GTX 680 SLI vs GTX 780 - Page 4

post #31 of 38
Feeling pretty small with 2 GTX680's in SLI ,now that the Titan ,780,&770 have all come out. Seeing as our family needs a new car ATM ,I am in no position to start buying new Graphics cards.But..........I have not even OC'd my 680's at all . So ,I am wondering ,is it time to start OC'ing my Reference 680's ,to get my framerates up there?? If so ,is it even worth buying some aftermarket air coolers for my 680's now?(for like maybe $100 each) or is it too late in the game,to try and cool them further to really push them? This is a cruel hobby to be involed in ,as graphics cards move down the list so fast !!!!!. Not to metion Haswell ,coming and smacking my Ivy setup.With Z87,to stomp my Z77 too.

No 6 GB 780 is in the works. JacobF from eVGA confirmed it. It would interfere with the Titan. So assume ALL 780's going forward to be 3 GB.

Also, EVGA TENDS to be the FIRST OEM's from nVidia to know the roadmap is going ahead. So I don't know if I can trust your 'NDA Sources'.

680 sli will carry games for a good long while. nothing to 'feel small' about with your cards.
haswell is not 'smacking' your ivy around at all.
z87 supports 6 sata3 ports and 1600mhz memory natively. z87 is not 'stomping' your z77.

there isnt a real reason to upgrade to haswell from ivy. the only reason to upgrade from sandy to haswell(or even ivy) is pci-e 3.0 support.

and what do you mean sli 680s are ranked 23rd? the 770 is an overclocked 680.

I just meant in general ,to watch your cards slide down the ranking list so fast! Not sure where 2GB 680's are ,but ,things move quick in this game. I must say ,I have never been happier with any Mobo,than I am with my Z77 Sabertooth. What a board!

Yeah the sabertooth is a good looking board indeed! But from what I've heard from a lot of people, it's a bit overpriced though. I just upgraded to a 4670k and I was thinking about getting the sabertooth board when I was at micro center. But after some research, I decided to go with the gigabyte UD4H and save some money instead.

Heh I feel for you. If you get new parts at release date, you are on top for some time. But not for long...

I'd say this hobby on the other hand is very exciting, as new technology will probably always be faster and/or better, but on the other hand, things move even too fast at times. PC builds are not an investment of tomorrow. It's not the most expensive hobby though if we don't go completely crazy. I always have felt that I must have the best or near-best parts as this is another of the two hobbies I have and I can fully enjoy.

Lately I've gotten a bit bored of upgrading my computer all the time. Now I have hard time finding any time to play games, since upgrades and testing takes all the time I have. If I find a good game for example, I can easily get hooked to it even if I have to use minimum settings and not-too-good FPS. Now I hope I can steer away from any upgrades for a while. Those last words... wink.gif

Anyway, GTX 680 SLI can play any games just fine, don't worry about it. thumb.gif

I'll tell you that you don't even need an upgrade at this point. Just because there's a newer card out does not mean that you have to automatically waste money on a better system, just so that your system doesn't fall behind generations; because in actuality, that's what this is about. You just want to spend cash on something as meaningless as staying at the cutting edge of every GPU generation. In actuality, a 680 would not even break a sweat in 1440p, if it's in the correct environment. (mobo, ram and cpu) It may go under 60FPS in some games at certain post-processing FX and anti-aliasing setups, but in most cases, the 680 is more than enough.
