{Solved} Upgrading GPU

Recommended Posts

Aj1080pGamer    0

Hey Community so I am having a bit of an issue trying to decide between 2 GPU's and I don't know if I should got with 2 GTX 760 MSI 4gb cards or 1 GTX 780.... I know 2 760 will out bet a 780 in performance and frames but I also do a lot of video editing and am stumped about what to get...

Power Consumption is not an issue and I am looking to get the best performance and also be good for video editing.

Would The Gtx 760 be a good choice for SLI or should I save for the 780.

Thanks for the help in advance

If you have the money for the 760 SLI, I'd go for that, but if you get the money for the 780 soon, id take that, because you can than save for the 2nd 780 :D

Edit: IF 760 SLI or 780 you wont really feel a diffrence in performance

both fast as fuck :P

Have you considered getting 2 GTX 770's? They run like a dream! If they're not in your price range then I think I would probably go with a GTX 780?

Id say the single gtx780 would be the best thing for you then.

SLI is good an all but power consumption wise it will be much higher and the actual enhancement would not be much greater than a single 780.

Also unless you motherboard has 2 PCI-E 16x slots I wouldnt even bother with SLI

Nvidia Gtx 770 SLI has 35~% better performance than Nvidia Gtx 780 in 2560x1440.

And you dont need 2 PCI-E 16 slots to run the cards, You will gain such a small amount of performance of 2 PCI-E 16 vs Dual x8.

So if you have the money, go for the 770's :)

Well tbh 90% of the motherboards support it today, and if he is ready to spend 680£ on GPUs he surely will have the support if not he is very lost in the computer world

SLI will always beat your GTX780.. It depends on your budget and your preferences and you're CPU..

If you ain't on a Budget go on GTX780ti in SLI :P

I got one of those, just installed a waterblock on it too. Running 3DMark on extreme with barely over 50 degrees.

Screw the budget, get a GTX 780TI! You wont have to worry about SLI for atleast the next 10 years.

Tbh if you are thinking of buying the 780ti you should wait until the Titan black get released. Same CUDA cores and bandwidth. But you will have 6gb vram and the circuits will be hand picked, and it will also have a higher clock frequency and will possibly beat the shit out of the 780ti in overclocking possibilities.

Then again you have something even more "overkill"-ish.

Basically, just with the 760-780 you'll have plenty for running games with decent FPS, I just went nuts with the 780TI because...I could :D

Not gonna waste on a card that expensive when I can get 2 GTX780ti for somewhat the same price which will run better then the Titan black !

Or just wait for the GTX 790.
