GTX 780 TI or wait for the GTX 790? - Page 4

post #31 of 66
Thread Starter 
So 2 questions:

1. How much would a 6990 be worth? Would it be best to sell them as a pair?
2. If you OC some 780s with good cooling, would they basically be equal to the Ti's?


Thanks smile.gif

I have no clue what 6990's are worth. I sold my 7950's as a pair and made $650. No OCed 780's won't come near a 780ti (Considering the 780 ti overclocks very well too). You are way better off with 2 780's if you can afford it. I play at 2560 x 1440 @120 hz and my 780 ti does very well. I still would take 780 SLI though.

Also, it IS safe to say I should upgrade my CPU to support 2 GTX 780 Ti cards? Even if its OC'd to 4.1ghz?

Thanks again for all the help smile.gif

What CPU do you have? I have the i7 920 running at 4.1 ghz... I would assume that might bottleneck?

I have a 3770k which is very similar to a 4770k but about 5% less performance. It runs my 780 Ti great and will probably never give me a bottleneck before I were to upgrade... which will be awhile on the CPU. Get a 4770k and don't look back because your CPU might bottleneck. Plus it's really outdated.

I think ill get 1 780GTX ti for now, and see how the 6990s sell. If they sell decently, I think ill go ahead and grab the other for SLI. How is this card?

Gigabyte makes good coolers but it can only overclock a little due to the pcb, maybe spend a bit extra to get the 780ti classified, it can do much better overclocking.

Check out those CPU benchmarks. Do you think I should really be worried about my CPU at this point, or just concentrate on GPU first? Meaning, order the video cards first, then see if the CPU needs addressing?

Get the gpus first then decide on the cpu imo.

Most reports saying the multiplayer will suffer without a very up to date CPU. Trying to verify.
