Best way to push 1440p @ 120hz maxed out? - Page 4

You would be definitely forced to turn down settings.

That's not to say you won't be able to get good FPS in lots of games... just the demanding ones that I'm sure you're thinking of spending this money for may be disappointing if you expect 90+fps for your 120hz display. With SLi 780's you'd be above 60 in your "average" looking new game.

As for the RAM disk, that typically only improves game load time, and not actual performance. In the rare case a game streams data from the HD, like Diablo 3, a SSD is enough to never from it.
damn looks like this is going to be harder to push then I expected. Oh well sli 780s should still be fine with some aa just gotta keep 60hz untill I grab that 3rd card. Any info on whether 2133 will out do 1600 by a lot in a ram disk?

edit - after a little bit of reading up on the subject it doesn't seem useful to upgrade to the 2133 memory as the performance gain is minimal except in benchmarks for bragging rights. guess I'll just double up on my current sticks and set up like a 20gb ram disk and be done with it.

SLI 780s is MORE than enough to make use of 1440p 120hz for 99% of the games out there...

Seriously - only Crytek games will push it to the limit. You will be more than happy with that setup. What kills fps is tesselation/HBAO and AA. Playing with these settings youll get 99% of the looks at a very fast speed.

At 1440p, sacrificing AA for a huge fps boost is worth it - even tho AA makes the jaggies better, its way better than at 1080p. FXAA is a "good enough" AA for an acceptable performance hit.

Here is an idea. I think it as at post 6.

everything I see says SLI 780s should be fine pushing 60hz on the new games with ultra settings and some AA; and 120hz is doable on the older games with ultra settings. I feel like I'm going to push off the monitor OC until I can get my hands on the third unit and guarantee that I can push that 120hz the entire time.
