Can't an overclocked 780ti Classy push 1440p without any problems? Is SLI really necessary?

With G-Sync, this is correct. With G-Sync, when your FPS is 40-50, your refresh rate is 40-50 Hz as well. Doesn't matter what the cap is if the display isn't running at it anymore.

Without G-Sync, there would be differences and the 120Hz would be better. G-Sync on either will blow it out of the water, though.


As far as how much you get with one 780 Ti:

Higher-end settings have FPS in the 60-70 range for most games. Pushing 120 will require SLI:

1440p itself isn't hard. It's 1440p at 120 Hz that is really stressful on the graphics hardware.

Can it? Yes it can. Can it push 120Hz? Maybe on light applications, but not really for many AAA, graphically intensive titles out there unless you turn down settings. If you want to max out 1440p @ 120Hz, you are going to at least want a dual GPU solution, and a damn solid CPU to actually push the data to your GPUs properly.

I've never used multisampling/MSAA/etc at 1080p (truthfully, I didn't even know what it did until recently), So when these forums refer to "Ultra" settings, are they assuming I'm going to want 4x MSAA? Will not using MSAA increase the amount of FPS i get? I guess it's all moot anyways, I'll be playing on an ITX board so SLI isn't an option. I personally will be happy with 60+ FPS, especially once it's G-Sync'ed on this monitor.

Can't remember if I posted here but has there been a release date other than q2 yet? Also would this work with my current rig with everything on ultra?

Yes, MSAA has a dramatic hit to your framerate, and the hit increases with each step up. Fortunately, going from a lower resolution to a higher resolution means that the need for AA is reduced, as well as the impact of continuing to use it. If you're used to a particular AA setting at 1080, going to 1440 you won't need as much.

And if you add ULMB on top of the 120 fps v-synced, you're not even in the same league anymore.

G-sync is not a magical solution that will fix the lack of fluidity and the lack of motion clarity inherent to low frame rates.

That's not the question that was asked, though. The question that was asked was if you're getting 40-50 FPS, whether 60 or 120 is better. G-Sync IS better than both of those conditions.

120 fps stable V-synced is fine, but that's not the issue.

Yes, you replied before I realized I misred the post.
What he said is correct.

Sorry about that.

I also got a 3gb 780 "only".
Yet monitors like that one are more future proof which is a well investment. I am personally the guy who seeks for a good price / performance ratio with longevity.

Though you guys to actually rethink the whole gaming situation.
Do you notice how demanding things are atm? We are at some point where you have to pull alot of money while you can't still get good framerates on high resos. Kinda hate how it's turning.. nVidia releasing a monster 3k card doesn't make it better after all.

Badly optimized games that take more vram than needed.
nVidia pushing prices higher and higher.
While you don't get the frames you expect for that kind of money.

I personally keep my 780 for quite some time until we get GPUs that can push the current stuff with ease.
