Buying a Graphics Card tonight ... Need Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Main Objective : 1440p gaming (BF4, Metro, etc)

Should I go with the 780ti (superclocked ACX version) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487003

or would a 780 classified be enough.

I also have a 4770k running @ 4.6 and a Qnix overclocked @ 110.

Any help would be appreciated .. (this is my first build)

For 1440p I'd say go for the 780ti. A 780 Classified will be enough though and it's the one I chose for my setup, saved me some cash.

If you can afford the 780ti you should get one smile.gif.

Both are excellent cards thumb.gif

780ti superclocked ACX is a great card, more than enough to push a single 1440p display

the 780 classified is also a great choice if you want to save some money, the classified cards can overclock pretty well, so there would be no problems matching the 780ti, however the 780ti can overclock just as easily tongue.gif

OP from a price / perf point of view a R9 290 with a custom cooler is a very good option. otherwise the classy 780 is a very good card and good value too. clock for clock the 780 ti is maybe 8 - 10% faster than a 780 and not really worth paying the extra 190 bucks.
