GeForce GTX 760 2 way SLI or Geforce GTX 780 2 Way SLI

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a few questions on my ongoing 3 way Eyefinity setup. I currently have a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 760 and I am currently looking to setup a 3 way monitor setup. Ive looked around for benchmarks but i came up with virtually nothing. I was wondering if anyone could tell me some benchmarks for a 2way 760 SLI 5760x1080. If i can get away with buying another 760 then ill do that but ive also been looking at the Geforce GTX 780. Itll take me quite awhile to save up for a 780 due to the fact of bills that need to be paid but i should be able to save up for another 760. I also currently have my CPU watercooled and i am looking to watercool my 760. if anyone knows of a waterblock that i could buy for my 760 could you post a link below?

I have 2 7950's and can play all game on 3 screens no problem. Not all on max, but most.

Our cards are very close in performance, only thing I would be concerned about is the vram, I regularly go over 2gb vram in games on 3 screens.

If yoyu want to play games on 3 screens sli 760"s will be fine, if you want to play games on max settings on 3 screens then the 780 with more vram would be the way to go(or possibly an amd equivalent) .

I hope to play on 5760x1080 with decent fps. Ide say maybe keep my graphics to about mediumish? The games that i play consist of Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3 and 4, bfbc2, Dayz, Starcraft 2, WoW, crysis 3, and tons of source / valve games.

You should be fine with 760's then if your fine with turning some settings down on newer games. 780's would play everything at max, but with a high cost.

Bf4, farcry3 and crysis 3 would be the ones that would have to be turned down or played on a single screen, but will play just fine.

What are you're other system specs?

Would it be worth to sell my current 760 and get the 4gb one? Is the extra 50-60 dollars worth the performance? Also is the gigabyte version SLI compatible??

Nice system, just wanted to make sure you wouldn't bottlneck the cards.

Yes that card is sli compatible and tri sli from the looks of it.

The price difference is up to you if it is worth it to not be vram limited. Also I would ask in the nvidia surround page to see if the 256bus memory bandwidth is a bottleneck. The vram and bus is one reason I went with AMD cards,

If the vram bus is not an issue than the price difference would be worth it IMO, but again I would ask some people with those cards before purchase.
