I am really considering buying the 780. I have been reading forum after forum debating on if it is worth it to push above the 770. It seems like down the line it will be the more powerful to sli and also the better single gpu solution unless I wanted to purchase a titan(which the 780 is already a bit high to me haha). I am looking at this specific card: EVGA GeForce GTX780 SuperClocked w/EVGA ACX Cooler
I currently game on a 60hz 1080p monitor. I am aware this is overkill for now. Remembering where I am currently, on OCN overkill is common place and perfectly acceptable.
I see this as a good idea if I were to upgrade to 120hz or a higher resolution then I would be set graphically. It will destroy anything at 1080p without maxing out the card constantly. It will also be nice to for once have something top of the line so it feels like a personal milestone. A nice amount of vram for sli later on. Even though it is overkill now, games will only become more and more demanding and if I remain at 1080p, the GPU will only be taxed more and just maybe the performance of the card will hold up for a longer period of time.
Does anyone have any suggestions on card choice? This sounds pretty reasonable for me and my current setup. I see no reason to upgrade my cpu anytime soon after Haswell. It does 4.5 on air already and could soon benefit from a new HSF. I see no real bottlenecks.
