SLI Titans?biggrin.gif Seriously tho, I wish I could, but, I have 2 670's 2gb and run Crysis 3 quite nicely around 60 fps on 1440p. All my other games BF3, BL2 run beautifully too. My cards are only 980mhz stock, so that gives you some idea(i do slightly OC for Crysis 3, the others, no) There are many 670's that have better clock speeds, and are good value. Obviously SLI 680's or 690's would be better, but are quite pricey. My SLI was around $ 750 a few months ago, so there is better value around. In hindsight I probably rushed my decision, and should've waited a little, but I am still extremely happy.

Happy to join biggrin.gif I've actually had my Catleap since March. I just recently bought this Auria, and I can't decide which one I want to keep. Chances are I'll end up selling the Catleap.

I have decided to block my gpus.. it is a good thing I found the water blocks for my Classifieds I was concerned about the head since I purchased another one for TRI SLI

I am hoping that I get much better FPS with 3 than I did with 2. I had to promise I am done for atleast a year lol got to love the wife.

Thats whats I promised when I got the 690, and now 2 Titans and a new X79 based system later I tempted to get a 3rd Titan. Sometimes I think we need rehab for this.

Hi, I'm Jesse, and I'm addicted to computer parts....



Thread Update:

iARDAS was kind enough to share the docs with me so that I can update all the lists. I will start working on that once I get home from work.

Is the gaming area any different in size in 1440 vs 1200? Do I see more of the screen, or is it just more pixels?

Edit:

I just realized what a foolish question it was...

It's not actually that foolish of a question... I've seen more than a few people get confused by this.

Basically with a larger resolution you will see more detail and with more clarity since everything is composed of more pixels.

To actually see more of your surroundings you have to increase your aspect ratio. Either a 21:9 display, or 3x 16:9 / 16:10.

Compare the 1080p monitors to the 1440p and above, you'll see a smaller dot pitch which contributes to the better resolution (thinking .3x to .25x and smaller)

To get you started, the korean 1440p monitors are extremely well regarded; especially here on OCN. I went with a Dell U2713HM because I got a really good deal on it which closed the price gap between the korean monitors and the Dell. Also, I get a warranty on my monitor and a pixel perfect guarantee. However, I heard a computer shop called microcenter in the U.S. has their own model called the Auria and it has a proper warranty (IIRC). There are also a few offering from Samsung and HP, I believe, but they are fairly expensive.

As for GPU, price/performance AMD is typically better and you will get the extra Vram without having to spend more cash like on the Nvidia side. Personally, from what I have heard about AMD (driver support, Microstutter) it is not the option I would personally take. But hey that's just me, if you have had experience with AMD go that route and you'll be perfect with a 79750/7970. On the Nvidia side, I think you will have to spring for a 4GB GTX 670 in sli. But that's to max out the games. If you're ok with lowered settings, grab one 670 and OC it; when you feel you need to upgrade you have the option to SLI. From results I have seen on benchmarks, it seems that 3GB gtx 660ti's in SLI are a good option, but I have heard that you may run into problems with its memory interface (?) being so low (192-bit). If you're comfortable with AMD, it does seem like they are the better choice for higher resolution gaming.

I may have a slight bias towards Nvidia, but I am just passing on the knowledge I have acquired so far.
