Video Card Question
Hi

Hopefully there is someone out there who knows about these things, because I sure don't.

I currently have this video card:

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti SuperClocked 1024 MB, GDDR5, nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Chipset (900 MHz) 1GB DDR5 (4212 MHz) Dual Display DVI-I/Mini-HDMI PC Express 2.0 Graphics Card, DirectX 11, SLI Ready (01G-P3-1563-AR)

I will be running an application that recommends the following video cards.

Minimum Spec:

1GB dedicated GPU, or embedded Intel HD 4000/AMD R5

Recommended Spec:

2GB Radeon R9 200 series, or NVIDIA GTX 650

Premium Spec:

2GB Radeon R9 290 series, or NVIDIA GTX 970

Could someone tell me how my existing card compares to these, especially the Premium Spec? If I need to upgrade it, is it as simple as pulling out the old card and putting in a new one? And....does the old card have any monetary value for resale or would it be considered obsolete these days.

Thanks so much for your help.

RE: Video Card Question
Its sitting between Minimum and Recommended.

What application and what resolution are you running at?

Card is worth next to nothing used, maybe $20 to $30.
