Worthy Upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So with the prices dropping, I've seriously been considering upgrading to SLI GTX 780s or CrossFire R9 290s. Would that be a worthy upgrade from my current setup for 1440p, or should I wait and see what nVidia brings with Maxwell?

wait for maxwell, if you cant wait then just buy a msi lighting 290, actually that one is still very expensive..
so go with sapphire trix 290 or get a 780

i wouldnt really bother with sli unless you are gonna run multiple monitors then sure
even a 6-8gb 780 will suffice.

Wait for pirate islands since Last time I read a news from dx12 ,maxwell wouldnt have support for dx12 maybe the news was wrong...but I would wait and see

If your 660s are struggling with 1440, grab some cheap Hawaii cards from the miners dumping their stock. Otherwise, I would also say wait for Pirate Islands.
