Right up until you fill the 2 gb of vram, which by now I think we all understand is not terribly hard to do.

edit: seriously, get the 780 with the SB-e.

Just to put that in perspective, this is my current best score with a single Titan:

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/714038

And there are people with several thousand more points than me, on one Titan. Note that my graphics and overall scores are significantly higher. And then keep in mind that I have a poor example of a Titan, with a low asic and I am unable to get past 1150 mhz without artifacting during the benchmark. Most Titans are pretty much in the same range as mine, with the occasional few golden chips that OC to nearly 1300.

Those charts are misleading. That doesn't give any specifics about the setup, and the physics score plays a massive part in the final score.

But seriously. Buy the 780.

no to the GTX 760 and that was kinda .... for suggesting that here.
you don't really need LGA 2011 either if this is about gaming primarily..

The 780 would be my preference and the reasons have been stated here.

I am not a fan of Haswell as the temperatures cannot be properly controlled unless the CPU's are delidded or extremely cooled.

My best air cooled chip (4770) would only get to 4.5Ghz.

The IVY-E chips are coming out very soon and the 4820K will have solder instead of paste and should be a better overclocker then the 3770K equivalent. Or go with a 4930K, or used and reduced price 3930K.

If your 27 inch is not 60hz. One 780 will suffice, and you will hit the fps wall way before hitting the vram wall on that resolution. If you are going to get a 780, then get two. Otherwise, you will get a lot more enjoyment out of a 690 on any 27 inch 60hz or 120 hz.

I don't know what he said his resolution was, if at all, but I wish people would realize that the size of the monitor has nothing to do with how much work a graphics card needs to do.

A 27" monitor could be 720p for all we know, or it could be 1920x1080, or 2560x1440.

If it is a 1440 monitor, I would avoid the 690 because of the vram issue. If it is just a 1080p monitor, I would still avoid it because of the vram issue, as newer games are easily using 2 GB of ram anyways. Certainly games in the next year or two will start seeing a higher maximum requirement.
