in this list i included the 280x, because i'm more confident about it for its higher memory

then i thought about the 770 4GB ... and i want to know which is better because the 770 has extra memory

thanks ..

What resolution do you have ? you have more power supply than you need too. 600 watt would be plenty unless your adding another gpu.

adding another card is a possibility in future .. not now

resolution is 1080p 27"

i read that single 770 4GB not utilize all the 4GB, unless for SLI

I want to ask you because i don't want to add another GPU if one is very enough.

even in future .. I like to buy a new GPU and sell the previous

or buy another 770 for SLI >> that's a possibility too

a single 2gb 770 is enough for 1080p. no need for 4gb unless your are going to higher res. yes in sli the 4gb can be used but again. its not needed at 1080p.

do you recommend it over 770 2GB?
.. you should get whichever is cheaper imo. The difference is very small. they go back and forth depending on the game. I prefer nvidea cards but if the 280x was more than $20 cheaper thats what i would buy.

the extra 1GB for 280x isn't benefit more 2GB for 770?

this is my most concern because they very similar of power .. except the memory

i think the extra 1GB helps in BF4 since they required this memory for the game

the vram is not as important as the 384bit vrs 256bit but it stil doesnt matter at 1080p.

I have 2gb 660ti in sli I can max bf4 with 4msaa and hold over 90fps. 2gb is all you need at 1080p.

I would go with a 280X it has 1 more Gb vram and + 128bit to go with it vs the 770 256bit for 2 or 4GB vram, the AMD drivers have improved very much so no problems there but its just my opinion

at 1080, go with the 280 if you can find one for $300 or cheaper. it will max out the same games those 2 can. and the games the 280 can't, those 2 can't either.

now read this: put the savings on an i7. turn off ht if not needed. turn it on on games like BF3 MP and the like.

no one flame me pls.

edit: the 280X is a rehashed 7970 and prolly as fast as a 7970GHz out the box.

Here is a 7970 stock . . .

here are the 7950 (280) and the 7970 oc'ed to 1100 . . .

if you are into benching . . . sure get either the 770 or the 280X.

The cards trade blows. Get whichever card is cheaper.

One card will be faster in x game, and the other will be faster in y game, and both will be equally fast in z game. Therefore, the performance is pretty similar, so unless the card is consistently faster in like, 1 game that you really really care about, it doesn't particularly matter which card you get.

In any case, more than anything else it strikes us as particularly funny that we're once again looking at a tie. That's right: on average GTX 770 and 7970GE are tied. GTX 770 delivers 102% of the performance of 7970GE at both our high quality 2560x1440 and high quality 1920x1080 settings. Of course as with some of the past battles between AMD and NVIDIA in this segment, these cards may be tied in our benchmarks but they're anything but equal.

After all is said and done, the GTX 770 ends up beating the 7970GE at 6 games, while the 7970GE takes the other 4. Meanwhile within those individual games we'll see anything between a near-tie to a very significant 20% advantage for either side, depending on the game in question. This is very much a repeat of what we saw with the GTX 680 versus the 7970GE, and GTX 670 versus the 7970.

Our advice then for prospective buyers is to first look at benchmarks for the games they intend to play. If you're going to be focused on only a couple of games for the near future then there's a very good chance one card or the other is going to be the best fit. Otherwise for gamers facing a wide selection of games or looking at future games where their performance is unknown, then the GTX 770 and 7970GE are in fact tied, and from a performance perspective you couldn't go wrong with either one.

With that said, given AMD's current pricing and performance they seem to have done a good job picking a favorable location. In previous times AMD would go up against the $400 GTX 770 with their similarly priced 7970GE; now they're doing so with the slightly slower R9 280X, priced at $100 less. Consequently NVIDIA has the slightest edge of about 5% on our new benchmark suite, but it's close; much closer than a $300 card should be. On a pure price/performance basis then the R9 280X is not to be ignored, as it's going to come within a few percent of GTX 770 - depending on the game of course - for $100 less. Those are big savings that are hard to argue with and will help make R9 280X a "win" for AMD.

Neither of them is a "new" architecture, so by now it's pretty well known what each can do, and both are about equal, so it's up to you to decide what is more important (drivers, warranty, cost, brand preference, etc) but you can't go wrong either way. Essentially performance will be about the same between the two.

This, but don't forget though, with the GeForce you get some exciting features as well. ShadowPlay is one to name. Just keep one thing in mind, these are "value added" features; you shouldn't spend a lot more than what you're comfortable with.

Yea .. they both are similar

I chose 770, it's more cheaper
biggrin.gif


and thanks for the quotes .. it's really tie between the two cards

Though, I learned that AMD optimized its card for BF4, which I love this game and want to play it. so i chose 280x for that reason and the extra GB with 384-bit developed bus

and I saw other videos about 770 and they are very similar in game play

so I did two pcpartpicker lists

one with 6300 and the other with 4670k

if you want to help in giving your opinions about the two lists.

i'm pretty focusing more for 4670k based build, where 6300 looks really nice in overclock YouTube videos. and cheaper.
