780 enough at 1440p? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I just ordered a second 780 for sli @ 1440p. I found that 1 780 isn't quite enough to lock the fps at 60 in games. I can get an average fps above or at 60fps in just about all games with 1 780 but its the minimum fps that really matters. Bioshock infinite dips into the low 50's high 40's for example. If you look around other forums there are many users that started out with 1 780 and now have 2 for 1440p gaming. Here's an example:

Yes, the i5 can handle 2 780's without any bottleneck. No worries at all!

I've seen enough hardware reviewed at 1440p that I'm not buying at all that a single 650 is giving decent framerates. "Playable" to this poster maybe, but I doubt his framerates would be acceptable to me.

I'd be looking at two 770s if I were pushing that res.

I'm confused on what you're saying here. Sorry if it's just me, but you start with saying that "crysis 3 uses all the VRAM on my 680 at 1080p"..."I'd be looking at two 770s if I were pushing that res". So why would you recommend the 770's to someone who is using 1440p, when you run out of VRAM on 1080p with the gk104 architecture based gpu? The 680 and the 770 run on that same gk104, so if you run out of vram at 1080 he would be totally screwed at 1440. I think what you meant to say was def. go with the 780s for the gk110 architecture with higher vram (3gb) so that he will have more vram for that res?

Thanks, now I've got a more realistic idea of the fps a single 780 will get me. I think I'll wait for the 9970 to drop just to see what it will be like price/performance, then probably just go with another 7970 to ensure I can stay above 60 fps most of the time.

Crysis and last light seems to be the hard hitters but for most normal games 1 780 should do it maybe not fully maxing a game but getting close but i do recommending sli. I recently have gotten a gtx 780 and soon a 1440p monitor my self coming from 1080p and im looking to sli my self depending on how the 800s look
