SLI 570 upgrade

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I use 4 monitors for work and currently have sli 570 to support it. A couple things - do the 680/780 support 4 independent monitors?

Is it worth it to upgrade to a 680 or a 780?

When will prices for the 780 start to come down?

I have an HX750 will it run a single 780?

Do I need to upgrade me 2500k due to bottleneck?

Thanks dudes!!!

Yes, an HX750 would be able to run 780, and no your Intel 2500 would not bottleneck an 780. I think 780 does support 4K resolutions but how it performs in games and productivity apps i do not know. BTW, what programmes do you use at work ?? and what is your budget ??

Yes you could run two cards with 750 watts

Thanks guys.

I'm a day trader - I actually use 6 screens and a little GTX520 for my other two monitors. I would like to keep my budget low, 650$ for a single card just seems ridiculous to me!

Problem with the 570s is that they only have 1.25gb of ram and at anything over 1080p they run out of vram, so a 770 of 780 would be a decent upgrade. What about a 7970?

I've thought about the 7970 - but for an extra $200 it seems like I should just get the 780. I've never had good luck with AMD personally.

I like the GTX 780 idea but I thought you said you didn't want to pay that price...

Definitely don't like the idea of paying $700 for a single video card, but if I'm going through this hassle to sell my 570's/upgrade to drop $400 for a last gen 600 series or 7970, whats another $300 ya know? Guess thats just the price to play.

I do like GTX 780's....

I went from SLi GTX 570's (really overclocked 448's) to SLi GTX 670's in my Surround rig, no reason to upgrade there.
I have a GTX 680 DC2 TOP @ 1080p in my other rig, only upgrade for that is GTX Titan and GTX 780.
not looking in Titan's direction, later this year maybe GTX 780 here I come too.
