Disagree. 770s are hitting 8000mhz on the memory when overclocked. 680 will not get close
post #432 of 757
considering I got an ASUS GTX 680 DC2 TOP for $360 outta pocket and $385 total shipped, I'm all good.
the GTX 770 is killer but I'm right there with it and that's good enough for me @ 1080p.
still might grab one or a GTX 780 down the road a bit.

This cards are a nice little boost from the the 680. Basically the same card with better memory. 680 owners have no use for this card unless they just want something slightly different and newer to play with.

I sold my 680's and planned on buying two of these just for that purpose. I decided on a single 780 for now as it is all I need for 1080p 120hz. I am going to put the extra $175 up to use on my upgrade to a 4930K when they release.

I really don't think you're in a position to judge anyone.

You replaced 2 7970's with 2 Titans, 7970's ain't all that cracked up to be if you're willing to spend $600 more PER card + Water blocks to replace them. Or, since it was worth it for you to spend 122% more for 35% more performance, why wouldn't people choose a 770 that is FASTER than 7970GE for $50 Less?

According to Anand:

That should hold you over 'till Maxwell. thumb.gif

I like the way you think.... smile.gif

I'm thinking I can always try a BIOS flash with mine and it's 10 phase VRM might be able to take the memory hike.
if not then grab a GTX 7 series and have another go.

Texture quality often has very little impact on performance, as long as there is enough VRAM to hold it.

You can test this yourself with many games. Just see what sort of performance hit you get when changing the texture quality settings.

The debate between the 7970GE and the 770 is similar to comparing apples to apples, The 7970GE has the extra memory and bandwidth that helps on surround but the card really is not strong enough to go beyond 1600p on its own. That is without going multiple cards.

Single card performance with AMD is superb, whenever I go crossfire, it has been a lesson in frustration. Registry Hacks, tweaks, everything must be utilized to get the desired performance. I have always been successful in dialing in a crossfire setup, but 10 hours of tweaking to play a 10 hour game is not efficient.

The people here with crossfire setups, usually are very talented with hardware and software. They can dial Crossfire down over time to be similar to SLI.

My future AMD graphics use, and I have 2 AMD systems now, will always be a single card setup.

10 hours? lol. i shut down my pc with a 7950, installed the 7970, booted, went to CCC enabled crossfire, and played BF3, then C3, then C2. that was my first time.

Read his post again, he's not talking about Single card setups like yourself.
