Best choice for 120Hz 1080P gaming - Page 2

post #11 of 14
2 x 780 will be your best choice IMO, if budget isn't your problem. And you can run out most of games right now...maybe a few that you can't max out like crysis 3, metro LL.

Do you really need to nail 120fps? If so, why? Wouldn't being able to sustain ~60fps average be plenty? Are you ever planning on gaming in 3D (with it's ~50% fps hit)?

I'd say go with the fastest single card you can afford. If you're only going to game at 1080p, closer to 60fps is acceptable and NOT in 3D, a pair of 670's or single 680 (or 770) would do you very nicely (as would a single 780 or Titan). If you plan on 3D or really need 120fps then go with a pair of 680's, 770's or 780's.

No, I don't plan on playing in 3D, but there is a difference between gaming at 60FPS and 120FPS so yes I do want to "Nail" 120 tongue.gif

Get the EVGA GeForce GTX780 SuperClocked w/EVGA ACX or wait for the R9 290X. I wouldn't SLI the 660 Ti. They aren't worth the asking price that they are going for right now. If you can find a used one for under $140 it may be worth it but I'd still opt for the 780 or 290X.
