On a single 144Mhz 1080P screen not every game no

If you want 144 FPS in every game you are looking at two video cards

as i said, i might opt to go for dual 680's and as long as i get 60 + fps, i'm happy

Think that two can do pretty well for a year but since i cant see into the future i cant be 100% sure of that

One main issue with the 780 is it might be out of stock for a good month or two on release. Because its that great of a card.. at least for me it is having skipped the 600 series.

So your target is 60+ FPS in games without maxing AA at a resolution of 1080p. For that, I'd recommend getting a single 780 after returning the 680.

Here's why:
- You get more VRAM (3GB vs 2GB)
- No hassle with two GPUs
- No need to wait for SLI profiles, SLI patches and/or games to be optimized for SLI setups
- No need to worry about scaling of two cards
- Smoother gameplay with single GPU than with two
- Performance similar to Titan after overclocking the 780
- Option to go 780 SLI if/when you need the performance
- Better thermals than 680 SLI
- Better acoustics than 680 SLI
- Lesser chance of hitting the VRAM limit with 3GB cards than with 2GB cards
- 3GB VRAM will be more useful than 2GB when the new console ports come out
- Better resale values than 680s
- Newer, longer lasting GPU setup. 780s are just being released, whereas 680s are being phased out.
- Going 780 SLI will let you get very close to fully utilizing that 144Hz refresh rate limit

Having used a Titan for the last couple of weeks, I doubt that you will want more than a 780's performance for the experience you seek. But if you still think you need/want the performance, there's always the option to go for 780 SLI. That way, you get all those extra things for the same amount of money. Its a total win-win situation. Besides, I see no reason to use a generation-old hardware when you can buy new ones.

I think I've answered a lot of your questions and hopefully have made your decision a lot easier. But if you still have questions, feel free to ask. thumb.gif

Its rumors that the GTX 780 will have 3 GB not confirmed yet

i'm still gonna wait and see how to 780 compares to the 680(both the price and performance), but yeah, i'm aiming for 780's. technically the 680 isn't old-gen as the 780 hasn't been released yet. to become old-gen it would need a successor. wink.gif

More vram is always better as current and future games will be upping the eye candy. Like I've previously posted, wait until the 7xx series to drop and then see how it is. You can also do a little searching on how more memory effects games. I personally don't upgrade unless I'm getting at least 50% performance increase for just about, or less of the price I paid.
