Hey guys, this is the last decision I need to make. And it is between:

Tri-SLI EVGA GeForce GTX 780 or Tri-SLI EVGA GeForce GTX 680 (4GB)

Is there a huge difference between them both? is it worth the 100 dollars more each card? Should I go with SLI instead of Tri-SLI? Help me decide! smile.gif

Both setups will be water cooled, running a single 27" 2560x1440 monitor, might switch to a triple monitor setup in the future at 5760x1080.

I never seen benchmarks yet for Tri-SLI 780's, I would have loved to have seen it frown.gif

For 2560x1440, honestly 2 780s will be plenty of power, save yourself some money

Here you will find all the reviews you will ever need! smile.gif http://www.overclock.net/t/1393783/various-gtx-780-reviews/0_50

A 780 is 20-25% more powerful than a 680, so its well worth the money! Overclocked it surpasses the stock Titan, and stock vs stock its roughly 10-13% slower from what I have seen.

So go for the 780's and have fun! biggrin.gif

EDIT: Two should be more than enough for your resolution, and scaling is not as good with 3 cards compared to 2. But both will kick every game out there!

It'll more than likely be enough for surround too...though most people I know, once they get a higher pixel density monitor, they rarely go back to lower density ones

This is two GTX 680 in SLI in 1440P




Add 15-20% on top of those numbers and thats is more or less where the GTX 780 is
