GTX 770.. Another is-it-worth-it-to-upgrade topic :D

system in sig.

I can run Battle Field 4 now and the new Assassins Creed on ultra with aliasing off in 1080P.. any hint of aliasing and I get stuttering. I do have an older mother board if that's a deciding factor in anything - ASRock Z68 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 which doesn't support 3.0

I'd love to crank up the aliasing.. its hard justifying 400 dollars for a small perk but I can always run sli down the road and sell my current cards for a hundred each. Thoughts?

If you are going to spend $400, might as well go for the 290.

Have you tried disabling Crossfire?

Anti-aliasing. Aliasing is what it removes.

You could just lower some of your other settings in AC4. For example, HBAO+ (the best possible ambient occlusion in AC4) is barely noticeable usually and even less noticeable in a third-person action game like AC4.

doh! haha

Anyway, I have not. The first thing I do when I boot up a game is max everything except AA and all games run smoothly.. when I get confident with my perfomance Ill test the waters with a little anti aliasing (2x MMAA) and immediately get brought back to reality with dated hardware.

I thought 770s were around $330. Are you thinking about the 4gb version?

Yup, the 4gb version for sure. I read BF4 has hit over 2gb of vram with some of the details cranked up. Also, the R9 290 is a no-go.. sold out everywhere due to the bitcoin thingie

IIRC, 770 can't utilize 4GB (doesn't have the raw power) without being paired up (aka sli), though.

GTX 770 4GB cannot use its high memory to its full ability due to the bandwidth constraints imposed by its bus width. It's more ideal in SLI at 1440P, but at 1080P, a GTX 770 2GB is sufficient, and 4GB will show little to no improvement.

GTX 770 is really the best Nvidia GPU for 1080P gaming: everything over it is to address better AA / higher resolutions over 1080P. I have one myself. As soon as the Nvidia GSYNC monitors are released in a 1440P format, a better-priced GPU for 1440P gaming would be on the market, or I could SLI the GTX 770.

When do you think Nvidia will have Nsync monitors? Justin is so dreamy.
