So I have this:
http://www.zotac.com/products/graphics-cards/geforce-700-series/gtx-760/product/gtx-760/detail/geforce-gtx-760.html
And I am thinking of upgrading. What should I do? I play mostly steam games like bioshock, skyrim, COD, etc.

it's going to use the cpu more efficiently. once we start seeing games made for dx12 it will be a new generation of performance. 

do some googling around, there are people on YT who have windows 10 with dx12 and the beta nvidia windows 10 drivers.

Eat Here! This is an amazing Mexican restaurant. I love the food and the atmosphere is great. Its nice but not too nice so you shouldn't have to worry about what to wear. So good!

They have a lot of different kinds of burgers. Some strange combinations but it is fun to try them out. The place looks really nice and has a patio to sit on outside. Service is pretty good but can be a little slow at times. Not a bar to go crazy at but still fun on game days

The food was nothing too special. It did taste good but it didn't seem to stand out to me. They have TVs in every booth so if you want to watch a game then you won't miss out. There isn't a ton of space in there and it felt a little cluttered. Overall if you want decent bar and grill food and maybe chill with a few friends and watch a game then this place would be a good choice

This place is by far the best BBQ in Ames. The food is pretty good. Not the best BBQ I ever had but still excellent. So cheap too! I always recommend that people go to this place if they visit Ames. Definitely an awesome restaurant. Try the ice cream or shakes too!

This is a very nice place. The atmosphere is very high class. The food is good too. Not cheap but the experience make it worth it. Has both a small cafe style area and a full restaurant.

This place has very good pizza. The sell by the slice late at night. Not a huge place so large parties may want to go to a bigger place. Also delivery isn't super fast. The pizza is definitely very good though. I think it is the best local pizza in Ames.
