I upgrade a lot so by the time I get two 780s I will probably be upgrading within 4 more months or less to new cards. I am just not sure if price to performance on the dual 780s is THAT much better than dual 770 lightnings. What do you guys think?

The performance would be higher with the dual 780s but what monitor are you gaming on? if your only on 1080p 60hz a single 770 will do on most games. Even with 120hz too. I havent played crysis 3 yet with the 770 but your monitor will be the biggest factor as to which gpu to get because honestly sli anything over 770 is gonna be overkill for most 1080p gaming.

edit: I just saw you have 2 60hz 1080p monitors, At least thats what it appears to be. Depends if you game on both screens, i would think the bezel down the center would be a pain in fps games but maybe you dont play those. Im pretty sure since they are just 60hz you would be MORE than happy with a 770sli but would still try just one, then when your bored go for a single 780 to get your upgrade fix lol i know it since i especially do that with cpu's and a little with gpus too biggrin.gif

I am itching to play a few games, while I can since I have a MSI 7970 I tossed in the system this morning from my brother, the coil whine on those cards is so utterly annoying I can't use my system.

Can the regular version of the 770 be OC to match the SC?

I think I might be exchanging the PSU, the Corsair CX600M for the 750W version or Thermaltake SMART Series 750W just to make sure I have enough juice for my system. I also plan to add an SSD soon and I want to put in another set of case fans.

Regarding the OC question, its literally just a 50mhz difference i think so the answer is yes, it will match that easily. Hopefully you can oc much farther though lol. So far im stable at 1256mhz on mine and think it will max around 1280mhz, 1320mhz crashes on heaven 4.0 extreme

This is my honest Opinion: Get what your money can buy... Don't fall for the "down the road" saying tongue.gif.... Get the best performance for your money. By the time you would be ready to get another 780, something better would be out there, and you will want that. When i got 660 SLI as opposed to single 680/670 (and another down the road), A LOT of people told me that was the "wrong" move, and i would loose money in the long run, but oh well... like you too, i upgrade A LOT.

i bought my 660 SLI for 400$, and i already sold one for 220$... And now i would be getting two 770's, and selling the other 660 for probably 200$. Did i loose money? No, am i upgrading like every other person? Yes, did i have Far Greater performance as opposed to people that went with a single 680/670? Hell Yeah! tongue.gif... 2cents.gif

Yeah I thought about 660sli myself but a single 770 will be perfect for a single 1080p 120hz monitor for me since I only really play bf3 and soon bf4. Now if bf4 is that hard on a system I can add another 770, which the 660sli would have been maxed out lol. Im a fan of running the single most powerful card you can afford, then sli if necessary but I didnt care for sli when I had a 560ti sli setup. New games are usually buggy which irritates me. I ended up switching to a single gtx 570 back then, later the 670 then sold it when I stopped gaming a while. The 670 was great I just didnt care for the noise of the FTW cooler so Im happy to now have a msi 770.

Your lucky to get $220 for your 660 though, I dont know who payed that much since new they are $210 on newegg for the asus ones. I actually got mine for sale at $189.99 at frys but returned it for the gtx770 lol.

ok more 670 vs 770 bf3 results, even though the 770 is mostly a 680...

both results caspian boarder 64p ultra, msaa off, blur off, 1080p

evga 670 ftw @ 1250mhz gpu and 3600mhz memory

Just received my EVGA GTX 780 SC this Friday, returned it and placed an order of EVGA GTX 770 SC with/ ACX
Buying the 780 for gaming at 1080p seems a waste of money to be honest..
I got tempted by it's cooler and how powerful the card is, saw the 770 for +$260 less made my mind about the return!
Hope to join when the card arrive..

Yeah dude a 780 is overkill, I mean unless your on a 120hz and want retarded high fps, the 770 is sweet! A $400 gtx680 with a bump in clock speeds, cant say no to that!

even the Asus with the DCii!

i wonder how they stack on silence and OC potential compared to the Windforce 3

Here is a comparison of the ACX, Windforce and Inno3d... its in German and its on 780 but 770 should be similar:

I placed an order of EVGA GTX 770 with/ ACX last night through Newegg and added rush processing to have this card on Wednesday. Now no PC gaming till Wednesday. I can't take my brothers MSI 7970 to game with the coil whine which is annoying. The 7970 is an awesome card and did great against everything I threw at it but I'm NVIDIA through and through having never owned an AMD card. They need to fix that coil whine with their 8 or 9k cards when they release.

I'm playing at 1080p on a single monitor, I take it the 770 will do well for a lot of games I throw at it?

they where out of the SC edition!! boooo!!! (i kind of dig the step up program)

i ended up ordering the Lightning!



770 for single monitor?? thats like using a nuclear bomb to kill 3 people ! ......... i game on one monitor 1080p and got a 770 too tongue.gif





(i had 3 different 7970, they are very powerfull cards but some driver issues and the coil whine where too much for me *not to mention they run HOT*) pass!)
