single GTX670 4GB or GTX760 4GB SLI for 1440p gaming?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 670 4GB and it works decent, I do have to turn down some games settings to play well and I still cant get a solid 120 fps like I would ideally like to get. I can sell the 670 for the cost of one 760 4GB right now, so really this upgrade would only be for the cost of one 760 4GB card, or $300. Would the upgrade really be worth it for a performance increase? I know a single 760 is a bit slower than my current card, and I have never actually done SLI before. I hear it works very well these days but will it really give me a large enough boost in FPS to even be considered?

760 4GB SLI is a beautiful setup.

 

Cost effective, efficient.

 

You can also look into a 780 if you do not want to be bothered with potential SLI problems.

Oh shoot true.

 

I thought the 670 was 2GB.

 

A 670 4GB is stronger than 760 4GB for sure.

 

Not too strong but still stronger.

Yes but two 760's look to be stronger than a single 780, even though the cost for me would be about the same (~$300). I think getting another 670 4GB would be too expensive to be worth it, since after tax that brings me to an additional $475 which is more than I want to spend if I do an upgrade.

I could get dual 760 4GB's for $300, which are stronger at stock than a single 780. Can I overclock these in SLI?

If I cant overclock in SLI, then a single 780 would be just a little bit more expensive and while it is slower at stock speeds than dual 760's, I could always overclock this another couple hundred MHz to make up the difference in performance.

the GTX 760 is not able to utilize 4GB of VRAM, it takes Tri-SLi for the GTX 670 or 760 to be strong enough.
a single or even SLI 670/760 runs out of power before the VRAM comes into play.

Where can you get two 760 4GB's for $300? That's a great deal to pass up though. It's a tough call man.

I can get them both for $300 our of pocket because I would sell my current graphics card to cover one of the cards if I go that route.

So you really don't think that I will push past 2GB of vram usage in the next couple years running 2560x1440 resolution with 16x AF and 2-4x AA? I thought Battlefield was already pushing past that mark so I dont want to be limited by memory barely a year from now.
