yes!! i totally agree.My 580 is holding up like a champ. But i will get a new gpu with either the 800 or 900 series come out(if the price is right). Speaking of prices,why do they price them so high? I get jealous reading how people have 780ti sli and stuff,i sure dont have that kind of money,there are more just like me.Please don't bash me by saying that.Anyway, would they be losing money if they priced them a lot lower? 500+ is insane! I can pay alot of bills with that.I just dont understand how one graphic card alone is worth more than the new gaming consoles.

Whether you consider it ridiculous or not, there is a setting in the game for that amount of AA. If you spend $1200+ on GPUs you most likely want to push the limits of your machine or software. Or is buying multiple GPUs ridiculous as well? It could be to some and that's fine.

No need to get defensive. I don't find a 30% performance hit and 1.5GB more VRAM use useful since 2X MSAA looks identical to 8X MSAA, or within 99%. Do I find that (8X MSAA) worthless? Yes. Mainly for the insane performance hit/VRAM hit without an increase in image quality, even at 1600p. Would I rather have closer to 80-90 fps with FXAA/2X MSAA? Or 8X MSAA at 40-50 fps which looks .05-1% better. I know what I would pick. But that's me, not you. But it's all up to the gamer. It's not my choice. It's your choice. It's the choice of each and every individual PC gamer. I'm not telling you or anyone what to do or what is better. Just my preference, which of course doesn't match other preferences.

If that's your thing, go for it. It's cool. That's the great thing about PC gaming. Choices. It's all in the eye of the beholder, i'm not criticizing anyone who likes tons of AA. Just stating how I feel on it, but how I feel isn't how others feel. thumb.gif

Now I should say, there's a certain point to where you want more VRAM. If you're using 7680*1440, yes, get 6GB cards. If you're using 4k? You can get away with 3GB if you don't use SSAA or 8X MSAA, but 6GB certainly can be desirable for 4k as well. Anything less than 4k. 3GB is fine. Unless you just want tons of AA and the associated performance hit for 8X MSAA. As I said numerous times, I dont' find 8X MSAA useful over 2X. But that's me. Others love 8X MSAA, which I don't understand, but hey! That's cool. Choices. It's all good. PC gaming. Master race and all that sorta thing. wink.gif It's up to the buyer to decide what IQ/MSAA level they so desire, and what VRAM amount they want for that, and that's all good.

The higher your resolution the less practical high AA becomes.

No defense, just healthy discussion!

The 8x MSAA setting is more about finding out just how far you can push your machine. That setting really isn't needed at 2560x1600. I found out that it takes a ton of performance... Yet it was still playable for me. So that gives me an idea of just how much grunt/power two TIs have.
post #305 of 1081
I'm in agreement with dboy honestly. I always use max AA as well as every other setting in-game set to maximum simply because the amount of money I spent on my system entitles me to that I think. Doesn't really matter to me what the performance hit is because with two Titans I can achieve perfectly playable frame rates whether set to 2xMSAA or 8x...

That's what I intially thought as well.

Should I sell off my 780ti and just use the 780 and upgrade to the 780ti 6GB? Selling off the 780ti will fund more than enough for the upgrade cost. Figure if I'm going to pick up a 1440p in the coming months, it wouldn't hurt to have.

If they ever release an affordable 60Hz 4k panel I may add a third Titan to my setup...

Enthusiast affordable. Other 4k panels cost in the thousands. The Rog 1440p 120hz monitor coming out is 700 and some change I believe. The hardware to run either monitor dwarfs the cost of the monitor itself.
