Need help picking new card.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well i am ready to pick a new card for my pc. Only problem is i'm conflicted on which one to get. I am going to list some of my specs and hope i can get some help. Ohh and my MAX budget is $800, I currently run a 1080p monitor but i have plans to either go to a 1440p or 120hz 1080 in the next few months.

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X On sale this weekend for 347.99 (before $20mir) good deal for ghz 7970 / Could sli them but not sure my x750 can handle it? Ohh and the free games are a + as i don't have any of them

Gigabyte 760in sli. / Slightly worried about the vram in next generation games or if i do go 1440p

Gigabyte 770 4gb / Think this is my best bet for a single card solution at 1080p

Evga Acx 780 / Think this is my best for a single card solution at 1440p but. Prop the worst performance per dollar

xbrand 8000 series / should i wait?? and how long is it going to be

It would be nice to get everything under $800. Im just not sure, just because i have $800 to spend on gpu's does't mean i need to spend it all. i feel like the 7970 ghz or 770 might be my best gpu for the money. but, its hard not to want the 780

GTX 780 only makes sense with a 120 monitor or 1440p plus.

I've got a 1440p monitor, managed to sell off my GTX680 & bagged me this:



EVGA GeForce GTX780 SuperClocked w/EVGA ACX Cooler

the best GTX780 out there (so far)
Shhh!
