Gtx 670 ftw sli vs Gtx 780

#1murphy230Posted 9/13/2013 11:02:38 AM
Hey I'm probably going to buy a new graphic card today, I have a Gtx 670 ftw. I heard that sli 670s will beat a single 780 or a 690 would it be better to sell my 670 and buy a 780 or buy my second 670 to sli

Thanks for the opinions

Is your 670 not working to your liking? If not get another 670. If it is I'd say wait til the new line of cards comes out because one generation isn't much of a jump even going up to the next tier of cards.

If your PSU can handle it and you have adequate cooling go SLI.

Well I mainly wanted to get an upgrade because I have some extra money. I have an i5 3570k at 4.2 ghz, and a 750w power supply. And the Gtx 670s have dropped in price since the new release. I feel like one Gtx 670 ftw won't be good enough to max games next generation.

I would go for another 670 then. How much RAM does your 670 have? It seems games will start using over 2 GB so that's the only problem I can think of.

It's only a 2gb version which is lower, I wish I knew it made a difference when I bought it oh well.

I don't think it'll beat a 690, but definitely a 780.
