GPU dilemma

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 1100 on hand for my new GPU set up. My options are between the gtx 780 and 780ti

- Asus Gtx780 DCUii sli will run me 1080$ right now on amazon

- EVGA GTX 780ti sli will run 1500$+

My Question: are sli 780ti performance over Asus gtx 780 sli really worth an extra 500$???

- I'm gaming at 1080p with a 144hz monitor and trying to max out my FPS on all my current and new games that will come with my gpus

Whether you get 780s or 780Tis, I would recommend getting ones with reference EE coolers, not DCUii or any of those other silly designs that turn into an airflow nightmare.

No matter what GPU solution you buy, don't expect to see 144fps all the time. Many games will be limited by the CPU. This is what happened when I had dual 780s.
