Is a GTX 780 too much card for me?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am a gamer but I only use 1 monitor, 27" 1920 x 1200 resolution. I currently have a Radeon HD 5850 and was considering a GTX 760, but if there is benefit in getting the 780 I will pull the trigger.

Most of my games I play are MMO's WoW, GW2, SWTOR, FF14 and ESO when it comes out. I may try my hand at some FPS, but it never has really been my genre.

This will be going into a new build.

Thanks,
Chris

If you have the budget for it, I would say go for the 780. It will be more future proof for you too.

Kinda what I was thinking, also it is easier to find water blocks for the 780 and this is my first water build so I want to go all out smile.gif

I have tri sli 780 in watercooling. Go for it man. Not only loving the performance of the 780 giving out but also the temperature. You'll love it thumb.gif

Yeah, I agree with the other users. The 780 would be perfect for your new build, especially at that resolution. Specifically if you get a custom PCB, 780 Classified comes to mind, and watercool it... Yes, it would be perfect. biggrin.gif
