780 vs 780 Ti - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Get the 780 Ti. I don't believe that you should purposely limit yourself to a 780 non Ti as others have recommended just because your monitor is 1080p. That's like someone telling you to buy a bike instead of a car because you only live 5 blocks away from work. But there is a possibility that you may get a better monitor (1200p, 1440p or 1600p) and if you do, then you'll be in trouble since you'll have to upgrade again.

That's just my opinion, I always think that if someone is upgrading, regardless of monitor, always go for the best GPU because the performance will last you longer and you have the freedom to upgrade monitor in the future. I remember when they used to say "a 670 is more than enough for 1080p", now it isn't, same fate awaits the 780. Games are getting more intensive.

I understand that money doesn't grow on trees but that 780 Ti will last you a very long time. thumb.gif

what sort of performance increase do you guys think you're getting between a 780 and a 780Ti in gaming environments?

a noticeable improvement? sure.
some sort of excessive performance ensuring future-proof status? please.

hell, if you want to talk about massive performance increase for a slightly higher price, you might as well take a look at what the red team can offer you.

(all this coming from someone who is looking to buy a 780Ti Classy)

performance wise it surely is a big upgrade, but price/performance I doubt it is worth it. Of course if you look at it that way even the 780 is a hard buy tongue.gif A "noticeable" improvement also depends on a lot. a bump of 60 to 65fps is hardly noticeable, but in a year a bump from 30 to 40 or so is very noticeable.

the value of the 770 vs 780 vs 780 ti is all very personal. I for myself took a minimum fps in all the latest benchmarks and then took the best price/performance card above that.

I have a 120hz monitor and just a 780 can not pull close to 120 fps, that's why I got the 780Ti which comes very close to 120 when over clocked smile.gif

agreed with both. for these reasons I suggested going for a 780 during the black friday sales and looking at a second 780 down the road (however, if going red team is an option for the OP......... I'm going to recommend something else)

you're going to have to put some hard figures on that claim for the OP to get any value out of that. I suspect "not pull close to 120fps" means your 780 was holding 70fps averages and dipping to mid 50's, while your overclocked 780Ti is getting "very close to 120" when it spikes to 110fps yet holds a 80fps average.

^ I'd love to be proved wrong with the above speculation

Yes more or less, 90% of the time it holds 90fps-100fps + however I have a 1250 on core. Also I only bought the 780Ti as I only have one pci-e slot, so if I had two I would've gone with 2 GTX780's probably since they're priced so good right now smile.gif
