So, I think I'm going to take a chance on the 780. Just means someone else gives a home to the 680 Lightnings I've come to love over the past few months
Hahaha you sound like an absolute slave to impulse with the above dph!! If I find a game that I cant play at 1400/7000 SLI then ill worry about upgrading.
What sort of monitor setup do you have DPH? 30" 1600p?
Slave I am
I've had this 3390k/680 SLI setup as-is for a bit now. The upgrade bug is starting to make my skin itch. I just hope I can find my credit card by the time the 780 is released, little bastard grew legs and ran out of the room.
No, I'm still on 1080p. I can't go back to 60hz, so I'm waiting for even a 1200p 120hz to upgrade. I know there's some Chinese ones out there, or ones you can OC, but I'd rather wait for a trusted company in the US. But there's a lot of games that really need SLI to even just get close to over 100fps when maxed out. Hitman isn't recognizing SLI so I need my one card at 1424/7000 just to get around 60fps average. Even SLI in Black Ops 2 running at over 100fps puts a 70-80% load on each card. So, what I'm trying to say basically is that even at 1080p you need a lot of horsepower to enjoy a 120hz monitor. Well, I know some people don't. But I don't like to compromise often so I want the game maxed out and
be able to get over 100fps. So, yes I'm only at 1080p, but even with a series like COD that's always been considered easy to run, if I had Black Ops 2 on one card I wouldn't be getting the framerate I want. So...I got the upgrade bug and it needs to be fed

Anyone interested can PM me. I know I won't be able to keep track of everyone that posted something in the thread, so it'd be better to just PM me if interested
