@dubbed you already had a 680 though you picked up reasonably so was sensible for you. Each to their own but to buy two mid range cards from scratch is not for me personally, I did that with the hd7870 when they launched, should have bought the best single at the time 7970/680 and cfx/sli later. This time bought the 780 lightning after the last price cuts and am about to go sli with those. Be in a much better position than if had bought 2 x770 for example. Again though is one of those things could be debated forever, pay your money and take your choice imo, then be happy lol.

And on bf4 I may try a few rounds shortly, getting bored now.

For 1440p/96Hz I'd go Mantle (Radeon).

yeah indeed - although I did contemplate selling for a single 780/290 myself, but then realised the SLI option comes out on top (and also in my case ended a lot cheaper)

Lol, you're comparing sli 680/770 to a single 290? What about 2 290's? Because the price difference of the two is very small. So you can pay $700-800 for sli 770 which is a spiced up 680 with slower memory bus, or pay $700-$800 for 2 290's which would stop the pieces out of sli 770.

Ugh, started playing BF4 recently and yes my performance may be really good with Mantle but I struggle to get Crapbuster to work with my PC and that gets me disconnected from servers quite quickly then on top of that there is like nothing to play without the addon packs which cost about £/$10 each so I am looking at this game and Origin in general and thinking to myself is this "game" really worth all this...

No, neither is it worth hundreds of $/£ to play in on in gpu's so here is hoping to the future lol

@Totally Dubbed They are too slow. I should have been more specific, a single 4gb gk104 card is pointless. Nothing that uses 4gb vram will run well enough on it for it to matter. (Unless we're talking 3rd party HD texture mods, or other nonsense people do).

It's weird you say that - any source of this?

Countless threads on tech forums would be a start. Have you really never seen that debate?

i know here in the USA you can buy 2 new zotac 4gb 670 for $274 each. $550 for sli 670s. used 670s ive seen go for $225-250 each.
and both the 680 and 770 have a 256 bus
