I'm getting this monitor as soon as it comes out, but currently have a HD 6970, so obviously need a new card too. I am getting an 800 series card when they're out (880 maybe), but for now, what cheap NVIDIA card can I pick up that supports G-Sync that's on par with my HD 6970?

Why would you do that for such a short period of time? By the time you have this it will be just a few months...

A GTX 580 is faster. Because of the mining craze you should be able to sell your 6970 for what the 580 costs... and just be out the shipping the ebay seller fees.

Or just buy a GTX 750 TI it has plenty of power to get you by and I am pretty sure it supports G-SYNC

Super cheap and uses no power... would be great for a secondary cheap computer.

I've already got two computers, each with a 6970. This temporary card would become part of a third computer once I get a 880 or something for the G-Sync system, and I'd run 6970 Crossfire in the other smile.gif

Its worth noting that the 800-series will possibly be out around the time this monitor comes out...

Going cheap for 1440p is not what id recommend lol..

You run 1440p surround at 120 FPS, and I'll be impressed. Totally would love to see benchmark results.

This is actually what I like most about this monitor - it has completely ridiculously absurd headroom compared to current graphics cards. You could buy one of these now and max it out, but you won't be maxing out three with this generation and maybe not even with the next one. This monitor will last for quite some time.

I have a strong feeling the GTX 880 in a 2-3 way SLI config will be able to handle this. Much more processing power and a supposed 5GB vram allocation should dice it up.

I wouldn't expect 880 to be more than 15% faster than 780 Ti. The last time nVidia reduced the transistor size, they released 680, which was a mid-range version of what the 780 Ti eventually became. I expect to see the mid-range version of GK2xx released as the GTX 880.

Based on the 750/Ti's performance, I'm expecting more out of Maxwell than previous iterations. It's not just about the shrink. The power efficiency of Maxwell is going to be big, and if they still target the same TDP...

750 Ti is a small chip though. I doubt they'll be able to scale the first iteration of GK2xx to over 8B transistors at the same efficiency. GTX 580 and 680 had nearly the same number of transistors. As opposed to more transistors, nVidia relied on the higher clocks and better design to get the performance increase they wanted.

I expect 880 to have roughly the same transistor count as 780 Ti, but with higher clocks and a better-performing architecture. This lets nVidia milk two generations out of the same architecture, just as they did with 6xx and 7xx.

Why?

The difference is how much better-performing, and specifically how it performs better. The big word for the 750 was efficiency - both power efficiency and space efficiency. To the point where they increased performance per watt by 30% without a shrink. Maxwell is not the same jump as prior architecture changes, using past as prologue is not as likely to be the case this time.

In any event, we'll know for ourselves in a week I'm betting. GTC keynote should be entertaining.
