There are many reasons I am asking this, notably going from a huge full ATX beast case, to a ITX case...

But would the gaming performance be worth it @ 1080p, maybe even 1080 @ 120Hz...

Its hard to find any benchies of 480's anymore with current games directly compared to a Titan.


Old Rig:
980X @ 4.2GHz OC
6GB DDR3 1600
Dual 480's 1.5GB in SLI

to
4770K
16GB DDR3 ~2000
One Titan

No. The 780 is a much better deal than the Titan.

Thanks for the input and will look at that as an alternative.

What im asking specially is will I see a performance increase going from 2 480s to 1 titan? @ 1080p

If not, then I dont know if I want to spend the money

1080p nope
1080p 120hz maybe

Unless you are really intent on form factor, I would say stick with the 980. Take your 480s and sell them in the market. Then take that cash and put it towards a 780 if you are purely gaming, and titan if you need the compute power. For gaming though the 780 would be the beat choice I think, but again if you are looking for 1080p at 120hz. If you are just plain 1080p I would wait a while longer.

Keep the 980X, sell the 480s, and pick up a 780 thumb.gif

I don't know if you have those 480's Overclocked.

But a Pair of 480's @ 850mhz is around the speed of a GTX680 @ 1350-1400mhz (or a 7970 @ 1200-1300mhz). So a GTX780 would be only slightly faster then that.

Wouldn't be a huge upgrade, but bumping up the V-Ram and getting rid of SLI would be nice. Though never really had a problem with SLI myself, running out of v-ram tends to be my problem.

Unless you really want to spend 1k on a GPU, I would get the GTX780. Or wait for the HD8970(should be coming in a month or two), should be about par or slightly faster then the gtx780 for less $$. Titan ATM has one of the worst price/performance ratios, better card for epeen reasons.

4770K is a good choice, plan on going to route myself. Along with HD8970 (and eventually 8970 CF).


Though even for 1080p gaming a GTX770 is more then enough, but will be nothing more then a side grade in terms of GPU power.

If you get rid of your 480's, your system temps will most likely drop. You will also be using less electricity, too.

You could get GTX 680 SLI. This would outperform a GTX 780 and GTX TITAN in most games. However, if you think SLI will be too pronlematic, go with the 780.
As for the CPU, either keep the one you have now or get a 3930K. Next gen games will take use of 6 to 8 cores. Well, a lot of the newer games will.

GIGABYTE Z390 Ultra
AMD ASUS STRIX OC VEGA 64
G-Skill Trident 2x8GB DDR4 4000MHz
Samsung EVO NVM.e 250GB
SeaSonic 1250W Gold
Corsair 900D + Custom Loop.

Mostly just a change in heat and electricity use for gaming . Maybe better use of newer drivers.

Thanks for the input guys. I just wanted to see if I would have any upgrade in performance, or would it be more of a "side grade"
