Graphic card purchase - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Depends what you consider playable. Personally i think a single 780ti or 290x would be enough for a single 1440p monitor, then again i consider playable enything from 30 to 60 fps on avg depending what type of game i'm playing. For instance i don't like to go below 40avg for first person shooters. You will max out most current games and get 60+ fps...might need to lower AA a bit for the more demanding titles if you want more than that.

I'll wait and see what the 290x cards look like in December. Otherwise, purchasing a 780ti and a 27" 1440p screen then. Thanks all, for the information and debate.

Another thing to consider if going with a single 780ti is that g-sync is coming out next year. You might hold off a little longer for the monitor in that case and take full advantage of your gpu. Basically from what i understand with a g-sync monitor even if you can't max out every game at 1440p and get 60fps, it shouldn't really matter because even at 40fps with this new technology the games should run just as smooth (no lag or stutter) as say 60fps on the current v-sync that we have now. Since you prefer to have a single card in your system, this would make sense for you. But g-sync is not out yet and i can't 100% confirm it's gonna be as awesome as it sounds. Just something to keep in mind.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Looking to purchase in the next 5 weeks a single video card to go into a ASUS Rampage IV Extreme mobo with a 1200w PSU. Air cooled system. Currently running a single MSI Lightning 7970. I play lots of BF4 and other games including motorsport and flight-sim games that I'd like to set up Eyefinity for soon. I want to avoid SLI or Crossfire. I'm somewhat ATi leaning over the past few years but am not opposed to switching.

My budget is (relatively) unlimited here. I'm currently hooked up to 3 24" screens at 1920x1200 but will be moving the central screen to 27" at 1440p/120hz in the same time frame. I'd like to put a single card in this system and be set for a year or two, at least.

So my question is, given the time of year (Black Friday deals, price drops after no products, etc) and the (relatively) unlimited budget, am I looking at a plunge for the Titan or wait for the now/soon to be better options for pure power? Can a R9 290x compete? Are there other/better options?

If money isn't an object (relatively) and I'm buying YOU a new video card, what would you want, based on the above?
