top notch cards at 1080p

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Many times I read here on OCN that a 670, 7950, and less are an overkill for 1080p and yet the cards 680, 7970 and even now the 770 and 780 and even the great titan cannot squash that 1080 resolution with all its eye candy.

Don't believe me look at some of the latest games that have come out, far cry 3 still kills a Titan for fps.

So give me views here why a 660ti or a 7870 and even higher 670 and 7950 will be good enough, let alone higher. But before you do don't give me that you play at 1080p with the lowest settings on a game. Cos all you will be doing is agreeing that the cards cannot cope with 1080p

Maybe I am being a bit argumentative, cos when a game comes out i want the eye candy, otherwise what is the point in graphics moving on?

Is game play more important than visuals? I myself want both but visuals are so important to me, they immerse me in while playing thumb.gif

I can max out almost all my games with a single OC'd 7950 at 1440 and get 50-60fps with AA disabled. In BF3 I can literally max everything out if I leave AA disabled and get constant 60fps.

Other than AA, you can get all the eye candy with a much lesser card, but if AA is that important to you then you're going to need considerably more horsepower to back that up, but IMHO AA is pretty useless and doesn't contribute at all that much to the visuals.

I think anything much above that is overkill, but then again this is OCN.

Bring Vsync into equitation which is what I prefer as to avoid wasting power because with vsync off, your card will run at maximum speed and try to output as many frames per second as possible and then the tearing redface.gif

I can max out my games on my 660ti for the moment and the next few months I imagine; and it's not an overclocked version either. I get a bit of stuttering on Arkham City when I'm outside, but that is a bad port apparently... wouldn't say no to a 780 but very happy with my 660ti, it was the right choice to make at the time.

I totally agree with you man/woman?..A lot of ppl on here say as you stated with so and so cards being overkill for 1080p but when maxing games with vsync things can get into the lower fps's.

I do run my games with vsync just fine. If my 7950 can manage that at 1440p then surely you wouldn't run into problems at 1080p. Just let the anti aliasing go and you're golden.

NOOooooo..must...have...anti aliasing.. Seriously though I know that I don't need AA but i just can't help myself.. Kind of like a crack addict to crack.

Just an example, and with all the above and I can live with 2 mssa - but the point is 1080p

You can always turn down settings a bit. I do it all the time to get 60 fps and in 99% of the time you don't notice the difference between high and ultra high.

both the hd7770 and the titan won't max out that game but both can play it smoothly at 1080. like you said, have to give up some eye candy. i play that using medium settings with the 7770.
