Sli 780s SC or 780 Ti?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is the 780 ti worth it? or should I go for sli 780s superclocked. I game on a single monitor at 1080p.

Exactly what I was thinking, $700 for 3gb of vram not really worth it.

Thanks.

Is your monitor 120hz? I have a Reference 780 and VG248QE, and it really depends on the games you play. I maxed out all the settings on the Metro: LL (Very high Quality/Tessellation, PhysX on, AF maxed, SSAA on.) benchmark and got 33-41 FPS avg, depending if I had my card OC'd or not. So if you don't play with everything @ max you could prob get by with a single 780, but if you really like maxing everything, and plan on doing so in newer games, 780 sli would probably be nice. You may even be able to get 770 SLi for a single 1080p 120hz monitor.

Are you against AMD? The 290 could also be good, too. Though people seem to not like the stock cooler and it's apparently loud. But If I was in the market for a new GPU, I would have trouble picking 780 Classified or 290. If I went 290, I'd personally wait for non-reference design, though.

I'm jelly you can get a Classified for about $100 less than I got my Reference 780 for. Though it does make it more affordable for me to SLI 780s. smile.gif

Well based off the fact we have no reviews on the card yet, will you need the extra performance?

If you are running at 1080p vram shouldn't be too much of an issue for the foreseeable future.

But like everything we don't know until it comes out.

I'd say go with SLI if you want more performance, if your board, cpu, psu and case are up to it.

SLI will obviously give you more performance, but of course can be more troublesome for games because the drivers aren't up to snuff or the game wasn't optimized for dual card configurations. At the moment, 780 SLI seems overkill for 1080p for most games, saving Cysis 3 or TW2/3.

We know nothing of the 780Ti, except for a price reveal a week ago. This can change, and I actually expect it to. The fact that it was "leaked" was probably by Nvidia to test the "waters". And now with the 290 in play, I don't think they can or will launch at $700.

Honestly, for just 1 1080p monitor, just ONE of either will be great. If you want maximum ep33n, then go with the GTX 780Ti. If you want maximum performance, go with SLi GTX 780 SC's. Personally, I'd go with SLi GTX 780 Classified. Slightly more expensive than the SC's ($579 each), but you can easily overclock the snot out of them, even on air. I got mine up to 1293MHz on stock voltages with no BIOS mods. I have the EVGA one with the ACX cooler and it isn't a power hog and is quiet.
