2 years ago#1
I'm thinking about upgrading my video card (I have gtx 580) I was going to upgrade it to gtx 780, then I was like why not Titan ?
I googled it apparently there isn't much of a difference in the performance so I decided to go with the 780

but then I read on a website that having 2x 760 will give you better performance than the 780 and also better than titan.

so what do you guys think should I get ? the price of 2x 760 is a little cheaper than one 780

2 760s will give you better performance than a 780 but it's not perfect for gaming at 1440p or higher due to memory bandwidth.

If the price of a Titan is no problem to you, but you want even better performance, why not get 2 770 4GB? Roughly the same price, had better performance, and you would have plenty of VRAM.

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.

Go 780, SLI down the line. Or wait for the flagship of AMD's next line of cards.

Typically better compatibility and less issues with a single card solution.

2 760s will give you more bang for you money. It beats a single titan and 780 while still being cheaper. However, it also means less room for upgrade since you already use the SLI slot while if you pick a 780 or Titan, once it start having problem with future games, you can SLI another one instead of scrapping the whole setup for next gen GPUs.

I've never once had issues with SLI. So yeah.

I'd say:

-Get one 770 4gb. Test it out, and see how it performs.

-If you find it lacking, get a 2nd one and SLI them.
