GTX 580 transition to Titan SLI or 780 SLI - Page 2

post #11 of 99
If you have 2K to spend, why not 3 780's?

My vote is on the 780's regardless and you could even upgrade something else with that extra 700.

If you're happy now, I don't see the point in any of this.

You might be wondering why I asked this question. It's quite simply really. I am very happy with my current GTX 580 Sli performance and my overall system configuration.

However I would like to know what the GTX 780/Titan SLI could do or provides a significant advantage over my GTX 580 Sli and primarily what games would that be. I understand Crysis 3 is one of those cases but to be honest it's the Crysis 1 2007 debacle all over again.

One of my favorite games that I enjoy is the Stalker series and I am wondering whether going from a 580 Sli to a Titan/780 Sli setup will provide any worthwhile or substantial boosts primarily in that series (Call of Pripyat).

While I did mention that money was no issue I am not seeking to spend money just to have the latest and greatest. I am looking and evaluating whether it is a worthwhile jump that warrants this upgrade.

So why don't you just read the site reviews...That will help you more than just hearing a bunch of opinions that you will probably keep questioning... http://www.overclock.net/t/1393783/various-gtx-780-reviews

780 sli is the perfect setup...

reason:

1. $700.00 savings, perf close to sli titan.
2. I called gtx 780 the perfect card due to the fact that it's faster than 7970/680 at the same time it has 3 gb vram + 384 bus to accomodate mutli munitor setup w/o running out of vram...
3. It is the best upgrade coming from a lesser gpu. ie..6970/570....

I'm not really questioning but rather trying to get a general idea of what to expect. I've checked out the reviews and their games that they test are of no real interest to me. They seem to omit the Stalker Series which I consider quite demanding for hardware especially Call of Pripyat. In addition in the SLI reviews they don't really compare against older video cards like the GTX 580.

I am particularly interested in the performance of a 780/Titan SLI system in Call of Pripyat/Arkham City against a 580 Sli setup. The newer games are not of much interest to me at the moment other than perhaps Metro: Last Light and GTA V (which hasn't been announced yet for PC).

I've noticed the difference of performance between a 780 vs Titan in some cases is 10-15% generally. Is that an accurate figure or is it undervalued ?

780s give you 90% of the performance of a Titan for 65% of the cost.

But since you said money was no objection, you should get the best then.

If you have money for Titan SLI, why not go for 780 Tri SLI?
post #18 of 99
Unless you are running a Surround setup where more than 3GB could come into play, I would get a 780 SLI setup and save $700 in the process.

Not when it comes to the Gigabyte GTX 780 Windforce OC teaching.gif

780 Windforce gives you EQUAL performance of the STOCK Titan out the box, and ONLY 5% slower after being OCed vs the OCed Titan for 65% (maybe 70%) of the cost AND rhis is without voltage tuning either card thumb.gif

See for yourself whistle.gif ... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Gigabyte/GeForce_GTX_780_OC/29.html

Why spend $2k for Titan SLI while you can save $700 to $600 for a 780 Windforce OC SLI setup and basically have Titan performance at stock and just a tad bit slower when OCed? Being 5% slower after OCing is not noticeable biggrin.gif

The only answer I can think of is for braggin' rights winksmiley02.gif

Even if money isn't an issue i cannot recommend SLI Titans as SLI 780's are so close in performance it not logical for the sake of a couple of %. SLI Titans is there for those that use ungodly resolutions that demand over 3GB of VRAM.
