Well this is gonna be my first post so Sup forums. Been lurking here for quite awhile and i decided to ask some of your opinions on my dilemma. I was planning to upgrade my monitor to a 2560x1080 29" and a new graphics solution along with it. I currently have an EVGA GTX 660 non ti and at 1920x1080 it does do quite OK. What sucks is that i cant add AA the FPS just dies instantly, and sometimes i have to put down graphical settings lower to get above 40 FPS which for me personally is the minimum. So the question is what would ultimately be better price to performance and before you say that get a 780 and then later get another one, thats not gonna happen. By the time i would be ready to upgrade, new cards would be in the market and i would obviously go along with the new offers instead. Also what id like to add is that in my country the 760 SLI cost 680$/770 SLI 1010$ and a 780 800$.

I have to say, that is one weird resolution to game at. Just saying.
Now, to the card solution. While Nvidia has given a strong offering of the GTX 780, I'd say wait and see what AMD has to offer. If AMD offers competitive performance to the 780 or more optimistically, the Titan, then Nvida MIGHT drop prices. I think it is simply best to wait and see what happens when AMD offers and decide on the outcome.
However, if you were to choose now, I'd be leaning towards a single card solution, the 780. It offers great performance, often matching a stock Titan, while undercutting it. However, I've heard that 770 SLI is a fantastic solution. This is just one review of 770 SLI.

However, it also comes down to your resolution. If you were gaming at 1920 x 1080p I'd still recommend the 2gb 770 SLI configuration. However, I think your resolution would be begging for more vram.
So, 780 or wait for AMD's offerings.
Hope this helps. thumb.gif

Then I stand corrected. I guess it only comes to play when you are playing a game that is heavily modded or eats vram like a beast, i.e. Crysis.

Even if AMD does come out with decent cards, where im living we never get price drops on anything. Heck there are even some I7 860's left in stock for 350$ as they originally were. The only thing that really makes me question the 770's is the Vram and if the extra FPS is worth the 200$ over the GTX 780. Also i once had GTX 460's in sli and i remembered how one card was dissapearing all the time so i had to reinstall the nvidia drivers every now and then, wonder if thats fixed..... Then theres the 760's that are 320$ cheaper than 770's and offer just a tad higher performance than a 780, but then again as im seeing the 780 overclocks like a beast. Also the resale value is important as i believe the 780 will have a much higher resale value than 770's or 760's. Oh and about the monitor yeah, i kinda did some research on it and in my opinion something like that should have been made a long time ago. tongue.gif
