670 sli vs 780? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
You have a 1920x1080p 60hz monitor? Or is it 120hz? If it's 60hz I'd say stick with one GTX 670.

I have a GTX 670 with a 1080p monitor. I eventually upgraded to a GTX 780, but only after I got a 2560x1440 monitor and needed the extra horse power. In my honest opinion any upgrade is not worth it. Just my two cents.thumb.gif

670 SLI is cheaper and will have no problems with 1080p for a quite a while. Unless you are going to get a new higher resolution monitor soon, two 670s will handle just about anything. There was a thread on OCN earlier about this exact situation except that it was about a 680 and 1440p, the conclusion was that 680s in SLI will work just fine. There is also a thread going around about 2GB VRAM and how it still does well in just about all resolution situations. I recommend that if you already have a card just SLI it.

When micro stutter occurs it is usually because of maxed out VRAM, it is rare but it still happens, When I run Fire Strike, the opening demo stutters like crazy, but as soon as I get to the benchmarks its gone. My 1280 MB of VRAM maxes out. If you run the demo and no stutter occurs you will be golden for quite a while, and most new cards don't stutter.

670 SLI vs a 780 will be similar in performance (correct me if im wrong)

so for me personally, it would just go down to cost (and the fact that 780 is newer with less power consumption)

If you can sell your 670 for a siginficantly good price, i would just say go buy the 780. (assuming your going for a new one)

but i kinda feel like its unfair how your willing to buy a used 670, but not a used 780. (or am i wrong here?)

if ur willing to buy a used 780, if u sell your 670, wont you be only paying about $100-$200 more?

(how i got the math, for simplicity lets just use retail value instead of "used" value)

780 is ~~$500

670 is ~~$300.

but if ur looking to buy a new 780 after selling ur used 670, seems like its not worth it, and just better off going SLI with another used 670.

670SLI even OCd like mine won't get you far since few games hold 60FPS, at least not on 2560*1600

My 670s are clocked at 1202MHZ on GPU and with 500MHz+ on memory.
They manages Project C.A.R.S. at maxed settings with around 45-60(limiting to prevent tearing), but a single 780Ti will probably be faster.
Diablo III runs in the 300's of FPS but can dip down to 50FPS with heavy effects on the screen (D3 and SLI is being updated with newest drivers but I haven't tried those yet).

w8, i thought we were talking about going from 670 to 780, not 780 ti??

EDIT: for OP, i think it mainly comes back to price and resolution, since he's looking to buy a 670 off ebay for ~$150. over going for a new 780 (or it sounds like hes going for a new instead of used)

looking at a $150 price tag compared a ~~$500 is a big jump.


EDIT 2: also according to this vid
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hcxvocJef4

sli 670 gets a pretty good preformance increase, (atlest in the 1080p area)
and the 670 sli is a bit better (in some cases) than a lone 780 if u compare the first vid to this one

Remember though, your on 1600p and the OP is 1080p, Big difference

I'm going to be at 1080p for a while now and maybe in the future(years) I'll upgrade to a better monitor or TV or something, but for now im at 1920x1080 which suits me just fine.

I looked at 780 on ebay and they still go for 450-500 bucks, might as well just go with new for 500-550 off newegg.

but on ebay for a 670 I see some for 150-200 used and a new for $269.

It mostly just comes down to price since everyone is saying they perform about the same but only difference for my situation is pros/cons of SLI itself vs a single card and that in the future I'll have to end up upgrading again.

I guess I'm hoping that for the price that 2 670 will last me until I really want to upgrade to a $600 card in the future and bigger resolution.

Unless you play old games then SLI isn't a problem. I moved from 580 SLI to 670 SLI to my current 780 TI Classy. The 670 SLI holds its own very well and will be faster than a 780 alone. I haven't noticed any improvement in regards to micro-stuttering with my first single card compared to my previous SLI setups.

Yep they will.

They're both 28nm kepler, a pair of 670's wouldn't use much more power than a single 780
