ah right

maybe ill wait for a 760ti smile.gif

Keep waiting, the card will never come tongue.gif

Also for the guys that think their case is too short, I run the MSI 760 in a node 304. If your case is really too short, just remove some HDD bays. Who needs them.

you guys have some big cases...

Is this the cheapest Nvidia Gpu that has given such a good performance? This is like a high-end gpu for us poorer people that game on one monitor at 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 resolution. biggrin.gif

I know some of you plan on buying 2, which I don't understand because I thought someone said on another topic that 2 gpus isn't supported in some games. That is why I don't get why anyone even does the 2 gpu thing.

mainstream (also meaning most sales) for GPU's is the $200-299 range.
so yes this could very much be the ideal GPU for mainstream.

most games are covered for SLI, and more games are covered with driver updates.

the idea situation is to get the strongest single card you can afford them SLI that later on after the rest of the rig is completed.
but the latter gen of cards and the advancement of dual card technology (SLI) lots of people are starting out now with dual GPU's.

You are correct that this GPU offers the best bang for the buck. It's comparable to a 7950 and the 670, and costs less than both generally.

As Malmental said, SLi has come a long way. I believe most people complaining about it are basing their comments on old data and have never experienced current SLi. My 760s are the first SLi setup I've used, and it scales almost 100% (which means you are getting all the use out of the 2nd GPU) and I don't have any stuttering issues in my games (mainly BF3 and Skyrim). By going SLi right away, I get Titan level FPS, but I only spend $500 instead of $1000. I can't upgrade later on, but I still paid less than I would have if I'd gotten a 780, and I'm getting more FPS.

plus to add to that and not starting a war but 'valkeriefire' has enough CPU strength to negate most if not all micro-stuttering.

AMD CPU's are good only to a certain point in SLI but really tank in Tri and Quad set-ups.
Anandtech did an in-depth article on selecting CPU's for dual and triple card set-ups.

but my point is this, the stronger the CPU the better multiple GPU configuration performance.
and that also helps in Surround resolutions too.
hence my wanting to upgrade a few things with my Surround set-up myself.

waiting for my 2x evga 760 sc acx to be delivered straight from evga via ups on Thursday 1st of August... and i am so excited from what those 760 offers for a sli that costs around 430 euro ....
for me as i look on the benchmarks the more excited i become! smile.gif

good points, valkeriefire and malmental!

i prefer SLI. and i too don't want to start a war.

This week i was running the Metro 2033 benchmark and got to thinking...

...because the Metro 2033 benchmark results graph(s) show large Peaks/ Spikes in FPS that many would say is absolute proof that Micro-Stutter exists. and i started remembering how i first defeated it (micro-stutter) last year with GTX560-SLI. and before that with a dual GPU card (GTX295) back in 2009.

For now i'm studying Adaptive V-Sync.

Because, not only can Adaptive V-Sync make gaming smoother with a single card. It can also make gaming with two cards in SLI smoother too. And understanding it, is a step towards accepting SLI. (See: NVIDIA Adaptive VSync Technology Review)

Although having a single card, will always simplify achieving smoother gaming; why throw out the possibility of using SLI, for simplicity?

After all, throw out SLI, and u also throw away a large gain in FPS.

Large enough to surpass any Air cooled single card @1920X1200 or 1080p. (See: Crunching The Numbers: Can Dual $269 Nvidia GTX 760s Outperform A $999 Titan?)

Hello Guys.
Today I installed a Gigabyte GTX760 Windforce 3X 2GB (Rev2.0).
I had EVGA nVidia GTX260 core 216.
Huge improvement specially in all latest games.
My CPU is a humble Intel® core i3 3220 3.3Ghz .
My Unigine Valley Benchmark is 1868.

GPU-Z validation link.

My GPU temp after 30+ mins of Valley benchmark is no more then 77C (with OC) .
With Furemark and 1293Mhz on GPU Core, Temp is up to 82C.,
I haven't change Fans Auto mode.

Make note room temperature is 31C+ devil.gif (No air conditioner)
