Plx causes latency issues when u use 1 gpu.. 2/3 are fine.

Id save money and get used 680s then... the 770 is just a overclocked 680 with a new name.

Nvm, the guys "printer ran out of ink so he can't print off a shipping label and therefore has to cancel the sale". mad.gif

Might be the biggest bunch of b/s that I've heard......I'm assuming he got a better offer since I had already paid and everything.

Actually, in the newer benches I've seen with new drivers, the 680s get spanked pretty handily by the 770/7970 and even the 7950.

Right now, I'm trying to decide between a 780 and eventually SLI or going with 2x 770 4GBs and eventually adding a third.

LoL that is because the 770 is an overclocked Gtx 680 Just over clock the 680 and it is now a 770.....

I would never buy a 770 it is the biggest slap in the face ever.... It is just an Over clocked 680 with a new name....

The 780 is over priced.....

If u want Nvidia u may just wanna grab a cheap used 670 4gb Oc it wait for amd next line up and the 150$ price drop on the 780... making the used ones ppl have up for sale to get the newer faster Amd gpus very cheap.

Well, the problem is people are still wanting $300+ for 670s and $400+ for 680s so I might as well just buy a brand new $770 as if I buy a 600 Series card right now, it's going to lose so much value between now and then.

How long is it until the next line of AMD GPUs is supposed to be released?

2 = 4 months.

Ive seen 250$ 670s and 300$ 680s.

Would go none of them.
i7 3820 all the way. Cheaper than all the 3 above and just as fast.
Overclocks to 5ghz easily.
Also x79 has more than enough pcie lanes for 3 7950's, where the z77 & z87 do not.

Ramage Formula IV is a brilliant board.

Are you sure, bud? I'm not doubting you because I know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the 3820. I've barely even heard of it.

However, at a higher clock, it loses to the 3770K in absolutely every benchmark, according to this;

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/551?vs=523

And they sell for roughly the same price right now.

Thank You for your help, I'm truly grateful. I'm just having a hard time understanding. lol

Before giving advice Hokie make sure you understand what you are talking about. You obviously do not understand gpu architecture and hence your word should be taken lightly. You are telling the OP to wait for AMD because it will be faster. It hasn't even been released yet faster than what a Titan or Gtx 780. Truth is you have no idea it's just a guess, you don't know if it will scale well in crossfire vs Sli.

He should wait and see how it plays out because it is so close.

And a 770 is a 680.. few changes on the PCB and a memory overclock.
