    And is it still doing the business, or is it time for an upgrade?

    GTX 680 with a 770 BIOS.

    Works a treat, and overclocks nicely. Gotta love Boost 2.0

    Asus 760 - with a 1440p monitor it's starting to struggle with new titles such as shadow of mordor. I may help myself to a 970 or something similar within the next year. However, I don't play games that often and may decide a G-Sync monitor offers a better experience rather than having a higher frame rate.

    Asus HD 7950 Direct CU Top v2. Looking to potentially replace with a GTX 970 but still debating if I can afford it or if its worth it as my current one still delivers well

    Funny you should ask. I added a GTX 970 in my basket earlier today but I didn't complete the order. I want it, but do I actually need it? Not really, my GTX 760 is chugging along just fine. I think I'll try hold out for a GTX 960 instead.

    Old School 5870, memory is the main issue i find, plays just about well enough, i did recently buy a 290 and was not impressed with the performance gain so im holding out till the release of Star Citizen before my next purchase. I run multiple screens and should have 5 running when its released and i dont think the 290 or the 980 will make me happy at release tbh

    Re: QOTW: Which graphics card(s) do you currently use?

    xfx 7850 dd but the 1GB version, short of feel bad that I picked the 1GB version but at the moment I didn't had any more money to spare.

    Since I don't play the latest and greatest (I wait for GOTY and discounts so I get my hands on most games after a year or more) and I don't mind moving the settings down if I have to, it still does the job.

    MSI GTX780 Lightning - Doing the job very well, unless the game itself is borked (Ubisoft, I'm looking at YOU...).

    Will add a second one if I find a second-hand one and have the money, but would need a new PSU first.

    Recent upgrade from Asus GTX 670 Direct Cu II to MSI GTX970 Gaming 4G. The 970 is a great card, but the release vbios was bugged (intermittent fan at idle). Easy enough to flash, but shouldn't have needed to in the first place! Otherwise it rocks at 1440p

    7970 Reference moderately clocked. I usually skip a generation and buy high end so I'm waiting for a 390X or Nvidia's high-end Maxwell. The 7970 still plows through nearly everything at 1080p, superb card (albeit loud).
