Most appropriate GPU for 4770k

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

Just wanted some advice on which GPU to get for I7 4770k. Its either 780 or 780ti. I know TI is the king and all but in most 780ti builds people have been using the hexocore from Intel. So it got me thinking and I would not want to buy a GPU that the processor cant match.


Please advise

an i7 4770k is plenty to keep up with a GTX780Ti..
It's plenty to keep up with 780Ti SLI..
So buy whatever card or cards you want thumb.gif

Some people have Hexa-cores w/ 780Ti's because the budget that gets a 780Ti / SLI is a big budget, and LGA2011 chips are in that budget bracket too.

Either GPU will be fine, it just comes down to how much you want to spend.

Go with the 780 or R9 290 if you want better value. Go with the 780 Ti or 290X if you want the best performance.

It's more so dependant on the resolution you are trying to drive. But if your budget allows for the ti then I would go for that.

65% Editing
35% Gaming

I've got the build with 2133mhz 16GB ram on the ROG VI-Gene. Can please someone tell me if the 780TI is worth buying instead of the 780. Does the extra performance justify the extra cost? please bare in mind that I will be using my PC for about 65% editing and 35% gaming. I would like great performance in both but if the TI would greatly improve editing performance in comparison to the 780, I would buy it with no hesitation. I am not willing to pay more for a graphics card that won't really help with editing. I couldn't care less about the 10 extra FPS on the TI if the editing is more or less the same:).

I hope this narrows it down to what I'll be doing with my PC.

Editing what? Program code? Audio? Video? CAD?

What programs?


Performance scaling in pro apps with high end GPUs depends on many factors. The CPU continues to be the most important component in most workstation environments, with nice GPUs offering performance improvements in limited areas.

Here's an article that may offer some insight: http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Adobe-Premiere-Pro-CC-Professional-GPU-Acceleration-502/

Notice that in some cases, increased GPU strength doesn't help (1080P encoding stops scaling above the K2000 on the Z87 platform, which is the workstation equivalent of a GTX650, we don't observe any additional scaling in that workload until we get more CPU involved (X79)).


In terms of performance/$ in many GPGPU workloads, The $100-200 range is the sweet spot for GPUs, with Maxwell GTX750 and GTX750Ti, and R7 260X and R9 270 offering the most usable GPGPU performance/$ when considered overall. Above that level of GPU performance you'll run into more and more CPU bottlenecks that prevent the GPU from assisting any more. This class of GPU will offer most workstations that don't depend on workstation drivers the highest value. For many users, the i7-4930K + GTX750Ti would be a better than an i7-4770K + GTX780. YMMV.
