GTX 580 transition to Titan SLI or 780 SLI

post #1 of 99
Thread Starter 
So with all these major launch cycles syncing up and coinciding I am contemplating and researching whether the jump from GTX 580 to Titan SLI or 780 SLI is warranted. Provided I am not at all interested in maxing Crysis 3 I'd like to hear whether this is a worthwhile jump or whether I should wait for the next architecture. Provided these cards are from December 2011 they work fantastic and still handle many games including Battlefield 3 MP at high visual quality.

If you don't need the power now, then wait until you find a game that you want to play at amazing quality. I have high hopes for AMD's next gen seeing as the 780 and Titan are pretty dang powerful.

I'd like to know why you mentioned GTX 780 SLI.

Simply mentioning 780 SLI is insufficient as you provided no reasoning behind this suggestion. Money is not the issue here.

Well don't consider Titan sli over GTX 780 sli if you do make the jump. A 780 is just too close to Titan in performance and is $350 cheaper.

A GTX 780 is a as good as it gets for the next year pretty much. When AMD does come out with something, it'll be the same or there abouts in performance. So no real need to wait for them to release a new card.

One GTX 780 beats out 580 sli, so imagine two 780s?

If you're happy with your 580s, don't upgrade. It's hard with all the hype though that is going around OCN with the GTX 780 release.tongue.gif

780 is much better bang for the buck. You can buy 2 780's for 1300 or 1 titan for 1000

If money is no concern, Titan SLI is obviously the choice. 780 SLI is also good choice also but it will be about 10% slower. They both have similar thermals and acoustics (for reference cards). I mean if you have the money, get the best.

Ok...so I'll ask you a logical question. Would you rather spend $1,300 for 780 SLI that can be OC'ed to be faster than stock Titan SLI or do you just simply want the overall fastest cards ($2,000 for Titan SLI) for braggin' rights?

BTW...I know you said money is no object...Just mentioned the cost so others can see wink.gif
