Step-up to 780 Ti?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm still within the timeframe for the EVGA Step-up program on my 780. I was wondering if it was worth the money to step up to a 780 Ti. My goal is 60 FPS across all games, and I'm not QUITE there with Assassin's Creed IV and a couple others. In Assassin's Creed, I range from 45-60. Would a going up to a Ti be enough to keep me at 60 solid? If I do not step-up to a Ti, I would put the money aside and go SLI in a few months.

I would rather go SLI instead. Yes TI is better, but not THAT much better. Now that 780's has gone so far down in price, it is much easier on the wallet to get a second 780 than say two 780TI's.
Don't expect to much from AC series, all except first one is terribly optimized on PC. It's not your computer, it's the game.

Yes, I too agree that you would more than likely be happier going SLI. Not an NVIDIA guy, but my dual 7970 stock clocks runs ACIV on avg 60fps....but yes its the game not your PC.

post #5 of 5
well i had a Gainward 780 it was realy god but i wanted something even better so i bought a Evga 780TI super clocked and i have to say i did notis a difference in everything i was amazed how well it did perform i would rater buy a 780ti agian and try and save money for one more biggrin.gif
when i did benchmark my 780 on Heaven Benchmark 4.0 i did get 2500 score ish and ofc you can oc and get better but i got over 3100 easy whit the 780ti and you can oc that as well those are stock scores. my brother has evga 680 4gig in sli and my singel 780ti beats his benchmarks biggrin.gif but my 780 dident biggrin.gif
and after some easy overcloking on my 780 ti i ran Heaven Benchmark 4.0 agian and got over 3454 in score and that is on stock air and it was at 62c and after playing for hours i mange to get it to 71c at most
i still havent seem my card go to 80c and i use the reference card since i am waiting for my water block biggrin.gif

i just have to say i going from 680 - 780 was nice but going from 780 to 780 ti was even more impressive biggrin.gif

Regards jimmy
Ps sorry for my bad spelling biggrin.gif
