Computer

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello. I want to build a new gaming computer. The problem is that I can't decide for which combo to go for:

a) i5-4670K + GTX 780 Ti
b) i7-4930K + dual GTX 770's.

The second option is only about € 200 more expensive than first, which is not much for me. Is it worth to get the second combo?

Yes. I can attest to the power of that second rig, do it, be happy! biggrin.gif

Haswell-E is coming this summer, so keep that in mind before you rush off to buy a 4930k. In my opinion, you would be better served by a 4670k/devils-canyon-refresh with a 780ti/2x 780s. The vast majority of games these days are GPU- rather than CPU-bound. An unlocked i5 will be able to handle whatever games you throw at it, and you would see more noticeable performance increases from the stronger video cards.

edit: Also, what resolution are you playing at? 2GB 770s might have issues with 1440p+ gaming.

Shouldn't but its possible. when I run my 2x 2GB 770's on max settings in Assassins creed black flag @ 5760x1080, I dont usually run out of vram. Granted I could just not be paying attention to it at the right times lol.

I'll play @ 1920x1080
But 2x 770's are faster and cheaper than single 780 Ti, that's what I like. The rig becomes more expensive when I add the 4930K, so the talk is more into CPU's. There's almost no game right now that do benefit from a hexa-core CPU, but maybe in the future will. I know about the Haswell-E and Haswell Refresh, and also about the Broadwell. Does Broadwell actually will be available this year or only in the 2015?

We don't know for sure about Broadwell, but most people seem to think early-mid 2015.

SLI 770s are certainly the best bang for your buck, but i'm firmly in the camp of "Better single card now, add another when the price drops."
