Single Card that Will Run 120+ FPS on All Games at Max Settings?

post #1 of 67
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased an Asus VG248QE 24" 144Hz Monitor w/ Lightboost. I currently have AMD Cards so I can't truly test it out. I'm looking for the most cost effective way to play any game I want at max settings on 1920x1080p and 120hz. I understand that 1920x1080 isn't a big deal, but the main thing is keeping it 120+ fps so that I can actually give Lightboost and 120hz in general a real test as I've always used 60hz IPS Panels in the past. I am testing this out to see if I want to buy two more of those monitors for a 5760x1080 Surround Setup.

What card(s) would I need to accomplish this? Will a single 780 do the job or is it overkill? 770 maybe, then? Will neither be enough? I have no experience with absolutely any of this, including Nvidia cards, so someone please guide my ignorant self. biggrin.gif haha

Thank You.

on 1080p at max settings even with a titan, it wont play metro last light at 120 fps, lmao. sorry

but if you want the BEST CHANCE of the higest FPS, then titan, 690, or amd 7990 Ghz edition.

the titan is the best as in single GPU, the others are technically dual gpu's running in sli, so any issues the game has with sli (microstudder etc. etc) will show itself using any dual gpu card like the 690 or 7990.

you could go get a pair of 780's for about 200 bucks more than a titan/ 690 and perform much better, but i hope you invested in a power supply.

No single card will achieve 120FPS on max settings even at 1080p.

My GTX 670 SLI doesnt even achieve it on all games and scaling is great with two of the cards.

Two GTX 780's might do it for most games but again Crysis 3 and Metro last light you won't achieve a solid 120FPS.

As others said, probably a titan, but no card can do Crysis 3 or metro last light on ultra AND 120Fps

For the most intensive games, you're not going to be able to do that at max settings. For instance, in Crysis 3 an overclocked 780 or a Titan might get 60FPS on very high settings.

If you really want to get the best FPS (as close to 120 as possible) on max settings (or close to max) then you're probably best off going with two 780s in SLI. Once overclocked, they can beat a Titan in performance (EDIT: a single one, that is), and it seems the Titan is only worth the big price premium if you want the 6GB of VRAM.

Basically, to get as close as possible to achieving what you said, you'll need multiple powerful GPUs.

Okay, I forgot about those two ridiculously demanding games. lol That's my bad.

Aside from those two, what are my best chances at a reasonable price? 780, Titan, 770 Sli, etc.?

Let's say 100+ FPS on at least MOST games? Is that more reasonable?

Forgive me for being ridiculous. As I said, I've been gaming on 60 Hz IPS so anything around 60 FPS was fine for me. tongue.gif

Thank You, everyone.

Yeah, I thought that might be the case tongue.gif

Perhaps a single 780. Personally I wouldn't recommend going straight into SLI unless you need more performance than the top single GPU can provide. A single GPU is preferable where possible, and it gives you the option of adding in another one later.

You'll most likely have to knock down a few settings in most games, but most of the time you can do so and barely notice a difference in how the game looks.





Just picked a few benchmarks from AnandTech's review so it's by no means a comprehensive performance analysis. Not all of those are on maximum settings but you're mostly looking at the "very high" region.

Once you overclock the 780, you should be consistently beating the Titan at 1080p.

Titan if you decide to go for a single card. At 1080p it should run most games at 100fps+ or 100fps average.
Gtx 780 is about $400 less than Titan and 10% slower so you can say about 4-15fps difference between the two. biggrin.gif

That's why I'd say the 780 is a better buy - it's quite a lot cheaper with only a minor drop in performance.

Thank You for the benchmarks. cheers.gif

Yeah, the only way I would buy a Titan is if I found a great deal on a used one. I know the 780 is extremely close and far cheaper.

My big decision right now is a single 780 or 770 SLI. The 770s should be about equal to the 7970 GE, both in CFX/SLI and Single Card, right?

That would be some pretty impressive numbers if they scale well w/o issues at only $800 for two vs. $650 for a single 780.
