Always check a game's surround capability before acquisition. I've learned this the hard way. frown.gif

I originally had two 680s, but last year after I settled into playing mostly Guild Wars 2, I sold my second one as it made almost no difference. I recently picked up a second 680 so I'm back to SLI

Most games will run decently at 5760x1080 on a single 680 but if you play the newer FPS games, you'll be much happier with 680 SLI.

I recently upgraded to the ASUS 144hz screens so now even 680 SLI has room for improvement - I'm hoping a pair of 780s will get me where I want to be because I really like my small system and I don't want to have to go Tri-SLI.

Nice setup. Do you do any 3d surround gaming or only 2d?
Even my pair of Titans have difficulty reaching and maintaining such a high fps of 120hz or over in some new AAA titles with ultra settings. But 90fps and above actually has amazingly smooth animation that I am very happy with.

I think the 780 is going to be a big hit. Especially with your setup, that needs more GPU grunt than VRAM. Other 60hz surround setup could be limited in some games with only 3gb of memory of the 780 when in SLI.

Debating changing my 680 4gb to 780s... need to see how that 384-bit interface helps in surround with only 3gb.

GTX 780 is the only card worth upgrading to really if you have GTX 670 OC'd or better already
and not a Titan. I'm not sure if going from a GTX 670 to GTX 770 is worth any hassle either.
GTX 780 or stay home.
my GTX 660 Ti will be probably a GTX 770 or I can sell some hardware and grab a GTX 780.
post #4886 of 8945
In actuality there are not too many games that use more than 3gb VRAM currently @ 5760x1080 (Win 7 aero disabled), unless you are using super high AA in only a couple of games or a ton of mods.

I can say coming from 670s & 680 2,3,&4-way SLI the 256bit interface always felt like a henderence at surround resolution and MSAA/SMAA in games like BF3 & Crysis 3. With MSAA enabled they always felt less smooth compared to no AA. I ALWAYS found that memory interface was the issue because when I would OC the mem the game became smoother, but still not as smooth as no AA. This is with the same framerate.

@King 4x4
It would be very difficult for me to get 3gb cards at your resolution with the GPU performance of a couple of 780s. How many games go above 3gb with your 680s?

@ Malmental. I would agree, 670 to 770 is probably not worth the hassle, unless you get some discounts, and can unload your 670s at a good price.

I'd have to get at least $300 each maybe a dollar or two more for my 670 PE/OC's since they are basically @ 680 speeds already.
and even on stock BIOS I can get mid 1200MHz's when boost kicks in..

Maxwell anyone.?
post #4888 of 8945
Malmental, how are you finding those 670s in SLI? cheers.gif I went from 580s to 670s and the performance gain was huge at 5760x1080.

I must say, my 670's are holding up in Metro at 5760 everything maxed except ssaa set to 0! I tried to play it at 1080p, literally felt claustrophobic! I dont think il ever be able to go back to single monitor gaming. tongue.gif Thinking of throwing in a third 670 sonic.gif

the jump from SLi N560GTX-Ti 448's to N670GTX PE 2GD5/OC's I have to admit it's pretty nice.
I loved my 448's and thought of every reason to keep them and not upgrade.
but when not looking for a deal is when they usually pop up..
I feel I got enough GPU strength that I'm thinking of upgrading my 2500K @ 4.5GHz to a 2700K or 3770K
and also upping my resolution from 3840 x 1024 to either 4800 x 900 or look for a 1440p monitor.

BF3 at the moment plays around 3.4gb.
