Fair enough. Another guy has since said 780 too now; I guess re thermals (SFF = small form factor I think).

I looked at prices in the US. I see $450 for a 290, and ~$500 for a GTX 780.

I think if you are going only 1 monitor you should still probably side with the 780. The performance is there for either card, but the 780 does offer better thermals and power usage. Mantle could be useful but a 290 doesn't really need Mantle to play games at 60 FPS.

Also most of the $450 290's I see are used... so your mileage may vary. If the 290 was at $400 I'd opt for a 290, but your looking at a used 290 or a used 780 for ~ the same cost, or a new 780 for ~$50 more.

I don't think performance is the deciding factor as either option will give excellent performance. So your looking at warranty, thermals, power, form factor...

he will be playing 1440p at 96hz.

Both are good at that price - but again SLI 4GB 680/760/770 would be a MUCH better solution

4gb gk104 cards are entirely pointless.

As much as a rebuild would be fun, I don't know if thats feasible. I wouldn't have to get a case as I have a CM 590 that has been heavily modded. smile.gif that and my PSU might need to upgraded to a higher wattage/amps.

Yes I am probably going 670 SLI 4GB myself as I would also like to play this game at 96Hz.

Why in the world, with current 290 prices would sli on those be a better option?? Currently the cards you listed are at most less than $50 cheaper than a 290. So, if you're getting multiple cards, you could get the current generation or last generation?
post #22288 of 29735
Sli only if you own one of the cards, single fastest you can afford is the way if going from scratch imo. Regardless of the brand, whichever suits your need and budget.
post #22289 of 29735
For any 1440p solution SLI or Xfire is better than any single card. It's been proven time and time again yet people keep spewing such nonsense.

Back to BF4 I did the unthinkable ... I started using DMRs again. LoL. Looking for a new challenge to keep me interested because Ghost Recon Phantoms and Insurgency are taking all my attention.

Fair enough - PS SLI/Xfire + whole system takes give or take 550w at peak.

Look up benches of the cards I listed as see how it absolutely destroys the 780/290.
There's absolutely no question of that setup beating single cards. But the VRAM limit is the problem and/or power (although that shouldn't be a problem for most with over 500w PSUs) and/or space (as mentioned above).
I have a VRAM limit and that quite literally is my only bottleneck - I couldn't careless though, as I don't play with deferred AA - I spent a good 15mins with a friend analysing the differences between 1440p vs 1080p vs MSAA on @ 4x vs OFF.
Ended up being:
@ 1440p (what bluedevil and myself have) - there's such minute difference that you have to glue your eyes to the screen to see the pixels being poorly represented near edges.
@ 1080P it was more more noticeable, but not something I would be "worried" about.

Indeed - agreed, but hey people prefer single cards - and I totally get it and would prefer a single card myself.
But when you're on 1440p - wanting to play at high FPS, you're going to need that RAW performance - something a single card can't do (at the same price of course) - take a 780ti - and the 780ti destroys it.
