That's very strange. Both of my EVGAs clock above 1200 out of the box, they run BF3 for hours at 1270Mhz with no voltage bump, maybe got lucky when I hand picked them that's why I consider them a great choice, I had two 680 lightning and also went to 1423Mhz on air, so why wouldn't I recommend something that I'm satisfied with? Never had Asus cards, so they come in third place.

MSI for durable and custom components, EVGA for quality and great service and Asus, in that order.

Has anyone on the forum: GTX 770 thread purchased the Galaxy GTX 770 Hall of Fame (HOF) edition?
If so, any feedback on that card? -Davis

Basicly this yes.

Its hard sometimes to not forget why we need those cards. Its to play the games with eyecandy and the difference between a 50 and 100 mhz OC is not really gonna change it for real.

Still its those damn benchmarks and the need u feel inside to get juuuust a few points more.... biggrin.gif

Something else, I might have to get rid of my 770s, i probably gonna switch over to a mini ITX case wich can only fit one card and i need the fastest card there is in it.

Do you guys reckon 2gb Vram is enough for 1440p? considering buying a qnix 27 120HZ (Local seller has one confirmed @120HZ) for 50 dollars more than ebay.... SOO tempting.
AA off? Mainly Bf4, skyrim, dayz, lol, dota 2 things like that...
Ive seen reviews of the 770 on ultra with AA maxed out on 1440p but who cares, I need high FPS to utilise the 120HZ and the reviewers dont put high or medium settings so I dont know what kind of fps I will be hitting. Out of all of those games BF4 is probs the most intensive I would guess?

Otherwise
I could go for the 4gb 770 but I did see that link earlier. It showed that there was actually no difference even at 5760x1080...? What to do what to do...

Thanks in advance, personal experience is always appreciated as well
post #4085 of 9125
Personally i would go for more than 2GB Vram for 1440p, also regarding games to come

Well, especially since you want to run everything at 120FPS or more, i'd say no. Not for the latest titles like BF4, Watch Dogs, GTA V and maybe even CoD Ghosts.

What do you recommend? Would Sli help? I was thinking about it as its my birthday coming up soon... or is the 2gb vram going to be my limiting factor here?
post #4088 of 9125
I don't think you will be very limited atm with 2GB and 1440p but regarding changes in how games are made u could hit a wall in the not so far future and then u would have to upgrade sooner than u want

EDIT

SLI wont stack VRam

What is your budget?
If the price difference between a 770 4GB and a 780 3GB isnt too big then...

Lol I know Vram stays the same - 2gb even when SLI. It was like the first thing I actually learnt about SLI'ng...

I just want to have my system future proofed through university (next 2-3 years) so the extra VRAM might be a better option... ah budget. Lol the baine of my existence.

Well a bit complicated - going to sell one of my screens for 175, buy a new one for 385 so 210$ already.

Sell my graphics card for 500$ and waterblock for 50 so 550 from those two. I get 340 NZD dollars to spend plus whatever else it costs.

Cheapest 780 in NZ with WC blocks available : 947 - Gigabyte GV-N780OC-3GD GTX 780
Cheapest R9 290x in NZ with WC blocks available: $805 - Sapphire Radeon R9 290X HDMI DisplayPort Dual-DVI 4GB

I know your all probably Nvidia fanboys (agreed, I am partial to them now) but what do you think of the 290x? I heard the memory is of bad quality and its not a good Oc'er... it is cheaper than the 780 over here though.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2013/10/28/crunching-the-numbers-should-you-buy-an-amd-r9-290x-or-nvidia-gtx-780/

This shows at 1440p the 780 trumps the 290x... IDK mad.gif. Should I get the monitor and see what I can do with high or medium on those games and then decide?

has anyone seen anything about how much vram is being used when you run a particular game or is there anyway to find out also?

EDIT:
OR

Wait for gsync monitors (apparantly asus will have one is q1 - 2014) but they will probably be at 1080p. Or wait for AMD's mantle api to see if that improves the amd lineups... I only got my 770 like 2 months ago so...

947,- for the 780?? how much $ or € is that?

With al these pricedrops the difference between a 780 and a 770 4GB version is pretty low here.

And the r9 290x is a pretty nice card. I also expect alot from Mantle so going AMD is not a shame smile.gif

U can see in apps like afterburner or gpuz how much VRAM is being allocated. Some games do tend up to just allocate all VRAM without really using it all but u could check it out in an app like that
