    This in a nutshell.

    I need to buy a new graphics card to use G-Sync (already bought the upgrade board from Nvidia US). GTX 580 is less than the GTX 650 Ti minimum :(

    That's a damn shame, the 580 is twice the card the 650 Ti is and yet it's now reaching obsolescence.

    Didn't Ben say he would consider buying a Nvidia GPU specifically for the PhysX demonstrated in The Witcher 3?

    I'm sure he said that he would never buy a GPU for just one game though?

    Just read it again we're both right!

    I do enjoy the bells and whistles of PhysX personally even though it only includes a handful of games in my library. Don't think I'd return to AMD cards anyway since my Nvidia experience has always been trouble free!

    Bought a stock GTX 760 from Scan for a song 6 months ago to play Metro. Haven't fiddled or upgraded since. Just enjoying playing for once.
    Makes a refreshing change to not keep pissing around fiddling with pointless overclocks and money wasting 'upgrades'

    I wouldn't replace one with a 650 Ti either :p I'll see what's out in ~2 months.

    The only time I've bought a new graphics for one game was when I wanted to play X3:Reunion. In fact, I bought an entire new computer to play just that game :D

    I used to be like that. 8800GTX to GTX 260 to play Batman AA, to 5870 to play BFBC2, GTX 580 on launch week to play on 2570x1440 monitor.

    Now I don't buy graphics cards, now I just buy even more expensive lenses to get that one photo, then store it in a bag rest of the year.

    I foresee my next hobby to be something more expensive.......

    Start collecting fine art - that's a great way to spend a lot of money, which you will probably make back again with profit when you decide to sell it ;)
