GTX 680 4GB or GTX 770 2GB? - Page 2

post #11 of 32
Yeah, it's whiterun, as long as you don't count that intro town.

Can you turn on ENB and take another SS? If I'm reading that shot correctly it says you have 4gb available, let's see you get up there.

I'd also like to see a list of mods you got going on if you don't mind, was going to play it again soon.

I have SLI - So it'll say 4gb, but each card is 2gb each and I just tried with ENB as well and tried to run around, but basically it stayed at the same, 1.8ish gigs, I think that's the real cap, it won't actually hit 2gigs.

I'll grab you a list of mods later smile.gif

Thanks man.

That's weird that Windows registers it as 4gb when you only have 2 usable.

^ I do agreed with you. As I modded Skyrim heavily myself. Whiterun is not that bad, but once start wandering around the forest area (Rivenwood) with flora overhaul and ENB, etc.. It will eat the videocard alive.

My recommendation, go for 680 4gb. It is more future proof. Especially, next gen console are here, the texture sizes will only get bigger. 2gb will not suffice even at 1080p.

Hey all, thanks for the replies, I was sleeping. The GTX 680 is $50 more than the 770 so idk... I wouldnt mind spending 50 extra just need to know which ones better
post #16 of 32
They're equivalent cards, the 770 is a newer version that performs a little better and the other has more vRAM that doesn't provide any benefit at 1080p (unless you have like, 72 Skyrim mods).

My vote is still for the 770, especially at $50 less, but you have all the info you need and just need to decide for yourself.
post #17 of 32
I'd have to agree - The 680 at 4gb is more beneficial at 2560x1440p resolutions or so. At 1080p, it's usually with games very cranked up or bunches of addons like what I have, to drag it under 2gb. However, it really comes down to how often you upgrade.

The 770 isn't really different then a 680, it's mostly rebranded with a better bios as people have stated already. If you are going to hold onto the card for 4-5 years, I'd grab the 680 because of the extra VRAM in case games do come out heavier in that department (they will)

If you upgrade every 1-2 years, grab the 770 because that's $50 you save for something else, and you probably won't hit the VRAM wall very often, even if it's 2gb.

GTX 770 is faster. If it were my money, I'd by the GTX 770.

The only way I'd get the 4GB GTX 680 is if you're playing games at resolutions higher than 2560x1440.

In this case I'd get the 770. at 1080p the vram isn't coming into play. don't pay more for a slightly slower card.
