gtx 680 sli 2gig or upgrade to 780sli or wait for 800???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I currently game at 2560x1600 and also at 1080p but in 3D on asus vg278h. The only games that bring my 680's to there knees are metro and crysis 3. The only game I'm like to max out is BF4 and get 60fps on my 1600p monitor. Would it be beneficial to me to sell my 680's and upgrade to to the 780's evga acx model??? or keep my 680's and hope I can max out bf4 and not meet my vram???

let me ask you, dawn. i am serious. do you think you'll feel the same way if you currently have 680's with 4GBs in them? i mean the urge to upgrade your current gpus.

edit: i would try with one 780 first and oc it a bit before buying a second. nobody really knows how much BF4 will tax VRAM.

GTX 680 SLI to 780 SLI is a pretty big jump in performance. Didn't the BF4 demo run on 7970 in crossfire? Not sure about the settings they used, but it looked pretty good, i guess the 680's might be around that performance unless VRAM will cripple them. If VRAM will be an issue for your GTX 680s you could upgrade. But why not wait until the game is out?

Or if you have an imidiate urge for an upgrade, go for 780 in SLI. They will outperform your 680's

Do you remember when BF3 was about to come out that Dice said "You will need 2 580s to run it smoothly?" That was crap (unless you consider smoothly = 100+ fps, which would be ridiculous since 60fps is a complete smooth experience). Same here, they were running the game on an "over-powered-pc-for-that-game" to have the best possible performance and exhibit. If I were you I'd wait for the 800 series, GTX680 sli is way more than enough; And a single 880 may be as fast as an sli of 680s (and cheaper at the same time). Keep in mind that the 800 series are going to be between us next year.
