i7-3770k , gtx 770, a couple of HD, SSD, 8 gb ram 2400 mhz) use about 450-470W full load! averagely the consumption is about 400W!! a 800W psu (or more) is required only if you have at least SLI/crossfire GPUs. p.s. +1 for you!:)

Yeah, I am too. I can't find any reason not too. It's 200, 250$ on Newegg and it's not far off from the GTX 770.
