GTX 760 Tri SLI vs 770 Dual SLI vs 780, Which One? - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Are you still playing at 1600x900? A single 780 is fine for that. Or even 1080p. Once you step up to 1440p, 2gb cards won't cut it.

Single 780ti will rip @1080, and even 1440/1600p.

770 SLI for 1080p is overkill as one would be enough.


I'd go single fastest card: 780ti

@marc, overkill is the name of the game tongue.gif

Pair of 760 Hawks should be a good deal faster then a single 780 ti as well as being cheaper

Of those choices, I'd go with 2 GTX 770's. nVidia cards don't scale well in tri or quad sli, so I'd just pretty much write off the GTX 760s.

Personally I'd go with the EVGA GTX 770 with ACX cooler for $329 each (or better yet, the EVGA GTX 770 Superclock for just $5 more). Sure you can get the Asus for $10 less, but I like the EVGA products better. The GTX 760's are going to set you back about $259 a pop, but personally, I just wouldn't do it.

Unless you need more than 2GB of memory (ie are running multiple monitors or heavily modded games), it will serve you well, especially if you are only doing a single 1080p monitor.

Then again, you could always get a used EVGA GTX 780 Classified with ACX cooler for about $510 here on OCN. They overclock like nobody's business (1300-1400 on air), and while more expensive, it does have 3GB of memory, and you can always add a second later on when you REALLY need more power ... for even less money. I haven't run into a game that my GTX 780 Classified couldn't play on a singled 2560x1440 monitor "all the way up".

I just picked up a second GTX 780 Classified here on OCN, and it should be here Tuesday. You will most likely find a bunch of "Classified" for $510'sh or regular GTX 780's for in the $460's ... especially since the GTX 780Ti's are out and especially when the GTX 780Ti Classified comes out in a couple more weeks, and people want to upgrade.

I only really play BC2 and now Bf4 but I haven't had scaling issues at all.

Decided to get the 780ti, ordering on this Wednesday, I'll get the 6gb version if it's out. I'm playing on 1x1080 and also 3x1080. 3gb should cut it except for heavy mod skyrim. Probably grab another this summer.

Good decision.. More ram is good investment to be use on larger resolution.
