The 770 also uses less power but it's not like it is going to save you much money so it's not really worth basing a decision on.

Are you kidding. R9 290 is much faster than GTX 770 even in skyrim. btw frametimes are excellent on R9 290

I didn't say anything about speed, I said from what I've read it is supposed to seem smoother with Nvidia cards, a lot of people have reported stutter using AMD cards. I've even read of somebody going from a 2GB nvidia card to a 3GB amd card for more memory but then switching to a 4GB nvidia card to resolve the stutter issues. Maybe it was because of that frametime thing which has only recently been fixed by AMD.


And why are you comparing the 770 to the 290? The 770 is the equivalent of the 280x, of course the 290 competing with the 780 is a lot faster. Now you are really showing your bias if that is not a mistake and you are trying to compare the 2GB 770 to the much more expensive and much faster 290.

Oh btw I see on that review the 2GB 770 has a 17 average fps lead on the 280x at 1080p, that's a huge difference.

That bit-tech link shows the Nvidia cards doing better in skyrim though. 770's beat the 280x and 780's beat the 290.

Makes no difference to me as I don't care about skyrim but I'm sure it will matter to the OP.

this review shows the R9 280X ahead at high 4xaa. so neither card is decisively faster in all cases thumb.gif

this review shows the 770 ahead at 1,920 x 1,080, 8x AA 16x AF, w/ high res texture packs by a massive 17fps average, I'd say that is a lot faster. It also shows it ahead at all other resolutions. thumb.gif

just some extra info about the gigabyte windforce model, I raised a ticket in Gigabyte website to ask them "why they list the model with direct x11.1 support " when its well known that gtx770 supports 11.0

I just got my answer, that the newest revisions are updated and can support dx11.1 and thats good news, because dx11.2 features can be achieved with dx11.1.

And as gigabyte told me, the information is directly from NVIDIA. So all rev.2 cards are updated.

Hello again, today (finally) the distributor contacted with me, to give me the final prices for the gpus

GYGABYTE windforce 3x gtx 770
ASUS 280X dcii OC TOP model
and

Asus gtx 780 OC TOP

As I said, I turned in my old gpu gtx480, because I had some temp problems and blue screens and they gave me a list of gpus, to pick one as a replacement and if there is any difference in the price, I have to pay it.

so here it goes and am asking your final verdict...

GTX770 by gigabyte = 36 euros and about (25 pounds or 45 bucks)
ASUS 280X (free of charge) I pay nothing.
GTX 780 by ASUS DCiiU TOP OC = 130 euros and about (110 pounds or 160 bucks)

If I get gtx770 or 280x, I will get 1 more for sli or crossfire. If I get 780, I will not get a second gpu. I gave them also the code for gtx780, because I was curius how much I have to pay for it... Thats why I also got an offer for the gtx 780.

For the best Bang to buck Ratio, i would get the 780. Only $160 when their $550+! I would do it. At least the 770. But if your BROKE, get the 280X, that's still a great card. thumb.gif

I play in 1080p, I use a 32' LG monitor/tv

For my new system, I allready bought
the pc case, coolermaster haf XM
psu, AX850w Corsair (golden)
ssd, samsung 840 pro 128gb
2 hdd , WD 2tb green

and I need cpu/mobo and ram


When i had my 7970 - same as, I play in 1080p, I use a 32' LG monitor/tv - a 780 or a 290 would be my choice, no ti or x thumb.gif

And 1080p must still be the majority, is it?

And I am a single card user that would never entertain sli/cf biggrin.gif

yes I can get all of them, thats why I asked... If I pick 780, I will have to wait for it come, because its out of stock (but thats not a big issue).

amd 290x havent arrived in my country yet!! They do have 290! But both are reference models and I dont want THAT hot gpus, because I live in Greece and at summer time ITS SOOOO HOT, you cant turn you pc on with 95c gpu (you may die if u play pc games at summer time with such a hot gpu in the room)!!! As for the 780, I was expecting a biger differencein the price, I did for fun asking and its really cheap!

The gtx780 by ASUS http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/GTX780DC2OC3GD5/#overview

is a very cool model 27-62c its already OCed and it can go even further! so base clocks by factory, is about 5-10% higher performance than the reference 780 models. So yeah, I am overwhelmed, trying to decide, I am also excited...

Yes I play only 1080p
