    With my 560 ti 1gb and an i5 2400, some things have issues. I'm debating on whether or not to upgrade.

    Meh benchmarks of common games I play- (I have taken off the entire side panel of my case to reduce gpu temp)

    GTA V- on normal-high settings 900p runs at ~35-60fps location dependent. I absolutely can't turn up my textures, post process, AA, and a few others. 91*C GPU High, About 85*C Avg

    Battlefield 4-With a weird combo of low+med+ultra 900p to allow me to see soldiers at a distance, 50fps with/stutters in dense maps. 93*C GPU High, About 88*C avg

    Minecraft (yes, IDK why) - In dense areas, 35-45 fps with HUGE stutters down to 10 fps @1080p (can't change) and render distance 9 (about half of max) 78*C GPU High, About 70*C avg

    Firestrike: about 10 fps on gpu, 20-30 on physics, 6 on combined. using standard settings. 97*C GPU High

    Skyrim with watered down ENB: 40-45fps good, 30 on turn around/heavy movement. Using reduced res textures for high-res dlc (slightly better than vanilla) to avoid stuttering to death.

    Notes: No overclocking, as my motherboard (stock HP) doesn't support it at all. CPU never above 60*C High



    Lookin at something like gtx 970 2xSLI 4790k

    Have you taken the graphics card out and cleaned the dust out of the fan/heatsink?

    Yep. Even had it checked out by tech guys. Nothing to do about it.
