Looking for upgrade advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 480gtx hooked up to a monitor at 2560x1600. I am looking to upgrade to the new 7-series and wasn't sure which to get. I mainly play Battlefield 3, guild wars 2, bioshock infinite, and other less-intensive games. Problem is I am not sure which card to get. The 780 seems like a steep price compared to the 770, especially since I can get a 770 with 4gb for cheaper. I generally enjoy jacking the image quality up in games (eye candy really helps with the immersion) so the 4gb 770 looks like the best option. Thoughts?

If you have the budget to get a GTX 780, do it, you will NEVER be disapointed with your decision. In a year or two, if you want even more horsepower, just get a second GTX 780 for cheaper since it will be old tech.
