Planning ot build a new rig, trying to decide on the best GPU option.

This is what I'm thinking of my build
http://www.overclock.net/t/1396328/first-intel-build-2000-budget-advice-welcome

I save the most money by just getting another GTX 670 4gb, what would be the advantage of going 770 SLI or 780?

The advantage of buying a GTX 780 would be that you'd have the current "flagship card" and it will carry a lot of power. The GTX 770, will be good when the drivers are optimized, but from what I have seen so far, they aren't looking to hot. SLI scaling is dramatically improved in the 7xx series so that is a plus. On the other hand, twin 4gb 670's are dang powerful and a good price in comparison.

Going from 670 SLI to 770 SLI would be a marginal upgrade IMO, not really worth it if you can get a good price on another 670.

Now SLI 670s are more raw power than a single 780, but you gain a better memory bus speed.

My opinion? Get another 670 if you need it or stick with single 670 if its managing for you and wait for 800 series.

What 670 4Gb are you using now? What resolution are you using now or plan to use? Would be nice to know your current setup thinking.gif

Current set up, AMD BE 965

Current max resolution 1080p, might try to get a new monitor that support higher resolution later this year, no plan to multi-monitor.
Gaming wise, Skyrim with mods is probabely what would need the most ram.

So the improvement with going a GTX 770 SLI is margincal, and I get the most performance for money if I just get another GTX 670 for SLI?

yes. the 770 is an overclocked 680.
wait for prices to drop on either the current 670 or even the 780. the 780s should drop a good bit in just a couple months. $650 is entirely too much to pay for a 3gb card when you already have a 4gb 670 and amd will be releasing something to counter it. . i would be surprised if theres a 4gb 770 card any time soon. we already 'know' from evga there wont be any 6gb cards.
670s are already cheap used and should drop to $400 for a 4gb new pretty soon.

I'd vote for the 780 if you can, wait for the 4Gb, you won't have to worry about SLI worries and it's more powerful to boot biggrin.gif But like others have said wait for the prices to come down a bit first, a 670 4Gb is still a pretty good card so if you don't have to change anytime soon rolleyes.gif Perhaps wait for Maxwell or AMD's 8000 series?
