16 gb ram, GTX 770, and i7 4770K. How will this do next gen?

Wait, is the 770 really not good enough for 1080p now? My understanding of it was that it would be good for it for 3-4 years, and that the 780 would be overkill if you didn't have either a higher resolution or more than one monitor.

take it from a pro who only buys high end cards, the 780 is high end now and will last longer than the 770 (which is a slightly enhanced 680)

ppl here will recommend what they own instead of telling you whats good for you to buy

The gtx 770 will last you for 3-4 years, but not on ultra settings. I doubt the gtx 780 would last that long too.

I'd say the 780/Titan should be able to handle most games at 1080p/60fps/Ultra/FXAA for another 1 1/2 years. However, if you factor SSAA, or even MSAA into the equation, they become obsolete almost immediately.

is this topic a joke or what, of course the gtx 770 will max out any game at 1080p are you kidding, i max games out on a gtx 680sc on a hp zr30 at 1600p, omg.
#16xavieris1984Posted 9/7/2013 11:18:22 AM
the titan will blow away the graphics on a 1600p setup let alone 1080p, wow.
#17BrainhunterPosted 9/7/2013 11:18:54 AM
I wouldn't spend more than $300-$400 on a single GPU solution at this early stage into next-gen. When playing at 1080P, anything higher than $400 quickly loses out on performance/$. Even at 1440P, higher end GPUs struggle at maintaining 60FPS consistently with MSAA/SSAA enabled.

I'd hold off for a while or spend no more than a GTX770 at 1080P or lower. If you're gaming at 900P, you only really need a GTX660 or HD7850 to maintain a good FPS with relatively high settings (minus AA).

If you need to increase performance down the line, you can SLI these for a big boost in FPS (they already outperform a GTX Titan when SLI'd), or sell them and get another single GPU solution, when prices have dropped.

$800 = SLI 770's > Titan = $1000.

Take it from this guy if you'd like.

Maxing everything on 1080p with a GTX 770 over the next two years should be easy enough if you don't go overly crazy with AA. The performance gain from 770 to 780 is pretty pitiful if you take the huge increase in price into account. I was in your situation and had extra money but went for the 770 because I am a sensible consumer. I actually made a topic here a while ago and everyone suggested the 770.

A lot of people here exaggerate greatly, and Trance_Fan in particular is far from a credible poster, so don't take him seriously.

And you'll definitely be able to run stuff over the next 5 years. That's not even questionable.

1) your beginning claim is laughable.

2) you are acting like a $650+ 780 is WORLDS better performance wise than a $400-$450 770SC @ 1080p, which is debatable, especially when you consider the price to performance ratio. Some people like to get the best bang for their buck and while the 780 is a great card and definitely a consideration, so is building an SLI ready rig with a superclocked 770 and adding another card in a year or 2.. (or 3).
