Fallout 4. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. Star Wars Battlefront. Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

Well, this is a certainly a short article, as the five reasons for performing the upgrade are already listed above.

Oh, were you expecting something more substantial?


However way you look at it, this is the time of the year when the best games are being released, and it’s not just about finding time to play the games, but also making sure that your rig is well equipped to handle all that resource intensive graphics and pump out smooth frame rates.

Bear in mind that you would probably need to upgrade several things before you run into a performance bottleneck, as a dependable graphics card is just one of several factors that can help gamers achieve peak performance. But before you start doing everything short of buying a new machine, here are some reasons to look at a GPU upgrade.

When 2016 rolls in, many gamers will be focused on something incredible and unreal at the same time, and that is virtual reality, which come in the form of VR headgear that whisk you from reality into a simulated environment.

And the biggest name on that list is the Oculus Rift, the messiah of VR gaming. And for the upcoming consumer model of that device, the GeForce GTX 970 is the recommended model to power the next level of video games.

In other words, there’s no need to fear that you will need to make another GPU upgrade, if you make the right one now.
