Question about sli config?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So in my new build i am now thinking of doing an sli setup for a sincle 27 inch monitor and also thinking about future proofing.

I would put 2 gtx 770's 4gb in sli or a single 780, My monitor is 1920 by 1080, what do you think?

Monitor:
1x Samsung T27B350ND running at 1920x1080p at 60hz

Games currently played:
Sonic Generations
Fallout New Vegas and 3
Portal 1 and 2
Mirrors edge 1 and or 2
Black ops 2
Battlefield 3 and beta 4 for now
Max payne 3
Need for speed
Skyrim
GTA 3, Sa, and 4

I would do the 780 and wait a bit till they come down in price and add another I think at the end you will be allot more happier


The 780 Has allot more cuda cores and Ram on it SO ! that last choice is yours but thats my opinion!

There are many similar posts regarding this topic. On a single 1080 monitor 1 770 (2Gb or 4Gb - I know some will argue against the 2Gb but this depends largely on your game selection, level of AA settings, and resolution) or 1 780 would work great.

What do you see in your future since you mentioned "future proofing". Any details on your rig (adding it to your sig can help)
- Monitors multiple upgrade? Resolution? upgrade?
- Games you play now, mods, etc.?
- Budget? (770 2Gb and 4Gb cards are in a priced rather well, but the 780 is a really good card that will get you great performance in SLI later if needed)

I would say a single 780 now -> great single 1080 performance - max settings on many titles, with many avg FPS around 50+, acceptable min FPS (for you) is the question, then when needed and the price goes down, 780 SLI. thumb.gif

Agreed. My OCed 780 rocks at 1080p. Only game I can't max and lock at 60 with vsync is crisis 3. If I set the AA to 2x txaa it RARELY dips below the mid 50s. I am in love with this card smile.gif
