EVGA titan SC or ASUS 780 DCUII? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
agreed, really though if you want an enjoyable experience at 4k res youre gonna want dual titans, or dual 780s, its not gonna be cheap whatever route you go.

If you want to just power 1080p for now, then a titan wouldnt be worth it, hell a 780 might be considered overkill for them lol.

He asked for 1080p, possible triple monitors or 4k.

He already has doubts about spending 300 bucks more, there is no way he is going to spend 1400+ for something he MIGHT get in the future.

I also find it really stupid to spend all that money for 4k gaming but you got to have those early adopters, so one can spend a lot less in a year or two when prices get reasonable. There is no logical way you can justify spending 2K on graphic cards, though.

yeah for 1080p a titan or even 780 can be considered overkill, even with all settings turned way up.

And yeah 4k is kind of a bad idea atm, i have 4 titans in my 3930k rig, and im still opting to wait for 4k to get down to actual prices, and not have prices be gouged by the few companies trying to sell them.

but if he does go 4k, he might aswell go titan sli cuz he already threw a couple grand away.

When 4k monitors will go down in price, gpus will also have the power to run games at that resolution. Its just not smart to invest in neither gpus or monitors at the moment, the prices go up exponentially and the benefit not as much.

Its smarter to stay within the mainstream boundaries. Of course if one has to much money laying around this isnt a problem.

Single monitor is my main objective right now, tri monitor is more feasible for me vs 4K based on reviews. I'm leaning toward the 780's because i do plan to get a second one. The main thing im tryin to get at here is which would last longer in the gaming world, 2 way sli titans or sli 780's? Thanks a ton for all the responses thus far, interesting read.

well for single monitor, 780 is the logical choice, if you plan on getting three monitors, later, sli 780 is still most likely the better choice, but you might have to turn down anti aliasing in some games with only 3gb of vram, i dont have any problems with vram at 3x 2560x1440 monitors with 6gb from titans though.

also, lets look at it this way really quick, two titans cost $2000 usd, three 780s cost $1950 and will blow the two titans away, except in the vram and compute department, which is why titan is priced higher.

I own two 780 classifieds and lots of titans in various rigs, for every day use for normal gamers at single monitor and non 4k resolutions, 780s really are the better choice.

Just get the 780, the titan will depreciate like hell in a year or two(and your resale value will suffer).

all cards value drops over time, titan will be more than others obviously since its starting price is so high, but if youre worried about resale value in two years time, or worried about other cards eventually beating yours, then youre in the wrong hobby tongue.gif i bought my titans knowing that they will eventually end up like the 8800 ultra, going for 15 bucks on craigslist somewhere a few years down the road.

I said the Titan will depreciate more than others, plus it is already overpriced. the 780 will also lose value, but not nearly as much.

There are smarter things to do than going balls to the wall and getting triple titans. Selling your card once in a while and getting decent money out of it for an upgrade is one of them.

Saying "oh well this is how gaming works" is not an excuse, you can save LOTS of money if you do it right.
