760gtx upgrade

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I didn't know I'd like BF4 so much but I do... Now I'm bugged that I can't run it full max. I assume my GPU is holding me back. If I sli with another 760gtx would that let me max out bf4? Trying to find cheapest solution. If I upgrade to better card I assume I will need a better GPU?

In my situation what would you do?

id stick with one 760 , i have one 760 and i get full ultra but i have the bottom 3 options set to off, because they effect the fps the most.

if you have the GTX 760 4gb and you sli them you can get away with your PSU without no overclocks and max all games

You have a couple of options. SLI is not a bad option, but you have to decide how you want to mess with things. You should be able to sell your card for about $200 fairly quickly, and depending on how you do that, you could use the funds left over plus the extra you were going to spend on another card and go used 780. They can be had for 400-450 here in the marketplace and similar.

Overall, maybe a little more work, but probably the way I would go personally. Would use less power and play very smoothly.

I just have a hard time recommending anyone to pay for a 2gb SLI option. Try to get some longevity out of it all, you know?
