You should mine vertcoin instead

What should I upgrade to? I have a GTX 780, made some gains with coins myself, can use the profit to get a better card

I think the rule is 1080 60fps, 580 and 1080 60 fps+ go 1070. I just saw it at a glimpse and thought why not. I did make money on my coins today and cashed out. Its bonkers again today, especially with LTC

and why Vert?

Its easier to mine and I believe the price will go up a lot in the new year.

Its also super easy to set up, google Vertcoin One Click Miner. The miner is made by the people who created Vertcoin and manage it so its legit and you get great hash power from it

Is the RX 580 a lot stronger than a GTX 780? My 780 has been pretty decent for me. Also how is AMDs recording/streaming software. Is it just as good as shadowplay?

I think it's on par with it but I really don't know. The 580 should be atleast twice as fast as the 780 iirc

Well from the few things I just saw, the 580 = 780

Yeah Anandtech bench shows the 580 is slightly ahead in some games, and blows it out in others but for the most part just a minor improvement :/ I'm itching for a GPU upgrade though. Need something that records 1440p in 60fps(GTX 700 series cant do that in shadowplay)
