i like dell over asus/acer for the fact they have better quality control and the TN panel also is faster latency than ips. >.<<br />
i hear acer and asus have lots of issues trying to get the right monitor that has the least flaws.

wish dell had an ips model >.< i want to upgrade everything! have a crappy 60hz 1080p samsung with such a terrible picture quality compared to ips and newer TN models. its also like 8 years old.

SLI GTX 780 should only equal a single GTX 1070 at the very best scenario and have no chance in hell coming even close to GTX 1080 Ti.

I've proven recently that SLI GTX 970 OC can beat GTX 1070, but i do not think SLI GTX 780 OC could. I know from experience that SLI GTX 780 Ti OC could beat GTX 1070, but nothing less from NVIDIA.

SLI GTX970 VS GTX1070

a 1080 would be a significant upgrade. the extra cash could also net you a new monitor

hey thanks everyone for the input! I decided last week to get the asus vg248qe monitor because my current monitor was an 8 year old 60hz samsung 24inch and i've never gamed on 144hz before. almost got the 1440p dell monitor. i was set on just using the 780 until volta came out and just use the 1080p monitor but i was unable to get 144hz on most games with the 780 on high/ultra settings obviously so i gave in and got the 1080ti sc black edition since i dont really need a ftw3 model or the icx sensors, etc.

i know its extreme overkill for a 1080p monitor but at least for almost every damn game out there, i will be able to get a smooth 144 fps at ultra settings now. plus later on, i can get a higher resolution monitor if i feel the need, but so far the 1080p at 24 inches is doing great and it was half the price than the dell 1440p since it was on sale.

thanks for the info guys.

Get GTX 1070, 1080, or 1080ti,

or even GTX 1060 6GB (best value for 1080p.)

Forget about 780SLI, it only has 3 GB vram, which is very limited nowadays. You will ends up upgrading again.
Also it is worse performances per watt, each 780 about 250watt, so 2x 780 can eat +500watt
compared to any single pascal cards which is far far better performance per watt.
