GTX 780 TI or wait for the GTX 790? - Page 6

post #51 of 66

Never mind, just saw a video where the i7 920 severely bottlenecks the 780GTX ti. Guess its a full upgrade for me smile.gif Now 1 or 2 cards... hmmm.... Im thinking 1 is fine, with the option there at some point.

Then I'd say go 4770k and one GPU for now. Again, I'm practically on the same system with a 3770k, 780 Ti, and 1440p monitor. One GPU does it's justice with AA off or on 2x and shadows on medium or high (Assuming everything else is cranked up). I would still like 2 so I can push 120 FPS on every game with max settings, but not necessary for now. So maybe hold off on the second 780 Ti smile.gif .

Current i5 or i7 and a single 780 or 780 ti will do just fine providing you're not pushing AA to hard.

Selling both of your 6990's could fetch enough money to cover over half the cost too. Mining aside, I'd say they're worth $300 each.

Check out these multiplayer benchmarks: Keeping in mind, I basically have the i7 930 in this review, but mine is NOT running stock, 4.1ghz instead:

Thoughts???? Just upgrade the GPU?

This is killing me lol

Also found this - same CPU, lower clock than me:

Leaning towards just getting 2x 780TI's after seeing this! This is like car shopping lol

Looks like that haswell i7 will give you a 25 FPS minimum boost. I would imagine your first gen i7 would suffer trying to push two of the highest end cards. Perhaps not.

At stock clock speeds. But mine is basically double the speed.

That board only has one pci-e slot so it can't run two cards.

Make sure the board you pick has two slots and has room between the slots for air circulation.

Maximus Vi hero does.
