Triple 480 GTX to ??? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
OP get a single R9 290. easily 2x the GTX 480. dual SLI scaling on avg across many games is 1.5 - 1.6x. third card scaling is very poor on SLI.

2560 X 1600

R9 290 - 100
GTX 660 - 52

the GTX 480 is slightly slower or on par with GTX 660. a single R9 290 overclocked to 1.2 ghz will play any game at 1600p at close to max settings. a second R9 290 is not needed for 1600p especially if your monitor is 60 hz. thumb.gif

My vote would be a 780 classified. At about 570 bucks, its a steal for its known OC performance which is nothing less of stellar. If you check out the GK110 vs. Hawaii thread (In short, owners here on OCN have been benching the various Green and Red team cards) the classy has been a beast, meeting or beating the 290's performance. Since the OP said he will put it under water, he should have no issue hitting those high marks.
